Ex-Trump Campaign Staffer Sam Nunberg Dared Robert Mueller to Arrest Him

The grand jury investigating alleged collusion between Russian Federation and Donald Trump's presidential campaign has sent a witness a subpoena seeking all documents involving the president and a host of his closest advisers, according to a copy of the subpoena received by former adviser Sam Nunberg and reviewed by NBC News.

Former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg had a surreal day Monday.

"I think it would be really, really amusing if they wanted to arrest me because I don't want to spend 80 hours going over emails", he told U.S. media.

Nunberg, who was sacked twice from Trump's campaign - once in 2014 and again in 2015 - also called Trump an "idiot" on CNN and suggested that Mueller might have incriminating information about the president.

The special counsel's investigation is now one of several probes looking into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and whether Trump campaign associates have any ties with Russians.

During Monday's interviews, Nunberg repeatedly attacked Sanders, and at one point, appeared to threaten her during his interview on MSNBC saying, "And I'm warning her, by the way, to shut her mouth".

During Monday's interviews, Nunberg oscillated between saying Trump hadn't colluded and suggesting he might have had some arrangement with Russian Federation.

And despite Mueller's "witch hunt", despite Putin's smarts and Trump's apparent lack thereof, Nunberg said he still has a amusing feeling Trump did "something" shady during the 2016 election. For most Americans, Mueller is an unknown individual who was all of a sudden thrust into the spotlight, but Mueller is known by those in American law and politics as a man with a rigid sense of right and wrong who does not align himself with a political party, confirmed CNN in a short bio-documentary. According to Mueller's indictment of Russian operatives, the Russian influence campaign began when Nunberg's influence on Trump was at its nadir. "And there is nobody who hates him more than me".

Speaking to the Post, Nunberg dared Mueller to act if he refused to appear before a grand jury on Friday.

"Donald Trump did not collude with the Russians".

Colbert went on to quip about the extent of Nunberg's tirade.

McDougal spoke about Nunberg to The Washington Post on Monday, advising him, "If you don't want to testify, don't go on television and do these teaser interviews". Minutes later, he called into CNN, where Gloria Borger interviewed him.

On MSNBC with Katy Tur, Nunberg raised eyebrows by suggesting that some amount of impropriety may have happened during the campaign. Nunberg told Tur that his lawyer is "probably going to dump me", prompting Tur to ask, "Are you ready to go to jail?"

"Mr. Stone appears to be a person at the center of the worldwide intrigue, as you mentioned, the contact with Wikileaks allegedly, which is believed to be by Bob Mueller of investigative interest of a Russian plot that's already been charged in USA federal court", Melber said.

"In many cases - including this one, I think journalists can do better", Seaman wrote. I'm not going to spend 40 hours going over emails.

"If it were me", Tapper replied, "I would".
