You Know Mueller Can Arrest You, Right?

You Know Mueller Can Arrest You, Right?

In 2016, Trump sued Nunberg for $10 million for allegedly leaking confidential campaign information to the press.

By 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time Monday night, Nunberg backtracked, telling the Associated Press that he was likely "going to end up cooperating" with Mueller and the grand jury subpoena.

Mueller has charged several Trump associates and more than a dozen Russians.

Former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg was on cable news more often than Big Pharma ads, talking - and talking and talking and talking - about how he plans to thumb his nose at a subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

UPDATE: March 5, 2018, 3:16 p.m. PST Nunberg later appeared on NY1 where he called Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders a "joke" and "fat slob".

The interview sparked concern online Mr Nunberg appeared under "severe mental distress". Nunberg said he answered "no" to all three questions.

It's thus unclear how much Nunberg would know about the inner workings of the Trump campaign or the White House, where he never worked. At the end of his interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, Nunberg asked whether the TV anchor thought he should instead cooperate with Mueller.

Last year, Trump reportedly crafted a fake statement about Russian adoptions to explain away the Trump Tower meeting, in the name of his son Donald Trump Jr., on Air Force One.

"I think that [Trump] may have done something during the election, but I don't know that for sure", Nunberg said on MSNBC.

He also said he believed Carter Page, a Trump campaign adviser, did collude with Russians.

"They want me over at the grand jury".

"I believe Carter Page was colluding with the Russians", Nunberg said, adding later, "I think that Carter Page is a weird dude I don't think he should have been involved in that campaign".

He later told CNN of Trump: "Granted, Donald Trump caused this, because he's an idiot".

He told MSNBC that he would not be complying with the subpoena.

Nunberg accused former Trump campaign foreign policy advisor Carter Page of colluding with Russian Federation.

In one of his interviews with MSNBC, Nunberg stated that he had no problem testifying, and the only reason for defying the subpoena was because he does not want to go through an "80-hour" long session of checking his e-mails with former colleagues.

"You can't help but feel for these people who really not only are in legal trouble but also the financial costs, and here you've got a billionaire who they've all fallen on the ground for", Scarborough said. They include Trump; departing White House communications director Hope Hicks; former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski; the president's former chief political strategist Steve Bannon; Trump's longtime bodyguard, Keith Schiller; former Trump Organization lawyer Michael Cohen; and Roger Stone, a longtime confidant and occasional adviser to Trump.

Burnett began the interview by pointing out that White House sources had alleged Nunberg was "drunk or off [his] meds", which he denied.
