A former Trump campaign aide claimed late Monday that a second government “informant” approached the Trump campaign.

Michael Caputo told Fox News the individual came to him and allegedly tried to plant themselves in the campaign.

“The FBI is not the only Obama agency who came at the campaign,” Caputo said on “The Ingraham Angle.”

“I know because they came at me,” he continued. “And I’m looking for clearance from my attorney to reveal this to the public.”

Caputo did not elaborate further.
