The former Trump campaign aide got mixed up in one of the weirdest episodes of the Trump-Russia affair. He talks about it all, from his brief run-in with the mysterious Russian Henry Oknyansky to the FBI agent who showed up in a muscle car to whisk him to Mueller’s lair.

This reinforces my view that Mueller and his team were partisan thugs. As I’ve written before, only in America do the winners of an election get persecuted by the losers.
I don’t know that this interview is more “wow” than your the other interviews, but it’s still “wow”.
A very fine interview. Thank you, Mr. York and Mr. Caputo.
I think it was Sir John Harington who said, “Cruelty ever proceeds from a vile mind, and often from a cowardly heart.” That in a nutshell describes this miserable scene of FBI set-ups and the subsequent Mueller team efforts with perjury traps to attempt a de facto coup of a duly elected president. My study of American history leads me to conclude that never has our republic been in greater danger. And given the current composition of the House, it still is in danger.
It appears Mueller’s team knew Caputo and Papadopoulos were being set up. They knew that these two men were innocent of collusion. They continued the effort to set them up. They set perjury traps for witnesses they knew to be innocent. They knew the only “dirty” contacts were the ones the FBI concocted.
Somebody needs to file a complaint with bar counsel and disbar these disgraceful hacks. This was beyond entrapment. This was collusion in a misuse of government authority in a dirty partisan stunt.
I haven’t paid much attention to Michael Caputo during this entire investigation, but he really comes off as a totally honest guy. What a tragedy for him to have to go through this.
Don’t forget General Flynn. The FBI had a transcript of the phone call they questioned him about, and after their first questioning the investigator – none other than Peter Strzok – concluded General Flynn was telling the truth. Yet Mueller and his team chose to bankrupt Flynn and ruin his life, as well as his family.
And yet all along, we’ve been told by EVERYONE that Robert Mueller is of the highest integrity, straight shooter, man of the law, blah blah freaking blah.
These are all Democrats, using government power and government bottomless resources, to achieve Democrat Party ends. Innocent lives ruined are just the cost of doing business. The end justifies the means.
We have to get Michael Caputo to a Richochet meetup.
It was interesting and chilling. His family is getting death threats.
Lately, anti-Trump journalists have been complaining about how Trump’s criticizing them is leading to death threats against them.
They are too little self-aware to realize that their irresponsible reporting leads to thousands of death threats against the people they present as traitors and conspirators.
Eye-opening, even when you thought you already knew a lot about what went on.
It was very heartening to hear about President Trump’s appreciation for what so many have suffered.
Edited to add: Fantastic podcast.
It really makes me mad that Mrs. Caputo was so worried about him working for a political campaign – AND THEN BEING RIGHT! Really this should not have happened, should not be happening in America. Great interview Mr. York!
