Witnesses subpoenaed by Congress to answer questions about alleged collusion between Russia and the Trump presidential campaign now say they want to explore legal options against certain persons involved in the investigation.
Several Republicans in Congress are claiming text messages between FBI agents appear to reveal a conspiracy of players within the Justice Department who wanted to protect Hillary Clinton and find ways to go after Donald Trump and his incoming team.
Michael Caputo, a former Trump campaign aide, told The Daily Caller Wednesday a group of individuals, including himself, who were swept up in the Russia investigation and hit financially with steep legal bills and lost job opportunities are considering filing lawsuit against the federal government.
“It appears as if the FBI and Department of Justice were weaponized against the president and his associates, including me. I was informed I was unmasked and surveilled. As it turns out, colluding with Russia would have been redundant: we have become Russia, complete with our own KGB,” Caputo told TheDC.
