Former Trump Aide Refuses Mueller Subpoena

Nunberg is not necessarily the most reliable narrator.

TheDaily Beast reported that several of Nunberg's friends were concerned he had been drinking before the interviews. Here are the highlights.

"I believe the president remains in his crosshair", he said.

"I don't know what he is looking into", he told CNN. Nunberg asked while speaking via telephone with CNN's Jake Tapper.

"I mean I despise Corey, why would I communicate with him?"

At the end of the interview with Tapper, Nunberg appeared to revel in his defiant posture towards the special prosecutor, boasting: "I'm definitely the first person to do this, that I'm not cooperating".

U.S. intelligence have said those documents were illicitly obtained by or on behalf of the Russian government. "I would cooperate were it me, but, you know, I'm a different breed of cat".

He said Monday that the special counsel has asked for records of his conversations with other key players in the Trump campaign. He also said that he thought Mueller "has enough" on Trump without his testimony.

Here's CNN's Erin Burnett telling former Trump aide Sam Nunberg that she can smell alcohol on his breath.

TUR: Why do you think that?

Nunberg said he had already spoken with investigators for five-and-a- half hours last month and he wasn't going back in.

Later during the campaign, Trump sued Nunberg for $10 million, accusing him of breaching a confidentiality agreement. He then supported Ted Cruz's campaign for the Republican nomination.

Anyone subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury has the right to refuse to answer questions to avoid self-incrimination.

"I think it would be amusing if they arrested me. Do you think I'm going to jail?" he asked the room as MSNBC host Ari Melber closed out the segment. "Just my opinion. Because it sounds like pain, but he is the special counsel and he does have the long arm of the law".

"Let him arrest me", Nunberg told the Post, adding that he meant to rip up the subpoena on live television.

Mr Nunberg, who worked on the campaign during 2015, said collecting emails and other communications he had with other key Trump advisors - particularly Steve Bannon and Roger Stone - was too much trouble and he would not do it. "Give me a break".

Robert Mueller's investigation arose in part from the findings of USA intelligence agencies that Russian Federation had meddled in the election and that its goals eventually included aiding Mr Trump, who won a surprise victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton. He doesn't need me to start giving him information on Stone and Bannon.
