Sometime in November, Michael Caputo becomes a senior adviser to the Trump campaign.

Caputo had previously worked for the Reagan administration and George H.W. Bush campaign, the U.S. Agency for International Development, a PR firm in Russia, another firm in Russia where he was hired to improve Putin’s image in the United States, and a political campaign in Ukraine encouraged by Putin.

In 2012, Michael Caputo also admitted, seemingly by accident, to have worked for the Kremlin directly.
