May 2016: Trump advisor Roger Stone met with Russian national Henry Greenberg [AKA Henry Oknyansky] who offered dirt on Hillary Clinton for $2M. Henry's friend "Alexei" [who has since moved back to Ukraine] conducted the meeting [setup by Caputo].
Roger Stone & Michael Caputo, who both lied to congressional investigators by not disclosing the meeting with Russian Henry Greenberg & his offer of dirt on Hillary Clinton, now laughably claim the meeting [2 months before FBI's Trump-Russia probe began] was an FBI sting.
Apr 2017, Roger Stone : “I didn’t talk to anybody who was identifiably Russian during the two-year run-up to this campaign."
May 2016, Michael Caputo to Stone: “How crazy is the Russian [Henry Greenberg, who met with Stone & spoke with a heavy Russian accent]?”
Roger Stone met with the Russian a few weeks after Trump foreign policy adviser Papadopoulos was told in London that the Russians had dirt on Clinton – and 2 weeks before Don Jr met in Trump Tower with a Russian informant promising dirt on Clinton.
Excellent background THREAD by @ZarinaZabrisky on ex-Trump campaign aide & longtime Roger Stone associate, Michael Caputo, who's fluent in Russian and from 1994-1999 lived in Moscow where he “worked very closely with Yeltsin's Kremlin & the Duma.”
Recall on May 2, 2018, after ex-Trump campaign aide & longtime Roger Stone protégé Michael Caputo's interview by special counsel investigators: "Mueller's team knows what they're aiming at and are deadly accurate."
Jul 2017, Ex-Trump aide & longtime Stone protégé Michael Caputo: "I told the House Intel Cmte that I had no contact w/ Russians...I never heard the word 'Russia' during the campaign & we did not use Russian dressing." Oops.

Aug 2016: FBI warned the Trump campaign that Russia would try to spy on/infiltrate the campaign & urged them to alert the FBI of any overtures. By then, 9+ Trump officials [including Stone & Caputo] had Russian contacts. NONE were reported to FBI.
"If Roger Stone & Michael Caputo thought that the Russian offering dirt on Clinton was an FBI setup, they would have shouted it from the rooftops during their congressional hearings [I paraphrase]." -@glennkirschner2, former federal prosecutor
