Trump once hinted at the fact that he taped his conversations with former FBI Director James Comey, which was nothing more than a move of intimidation that backfired. Comey’s response to Trump’s idle threat was “Lordy, I hope there are tapes.”
Of course, we all echoed that plea and it appears Special Counsel Robert Mueller went looking for them as well. As we all knew, the tapes don’t exist, but Mueller did find something else that has to have Trump on edge: Text messages, which Mueller is now in possession of.
After Mueller interviewed Michael Caputo, who was adamantly opposed to the investigation but now suddenly cooperating, he went on cable news and spoke about the evidence Mueller seems to already have.
“They have all the documents that were produced,” Caputo told Fox News Thursday. “They’ve got further documentation from people who worked outside the campaign — their emails, their texts. They have the entire campaign’s texts.”
While the motive for the interview with Caputo is still unclear, we know he worked for the Trump campaign in the summer of 2016 right before an abrupt resignation. His comment about the text messages from the entire campaign is very revealing and worth more attention than his interview.
It’s possible that Mueller has compiled enough evidence to have a judge sign off on the seizure of the campaign’s phone records or maybe even their cell phones. The fact that Mueller now has the entire campaign’s text records is huge because it’s not limited to one person. This means Mueller had to have evidence that there’s possibly a unifying crime or conspiracy throughout the entire team. Caputo just gave away the fact that Mueller has the entire campaign team on the hook for conspiracy. He’s just dotting his I’s and crossing his t’s. Before we know it he’ll be closing this case and arresting those members who haven’t already cut a deal.
