United States President Donald Trump thanked one of his campaign advisers, Michael Caputo, for telling Congress that the Trump campaign never colluded with Russia. On Sunday, Trump tweeted: "Thank you to former campaign adviser Michael Caputo for saying so powerfully that there was no Russian collusion in our winning campaign."

Caputo testified before the House Intelligence Committee on July 14 that he "never heard of anyone in the Trump campaign talking with Russians."

Meanwhile, Caputo told Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News "the funny thing is... I was sent in 1994 to Russia to get involved in their elections." when asked about Carlson what the US was seeking as an outcome int he election Caputo replied it was the reelection of Boris Yeltsin, which he commented wasn't that fortunate for Russia later on.
