Former Trump Aide Sam Nunberg Thinks Special Counsel May Have “Something” On Trump

Former top Trump aide Sam Nunberg says he will defy a Mueller subpoena and not show up for grand jury testimony because it’s a pain to pull together the information Special Counsel Robert Mueller has requested.

In an interview with The Washington Post, Nunberg said he was asked to come to appear before the grand jury on Friday.

He also admitted he was asked for any communications related to President Trump and nine other people, including departing White House communications director Hope Hicks, former White House strategist Stephen K. Bannon, Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone.

“I shouldn’t have to spend that much time,” said Nunberg. “I shouldn’t have to go to a grand jury. I’m spending a lot of money on legal fees. A lot of other people are. And granted, Donald Trump caused this because he’s an idiot.”

Nunberg told several reporters this afternoon that he believes Mueller thinks Roger Stone (Nunberg’s mentor) colluded with Julian Assange of WikiLeaks. I’m guessing that is in reference to WikiLeaks release of emails from the DNC.

“They want me to testify against Roger,” Nunberg said. “They want me to say that Roger was going around telling people he was colluding with Julian Assange.”

MSNBC’s Katy Tur directly asked him, “Do you think that they [meaning Mueller] have something on the president?”

Nunberg’s response: “I think they may. I think he may have done something during the election.”

He told CNN’s Gloria Borger, “Mueller thinks that trump is the Manchurian Candidate, and I will tell you I disagree with that.”

As I write this, Nunberg – giving yet another interview on TV – just told CNN’s Jake Tapper, “I’m not cooperating. Arrest me.”

Nunberg also told Tapper he believes Trump knew about the Trump Tower meeting Donald Trump Jr. had with Russians in June of 2016.

This was truly a stunning series of interviews.

One, you don’t just say “no” to the Special Counsel.

Two, you don’t give three wild and wooly, lengthy interviews live on CNN and MSNBC. A smart man would just shut up.
