Caputo: If "Coffee Boy" Papadopoulos Wore A Wire, All Mueller Would Learn Is Drink Orders


In an interview on CNN's 'New Day' on Tuesday morning, former Trump campaign adviser Michael Caputo downplays the guilty plea from Trump foreign policy staffer George Papadopoulos, saying that he had "never heard" of him. He also says that Papadopoulos was so low ranking on the campaign that he was a "coffee boy."

MICHAEL CAPUTO: I read about it in the newspaper like everyone else did. In fact, I never heard of Papadopoulos. He never showed up at Trump Tower, never had any interactions with any of the campaign leaders around me.

The leaders of the Washington office of the campaign didn't even know who he was until his name appeared in the press. He was the coffee boy. You might have called him a foreign policy analyst, but in fact, if he was going to wear a wire, all we would know now is whether he preferred a caramel macchiato or a regular American coffee, in conversations with his barrister friend.

He had nothing to do with the campaign, and all this contact with alleged Russians is something completely beyond the scope of his volunteer duties.
