Ex-Trump aide Nunberg says he will refuse subpoena in Russian Federation probe

Mar 6, 2018

Nunberg said Mueller’s questioning suggested he was looking into stories about the president and prostitutes when Trump took his Miss Universe pageant to Moscow in 2013.

Nunberg, who was no longer working for the campaign at the time of the meeting, said Trump is not telling the truth when he says he had no knowledge of that meeting throughout the campaign.

During an interview on CNN, Nunberg said he was “not a fan of Trump”, but that he continues to have a close relationship with Stone, whom he calls his mentor, and whom he believes has become a target in the investigation.

“The Russians and Trump did not collude”, Nunberg said. I mean, the whole question Mueller is investigating is how Russian Federation sought to influence the 2016 election in Trump’s favor and whether anyone in his campaign colluded with them to so it.

She said she had told them she had nothing to offer, and was alarmed that “they kept pushing me to say something to save myself”. He added, “Trump may have very well done something during the election. I don’t know what it is.” .

That seems to directly contradict the exchange Nunberg had with CNN’s Jake Tapper earlier Monday that set off the initial scrum. White House officials were also watching and were stunned by his freewheeling interviews. In other words, they can immunize him from criminal liability.

The only ways to avoid a grand jury subpoena are invoking the Constitutional right to avoid self-incrimination or claiming attorney-client or executive privilege, but these are not always successful.

She introduced two service members whom she said she met at a recent trip to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, saying that one of the reasons they were at the briefing was to put “extra encouragement” on Shulkin “to make sure we’re doing everything we can for veterans”.

He said he had been interviewed by the team of Mr Mueller for more than five hours late last month.

“It is not an easy thing to do”, McDougal said. Carter Page? Are you kidding me? I don’t know what it is, and perhaps I’m wrong.

Ex-Trump aide, Sam Nunberg, was sacked from the campaign in 2015.

Nunberg also talked with print outlets, including the New York Times and Bloomberg. But he cant tell the grand Jury to get lost.

“I’m not spending 80 hours going over my emails with Roger Stone and Steve Bannon and producing them”, Nunberg told the paper. That’s consistent with his escalating accusations and attacks against Donald Trump. Russian Federation has denied the allegations and Trump has said there was no collusion between Moscow and his campaign.

“I suspect that they suspect something about him…” “Putin is too smart to collude with Donald Trump”.

In response to the Nunberg news, Stone told Fox News he expected Mueller to eventually ask for similar correspondence, but that he had “no knowledge or involvement” in any collusion with Russian Federation.

Sam Nunberg called reporters and TV news programs on Monday and said live that he’d gotten a grand jury subpoena as part of Mueller’s investigation asking for communications with other people in the Trump orbit – but that he won’t comply.

But he soon changed his plans.

McDougal’s case is decades old now, though it is a useful parallel, given Nunberg’s threat Monday. He also told CNN’s Gloria Borger: “Screw that”.

Nunberg found the Trump-Russia collusion narrative “the biggest joke” and was generally dismissive of Trump as a meaningful political mind. “I can’t explain it unless you were in there”.

Nunberg conducted a number of media interviews, including with MSNBC and CNN. “It’s a witch hunt and I’m not going to cooperate”. Which Jake, um, does not give; “If it were me, I would”, he responded.
