HHS spokesman Caputo to take medical leave after reportedly accusing CDC officials of plotting against Trump
- Michael Caputo, a former Trump campaign official who took over as top spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services earlier this year, will take a 60-day leave of absence, HHS announced Wednesday.
- The move comes after Caputo reportedly said in a now-deleted video posted Sunday on his personal Facebook page that scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were engaged in “sedition” against President Donald Trump.
- HHS also announced that Paul Alexander, an advisor to Caputo who was working for the agency on a temporary basis, “will be leaving the department.”
Caputo might be the rare member of the 4th Reich to leave the Administration in exactly the same condition as he arrived.
Sixty days off means he will return after the election, if he returns at all.
