A former campaign adviser to President Trump said the ongoing federal probe into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia has taken such a financial toll on him that he's had to liquidate his children's college fund to pay for legal counsel. "It's very expensive and nobody's called me and offered to help," Michael Caputo, who worked in the Trump campaign’s communications department, told The Washington Examiner. "The problem is, it's very specialized representation, so it takes a certain type of attorney, and they're quite competent. And you'll pay for competency," he continued. Caputo said he has hired a New York-based attorney.
