Trump campaign official Michael Caputo has said that he "never once" spoke to anyone about the possibility of receiving help from the Russian government to get Donald Trump elected.

Mr Caputo, who served as one of Mr Trump's communications advisers during the campaign, wrote in his opening statement to a congressional committee that he "never spoke about his campaign with anyone remotely associated with the Russian government".

"At no time did I ever talk about Russian contacts with any member of the campaign. I certainly did not hear talk of collusion with Russia or any foreign nation," he wrote to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, which is conducting an investigation into whether Trump campaign officials colluded with Russian officials.
