Ex-Trump Adviser Caputo Slams Campaign, Denies Russia Ties

Brad Parscale accepts invite to House intel committee, denies any collusion

"To my knowledge I never spoke about his campaign with anyone remotely associated with the Russian government", Caputo said according to the opening statement he made public.

"At no time did I ever talk about Russian contacts with any member of the campaign".

Mr Caputo testified before the committee for more than three hours on Friday behind closed doors.

CNN first reported last month that House investigators wanted to talk with Parscale about the Trump campaign's digital operation and question whether Russian Federation aided an explosion of pro-Trump fake news.

Brad Parscale said he is "unaware of any Russian involvement" in the digital section of Trump's campaign, but added that he agreed to the interview with the committee and to "sharing with them everything I know".

Following his appearance before the committee, Mr Caputo told reporters that the panel had requested a broad and expansive number of documents and that they were negotiating limits on those.


Both the House and Senate Intelligence committees are investigating Russia's attempt to manipulate the outcome of the 2016 US presidential election as well as allegations of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and high-ranking Russian officials.

The digital director of President Donald Trump's campaign, Brad Parscale, said Friday he had accepted an invitation to testify before the House intelligence committee's Russian Federation investigation.

President Donald Trump's campaign digital director, Brad Parscale, said Friday he will meet with the House Intelligence Committee later this month. She also said he worked for "Gazprom-Media to improve Putin's image in the United States".

The White House and Trump campaign has repeatedly denied that there were any contacts between officials and Russians.

Caputo was asked about the latest revelations in the investigation that key members of the Donald Trump's campaign - his son, his son-in-law and his campaign chairman - met in June 2016 with a Russian lawyer who had been expected to deliver damaging information about Hillary Clinton that came directly from the Russian government.
