Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Stone's testimony "appears inaccurate or deliberately misleading" and that the offer to Caputo "could not plausibly have escaped his recollection.
I certainly didn't know about it. It's news to me," he said.
Greenberg, who the Post said sometimes went by the name Henry Oknyansky, had difficulties with the American immigration system, and spent two years in the custody of immigration services before returning to Russia.
In court filings related to his immigration status cited by Stone and Caputo, Greenberg claimed that he worked as an FBI informant for 17 years.

However, Greenberg denied he was acting on the FBI's behalf when he met with Stone, according to the Post, and the court filing the newspaper obtained said his work with the FBI halted sometime after The letters from the two political operatives' lawyers mention a text exchange after the meeting with Greenberg and say Stone's impression was that the meetup had been a waste of time and he viewed Greenberg as "a nut.
Caputo then texted, "The Russian way.
Anything at all interesting? The meeting with Stone reportedly took place a few weeks after former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos was told about Russian dirt on Hillary Clinton and two weeks before senior members of the Trump campaign met with Russian nationals -- including a lawyer with ties to the Kremlin -- in Trump Tower.
Greenberg initially denied Stone's account of the meeting but later changed his story, giving the Post a brief description of the meeting that matched Stone's depiction in part. While Stone told the Post that Greenberg was alone for the meeting, Greenberg relayed that he was accompanied by a Ukrainian man only identified as Alexei.
Greenberg told the Post that Alexei was fired from the Clinton Foundation.

He denied her claims that they ever had sex as the media took up his cause. Lewinsky became a national punchline, her last name slang for oral sex. All the great white male liberals of late night and elsewhere crucified her while depicting a problematic man with a track record as the real victim — even as his own White House smeared Lewinsky as an unstable slut and a stalker.
Is it any wonder the media played along? Lip-biting is often a signature attack in sexual assault and rape: Forty years later, she cries as she relives this. When Myers came back with her scoop, NBC execs refused to air it. It was only after the late Tim Russert fought hard for the piece to air, himself calling Broaddrick extremely credible, that the network caved.
Even then, the interview was presented as an old and unprovable allegation. And all these years on, incredibly, Clinton still has his defenders, among them well-educated liberal women who, one suspects, really do know better.
Jill Abramson, former executive editor of the New York Times, appears in the documentary mainly to discredit these claims and these women.
Broaddrick, a retired nurse, says she never planned to speak publicly again until one fateful day in Novemberwhen presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took to Twitter. Pain and outrage, one would think, would be the natural response. If the Democrats are smart, this documentary will be the end of the Clinton machine.
Hopefully, it will move much of the mainstream media to reassess what stories are told, how and by whom. It will provoke the most uncomfortable acknowledgment that the man the party has loved and deified for his public policies is, in fact, a man with no morals, no character and, most damningly, never to be believed.
