How Sam Nunberg took over cable news with his Mueller ranting

Adjust Comment Print

Nunberg ranted about how he had no intention of complying with a subpoena, which ordered him to testify before a grand jury investigating Russia's alleged hacking of the 2016 elections.

The former aide left Trump's campaign in the summer of 2015, when racist Facebook posts on his account from the past were dug up, Politico reports.

Nonetheless, Sam Nunberg did not do Donald Trump any favors yesterday, but he also didn't provide any information that I think Mueller is going to use in his investigation. 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.

"Why do I have to do it?"

In the space of just a few hours, Nunberg lit up on MSNBC, CNN, even the Washington Post, and then back to CNN. He said they acted professionally and that he was "very impressed by them" but that "what I'm not doing is following up with them".

Over the weekend witnesses have been issued with a subpoena demanding they turn over all documents related to United States President Donald Trump and his advisors. "I would tell him that he's had his fun, now put on your big-boy trousers, shut up and hire a lawyer", he said.

Nunberg was sacked from the Trump campaign in 2015 and went on to endorse Sen.

He later contradicted himself on collusion and suggested that Trump may have had some dealings with the Russians.

Neowin spotted last month that Microsoft wants to offer this "S Mode" on PCs running Windows 10 Home, Enterprise, and Pro. Microsoft released the second Windows 10 "Redstone 5" test build to those in the Skip Ahead ring on March 7.

Nunberg: [awkward pause] Besides my meds. "I think he may have done something during the election". This was decided by the grand jury who is investigating allegations of collusion with Russian Federation during the United States presidential election. "I don't think I require any protection", Stone said Tuesday.

However, Fox Business Network's Charles Gasparino claimed that Nunberg had admitted to him on Monday that he was drinking and that he would be seeking "treatment" following his grand jury appearance on Friday.

He spent the day giving a series of weird interviews, including one in which he branded White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders a "fat slob". Rather than daring the special prosecutor to throw him in jail and repeatedly asserting that he is "not cooperating", Nunberg sounded chastened and said he was diligently working to aggregate the emails the subpoena demanded.

Speaking to MSNBC, Nunberg said: "I think it would be amusing if they arrested me".

"You know what if Sarah Huckabee wants to start debasing me she's a joke, okay fine she's not attractive she's a fat slob", he said. Their president has a 33% approval rating.

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

Nunberg also said "I suspect that they suspect something about {Donald Trump]".
