Patriots Charge – Legal Fund For Trump Campaign Aide Michael Caputo Raises Over a Quarter Million Dollars…

Last week former campaign aide for President Trump, Michael Caputo, made headlines when he testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee and outlined the personal impacts as a person caught up in the ridiculous frenzy of the Russian conspiracy narrative and the Special Counsel investigation.  Mr. Michael Caputo finished his frustrated congressional remarks saying: “God damn you to hell.”

People began to take note; many, perhaps for the first time. The personal impact upon the life of an ordinary citizen was explained by Mr. Caputo on a few TV shows, where he outlined the jaw-dropping financial costs incurred as a witness in the insufferable investigation. An investigation based on abject nonsense and left-wing conspiracy theory.

Mr. Caputo and his family were on the precipice of financial ruin.  Patriots took note. As of this writing over 5,300 people responded to a GoFundMe fundraising effort and almost $260,000 was raised in the past three days. [SEE HERE]

    full Manafort trial transcript is a fun read.
    https://www.justsecurity.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/US-v-Manafort-full-text-transcript-hearing-motion-may-4-2018.pdf

    Manafort Lawyer: “The idea here is to keep a narrow jurisdiction on the special counsel to not end
    up with another independent counsel.” p.24

    The judge in prior comment said he had chaired a conference on special counsels, where all prior special counsels/independent counsels had shown up. Judge Ellis is well-versed on issue, and Manafort Lawyer has crafted an argument that the Judge is concerned about.

    This issue, of course, is how did the Manafort’s dealings with Ukraine ARISE during the course of an investigation into Trump campaign collusion with Russia. Team Manafort says there is NO RECORD of how this occurred. Team Mueller argues their authority comes from Rosenstein.

    The issue really whether Rosenstein was acting correctly in adding the Ukraine dealings to the scope of investigation. Did that arise as an issue DURING investigation? Or did Mueller & Rosenstein decide they could pressure Manafort to sing by recycling an old investigation?

    I don’t think Sundance had the full transcript in previous post, but had interesting take on where Rosenstein himself actually gets his authority to investigate.

      That Judge was on a roll!! Also has a good sense of humor.
      One of many zingers by the Judge:

      ” I’ve been here a long time. The vernacular is to sing. That’s what prosecutors use, but what you’ve got to be careful of is they may not just sing. They may also compose. I can see a few veteran defense counsel here, and they have spent a good deal of time in this courtroom trying to persuade a jury that there wasn’t singing, there was composing going on.”

      An enjoyable read.

              The unfairness of it all got the better of him. Personal ruin for you and your family through deliberate evil means would be pretty hard to take. I thought I read he’s had to spend over a million dollars so far. Selling his home and who knows what other things to come up with the money. How would you ever recover what it’s taken a life time to accrue. Money donated is wonderful and I hope it continues but he’ll still have to sort out what needs to be done and who knows if it will really be enough for a complete recovery to the life he once had. I understand his bitterness completely because he’s still in the middle of this wreckage with no known outcome in sight.

              No matter what he says there will still be people willing to step up and support Republican candidates but hopefully forewarned is forearmed.

              His point, I think, is that the vast majority of elected Republicans have done very, very little to actively fight back against any of this conduct by the Democrats. They seem complacent and content to allow themselves and their campaign workers to be victimized by the left, the MSM, and rogue weaponized prosecutors.

              It’s a heads up that they need to start fighting back and standing up for their own, or no one will want to take the professional risk of working on their campaigns in the future.

    Everything revolves around money. Money buys a compliant government. Money opens doors. Money gets results

    OK, so globalist money is the reason we’ve got an anti-American people government & media. The power brokers pay off those that pull the strings within our government

    None of the real powers that be are motivated by ideology or politics, they’re motivated by money, profit & power, & that is the crux of the problem

    But think of it, about 5,000 patriots were able to amass $260,000 dollars in a few days. That may seem like a drop in the bucket when you consider the obscene amounts of money thrown around in our halls of power, but what would 100 million patriots donating $25 look like?

    What if we were to organize our resources? What could we accomplish?

    Hell, we already pay the entire bill for running this country, but since it doesn’t seem to matter what the taxpayers actually want, how do we beat the under the table payments that so define our “representatives” motivations?

    Should we pay our politicians so much that they’ll be satisfied & won’t have to be bought?

    Well, since power corrupts & greedy pigs will never be satisfied, that won’t work

    So, although it’s completely wrong & unethical, maybe we should, as a collective, pay off our politicians to do the right thing, until we can revamp the entire system

    Think of the money 100 million of us has. We could easily out money the big boys

    It’s utterly ridiculous to think in these terms, but we have to do something to counter the monied influence in our government. If it has to be at this moment in time, why not our money?

