In an abrupt reversal of previous statements, including under sworn testimony, former Trump campaign aide Michael Caputo is now admitting that he did knowingly have contact with a Russian offering dirt on Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign.

In a Tuesday morning interview with CNN's John Berman, Caputo said that he previously "did not recall" his interactions with the Russian Henry Greenberg—despite a follow-up text conversation with Trump confidant Roger Stone about the meeting—and tried to shift the conversation by alleging that Greenberg was an undercover FBI agent.

At the time, Caputo had set up the meeting between Stone and Greenberg in May 2016.
