'Morning Joe' Jokes About Trump And STDs: 'Maybe That's Why They Raided His Doctor's Office'

Michael Caputo, a former communications adviser to the Trump campaign, met with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team on Wednesday as well as the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday as part of both ongoing Russian Federation investigations, CBS News' Jacqueline Alemany confirms.

Separately, Giuliani told Bloomberg News that Trump's legal team "would be inclined" to allow Special Counsel Robert Mueller to interview the president. "I want to know who is paying for the spies' work and coordinating this attack on President Donald Trump", Caputo said.

"There hasn't been a demand for any documents", Vacco said, noting that the special counsel first reached out about Caputo's time with the Trump campaign last month. "The special counsel is spearfishing". The questions were based on topics that Mueller's team had said they wanted to discuss with Trump.

Caputo lived and worked in Russia in the 1990s and later did business with Russian companies, including Gazprom, the Kremlin-controlled energy giant.

Mueller has charged 22 people and entities to date, including Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates.

On Wednesday, executive vice president Stephen Jones said there was no timeline on when Witten would make a decision. As it stands, Witten is the franchise leader in games played (239), receptions (1,152) and receiving yards (12,448).

Both Trump and Moscow deny any wrongdoing, and the president has called the investigation a political witch hunt.

Caputo accused members of the Senate Intelligence Committee of working together and contributing to the "swamp" - a term often used by President Trump to describe the bureaucracy in Washington, D.C. He was also interviewed previous year by the House Intelligence Committee.

"Your investigation and others into the allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Russian Federation are costing my family a great deal of money - more than $125,000 - and making a visceral impact on my children", Caputo said in a prepared statement that he delivered at the end of the Senate interview, which was provided to CNN.

Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday that President Donald Trump could sit down with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, but only for several hours, according to the Washington Post's Robert Costa. Oh, I see. You have made a made up, phony crime, Collusion, that never existed, and an investigation begun with illegally leaked classified information.