I identified a “corrupt cabal” of prosecutors–most of whom Obama appointed to very high positions, and they are all part of this–Kathryn Ruemmler, Lisa Monaco, etc. Michael Dreeben is in it too–on the ropes in the Supreme Court. The book is 5-stars, all true and names names but reads like a legal thriller. Very important now. It wasn’t written for profit or politics. I funded it all myself–after praying for several years that I would not HAVE to write it. Get it at http://www.LicensedtoLie.com Thanks again for noticing and commenting. Sidney

    Has anyone seen any evidence that Caputo is on the brink of financial ruin? That he needs to sell his home? That he needs to move to NY or DC to earn more?

    Did he present records for the bills he owes, and documents indicating his relative parsimony?

    His circumstances certainly do not suggest he is incapable of paying the 125,000 he said he owes.

        No question it is unjust, unfair, and a slimy attempt to destroy him as much as possible.

        But I look at the background of the man, and it is not the background of someone with modest means.

        He has his own business and put a lot of money into that, and suggests that the publicity has spoiled his business, that he has liquidated his children’s college fund, and is behind on his bills.

        He says he “could” owe 125,000 and that his lawyer (a prominent Republican with an honorable and distinguished background) is giving him a discount.

        Some poster in this thread said he was going to get a second job to contribute. I know from posting here a while that many people are of modest means, but committed patriots.

        I am skeptical, and I could be wrong in my skepticism.

        Why can’t a man of means show documentation of his financial status before asking the landscaper or the car salesman to help him out?

            I don’t know if Barret is reliable, although the information he alleges suggests that Caputo has the company of high-flying wheelers and dealers for whom $125,000 is a petty amount.

            Caputo forcefully stated that he advised that NOBODY work on a Republican campaign forever. Not just Caputo, EVERYBODY should not work on a Republican campaign.

            In May of 2018, 6 months before we learn if MAGA will continue or not, that is an extraordinary thing to say. It’s almost as if Caputo doesn’t want MAGA to continue.

            I am going on memory here, but I believe Caputo has stated he is close friends with Manafort, who might very well have been a plant in the Trump campaign. We don’t know if that is true or not, but things suggest it might be true.

            People are very susceptible to the puppies and kittens appeal, and the usual strategy of that type of appeal is to make people not even question the validity of the appeal.

            My skepticism might very well be entirely misplaced, but if it is not then it is important to find out what downside for MAGA might be in the request for money, possible “branding” and possible self-promotion.

    • Tonawanda, Michael Caputo ran Carl Paladino’s campaign for NYS Governor, while I was still living there and active in state politics.
      It’s not that hard to check him out; his life is pretty much an open book.
      I have no idea what he is doing now, other than being interviewed on cable news networks and political consultant.
      I doubt he is working in the Buffalo neighborhood since there are next to zero jobs in upstate New York and I don’t think he lives in an elite neighborhood….but….I’ve wondered what the real motive is…..

        East Aurora IS an exclusive town, very tightly wired by wealthy people.

        Caputo runs his own “consulting” firm, and those things usually do not deal in small contracts, especially when the “consultant” is friends with powerful string pullers.

        Paladino has two or thee HUNDRED million dollars, and is very close friends with Caputo. (Paladino’s daughter is married into a family with many BILLIONS of dollars).

        Caputos very close friend Lorigo runs the Conservative party in Erie County and runs his own law firm. In Erie County the Conservative party is highly valued and sought after by everyone regardless of party or political philosophy. Many people are very friendly with Lorigo.

        125,000 is chump change to Paladino, and maybe even Lorigo. Do they have anything to do with raising money from the woman who is a hostess in a restaurant or a guy who fixes your car?

        Maybe it is the “woe is me give me money” approach which unsettles me.

        And I ask again, does anyone know if this man really cannot pay his own bills?

    I don’t know Michael Caputo’s financial health, he says he is selling his house – where he moved to be close to his elderly father – to move to a big city to make a bigger salary to afford his legal bills.

    I do know that General Flynn served our country honorably for over 33 years and was not on the take, so I’m confident that he has limited ability to absorb the financial strain of never-ending legal bills.

    That’s where my heart is, with General Flynn. I personally believe that Flynn was instrumental in convincing President Trump to run for President. I believe he was among the Generals and Admirals and other patriots in government that did not allow Obama & Hillary to steal the 2016 election.

    I know there are people who think that Mueller is really a super secret white hat. I don’t know what it will take for them to see the real damage that Mueller and Rosenstein are inflicting on innocent people and this country in an effort to get rid of our President. It’s a chilling effect to discourage anyone to work for President Trump ever again.

    I’m a Godly person and I pray every single day, but I am human and I want some of the people involved in this witch hunt and this attempted coup to swing from the gallows.

    LOVE the pic of the little ant superman… and from what I’ve seen of those guys, it’s not even an exaggeration.

    So anyway, a question about Caputo, and sorry if I’ve missed the answer to this somewhere: Has he even been ACCUSED of anything? Or are they just questioning and hammering him and implying that he MIGHT be accused of something if he isn’t careful? In other words, he’s being harassed for the grave crime of being a Trump aide and supporter. Right?

    For former Congressman Steve Stockman who fought to hold Lois Lerner accountable and just got remanded into custody!! even before judgment is final. The government wants to keep him quiet and unable to raise funds for appeal.
