Who is Sam Nunberg?

The subpoena requests communications from President Trump dating back to November 2015 The subpoena requests communications from President Trump dating back to November 2015

Sam Nunberg, who helped launch Donald Trump's presidential campaign in 2015, embarked on a surreal, daylong media blitz in which he defiantly dared special counsel Robert Mueller to arrest him, called the president "stupid" and suggested Trump colluded with Russian Federation to undermine the 2016 election.

After boasting to The Washington Post his refusal to testify before a grand jury as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, Nunberg called into CNN accusing his former colleagues of conspiring with the Kremlin. "I'm just trying to get this done so I can then get back to try to have a life and work on my job".

Former Trump aide Sam Nunberg went on a wild whirlwind tour of media outlets Monday, vowing to defy special counsel Robert Mueller's subpoena and attacking former and current members of Trump's team, including Sarah Huckabee Sanders and former campaign director Corey Lewandowski.

"I think we've pretty much explored that to death", Conaway said when asked if the panel had fully investigated the circumstances around the Trump Tower meeting.

Nunberg dismissed Sanders' response later during an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, saying he didn't "want to hear from what's-her-name today attacking me".

The interviews fueled speculation that Nunberg's comments could have been the result of alcohol or drugs.

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

NUNBERG: I can't explain that unless you were in there. "He was a name on a list", Nunberg said.




Roger StoneRoger Stone is a former adviser to president Trump's presidential campaign, and although he left the campaign at the end of 2015, he has said he remained "a confidant to the President".

"It was clear Nunberg was under plenty of pressure", the Washington Post's Aaron Blake writes this morning. Well, I'd like to have a dime or even a nickel for every person who has had a cocktail before appearing on TV.

"I think they may... I think that he may have done something during the election, but I don't know that for sure".

In an interview on CNN, he said he believed Mueller's team wanted specifics about Stone, but that he wouldn't talk about him because he was like a mentor. "The idea that we were colluding with the Russians, give me a break".

Nunberg said he had not had a drink and had only taken his medication ― antidepressants ― earlier Monday.

Nunberg said that he was refusing the special counsel "because what they sent me was absolutely ridiculous".

Nunberg told CNN that his impression is that Mueller "thinks that Trump is the Manchurian Candidate", but he said he doesn't agree with that assessment.
