Buffalo, N.Y. (WBEN) - During an appearance on CNN's New Day Tuesday morning, Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-Ca) made a new accusation against Political consultant and WBEN Contributor Michael Caputo.

"Let's remember that Michael Caputo has made his entire professional career about being a spin doctor" said Speier.  He is a bit player in the whole issue that relates to [President] Trump and his campaign organization in collusion with the Russians and he is trying to make himself a primary star of it".

Speier went on to say that she was not able to attend Friday's House Intelligence Committee hearing due to a speech and a Town Hall meeting.  "His transcript has yet to be developed, but from what I understand, Mr. Caputo has a number of questions that he has to answer because it appears that he may have actually lied".    

Michael Caputo heard the interview while hosting the Sandy Beach Show on WBEN Tuesday.  "Gotcha Jackie Speier, gotcha, that's not Congress where you called me a liar".  Caputo said members of Congress are only protected from liability when pursuing Congressional duties.  "You're on Live television calling me a liar?  Lady, you better lawyer up. I'm going to sue you" said Caputo.  "You're irresponsible and a dullard and you're going to pay for my attorneys because I'm coming after you". 

Asked for an update on the Russia investigation, Speier said the committee is a long way from making any conclusions.  She expect interviews with witnesses to take another 3 to 4 months.
