| CNN’s Catherine Treyz and Jim Acosta report: “As part of its probe into Russian election interference, the House intelligence committee has reached out to a Donald Trump presidential campaign communications adviser, Michael Caputo” to request he provide “‘certain documents and other materials to the committee and participate in a voluntary, transcribed interview at the committee’s offices,’ according to a copy of a May 9 letter obtained by CNN. …
“Caputo has complied with the committee’s request for documents, a source familiar with the matter said.
“The committee said an interview could entail discussing ‘Russian cyber activities directed against the 2016 US election, potential links between Russia and individuals associated with political campaigns, the US government’s response to these Russian active measures, and related leaks of classified information.’ …
“Caputo has asked to participate in public testimony to clear his name, according to a source familiar with the situation.”
Add that to a Washington Post story saying the Russia investigation “identified a current White House official as a significant person of interest,” and one can see why Republican Sen. Marco Rubio would say of the Russia probe on CNN’s “State of the Union” that “this cloud is impacting everything else.”
And House oversight committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz said on ABC’s “This Week” that he expected to speak with former FBI Director James Comey on Monday.
