BUFFALO, NY - 2 On Your Side has confirmed former President Trump campaign adviser Michael Caputo will testify before a House Intelligence Committee in two weeks.
Caputo's attorney Dennis Vacco says Caputo agreed to appear in a closed session voluntarily, without a subpoena on July 14th. The committee is looking into Russian meddling in the 2016 Presidential election.
The story was originally reported by the New York Times.
Caputo was the campaign manager for Carl Paladino’s campaign for governor. He has also appeared numerous times on WBEN as a fill-in talk show host. Caputo was also a host of the political show "2 Sides" on WGRZ.
For a time, Caputo did work in Russian as a public relations and political consultant. His work brought him contact with then-Russian President Boris Yeltsin and future president Vladimir Putin.
Caputo also did work briefly for President Trump’s campaign. Since the election, Politico reported that Caputo has shopped his public relations firm Zeppelin Communications in Washington looking to strike up partnership.
Caputo is managing partner for the firm which has offices in East Aurora, Miami and Moscow.
