Michael Caputo, a former Trump campaign aide, is amending his congressional testimony to include meeting with a Russian figure who allegedly tried to sell him information on Hillary Clinton.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is examining this previously undisclosed meeting. Caputo and Roger Stone did not previously disclose this contact in their interviews with the Congressional committee.

Caputo issued a statement, saying he believes a longtime FBI informant approached him and Roger Stone, a Donald Trump confidante, to sell negative information on Clinton. His statement reads:

The investigation of "Henry Greenberg" in two countries exposed yet another FBI attempt to compromise the Donald Trump for President campaign - this time by a Russian violent criminal in the United States illegally.

In late may 2016, a man calling himself Henry Greenberg contacted Trump advisors Michael Caputo and Roger Stone offering negative information on Hillary Clinton. Both Stone and Caputo refused Greenberg's offer, but in his May 2, 2018 interview with the Office of Special Counsel, Caputo noted the Mueller team knew far more than he did about the Greenberg approach. This set off alarms.

"After my OSC interview, I deployed the crowdfunding resources of CaputoLegalFund.com to investigate Henry Greenberg in the United States and Russia," Caputo said. "We discovered very quickly that this shady character has a long career as an FBI informant."

The inquiry discovered "Henry Greenberg" is actually an alias; his legal name is Gennadiy Vasilievich Vostretsov. The 59 year old Russian citizen has assumed several names to avoid scrutiny: Vostretsov has a lifelong history of violent criminal activity in Russia and the United States. 

By his own sworn admission, Vostretsov has been an informant for the Federal Bureau of Investigations for at least 17 years. 

“I want to know who at James Comey’s FBI thought it was a good idea to direct a violent international criminal in our country illegally to contact my family and Stone’s family,” Caputo said. 

Inside the Greenberg Dossier, readers will find irrefutable proof that another FBI informant contacted advisors to presidential candidate Donald J. Trump in summer 2016, offering information on Hillary Clinton.

The Greenberg Dossier can be reviewed at DemocratDossier.org [democratdossier.org], a new Web site devoted to exposing key players advancing the bogus Russia investigation.
