Caputo claims Federal Bureau of Investigation informant approached him to offer Clinton dirt

Giuliani: 'I doubt' Trump knew Roger Stone met with Russian during 2016 campaign | TheHill

The Stone meeting is at least the second instance of a Trump campaign ally meeting with a Russian who promised damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

Letters to the House Intelligence Committee outline the contact.

But according to what the Russian calling himself Henry Greenberg - whom the Moscow Times has described as a "con man" whose real name is Gennady Vostretsov - told The Post, there was a third man at the meeting, a Ukranian national he identified only as "Alexei".

The letters obtained by The Associated Press and written by Stone and Caputo's lawyers say that, in late May 2016, Caputo received a call from his Russian business partner introducing him to Greenberg, who claimed he had information about Clinton that he wanted to share with the campaign.

Stone and Manafort in the 1970s started a political consulting firm together, as The Post has also reported, which specialized in representing dictators such as the Philippines Ferdinand Marcos, and other notorious human rights violators including African guerilla warlord Jonas Savimbi. Stone told Mr. Greenberg that Donald Trump would never buy information either.

"It's dubious to think he would take time off from his long career as an Federal Bureau of Investigation informant to come meet with us of his own accord", Caputo said.

Meanwhile, Trump's best and brightest took to the airwaves on Sunday morning to defend Stone. "You don't understand Donald Trump", Stone said he told the man.

Stone's 2016 meeting is now being investigated by Mueller and his team - and it certainly isn't the only Russian meeting under consideration. He also told the paper he would tell the DOJ inspector general about the meeting, as well.

Mysteries still remain about Donald Trump associate Roger Stone's new admission that he met with a Russian offering dirt on Hillary Clinton, and those questions may lead to Paul Manafort.

Caputo and Stone exchanged text messages after the meeting, according to the Post.

Last year Stone denied having any contact with Russian Federation during the campaign, a story that has been shifting ever since. "This led to nothing", Giuliani said.

Caputo said he became suspicious of Greenberg after an interview with the Office of Special Counsel in May. But Mueller's team did. The Florida meeting happened two months before federal law enforcement officials say they opened their counterintelligence operation targeting Russia's election meddling.

The Washington Post first reported Stone's new admission of his Russian contact - a contact he failed to mention in his sworn testimony because, he claims, he "forgot", according the Post report.
