Russia: Ex-aide refuses to co-operate with Mueller probe

Sam Nunberg

To be sure, we've known this since the 2016 campaign, when the cable networks goosed their ratings by providing extensive coverage of Trump's rallies.

"But this is much broader than Sam Nunberg, after he spoke about his mentor Roger Stone, the former Trump advisor, as I just mentioned, Roger then spoke out in this unusual interview with Chuck Todd, it's another interesting development in the news about the Russian Federation probe", Melber continued. Why do I have to go? Why? What's he going to do?

"They don't know what's going on", he said, speculating that Mueller would not appreciate his comments and suggesting the authorities might send police to his apartment.

He defiantly declared that he would not be complying with Mueller's subpoena requesting he appear before a grand jury and hand over any emails, telephone logs or other correspondence he had involving Trump and nine others, including former strategist Stephen Bannon, outgoing White House communications director Hope Hicks, and longtime advisor Roger Stone.

"If it were me, I would", Tapper responded, telling Nunberg: "Sometimes life and special prosecutors are not fair, I guess".

"Let him arrest me", Nunberg told The Washington Post.

Nader began cooperating with Mueller after he arrived at Dulles Airport in mid-January and was stopped, served with a subpoena and questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, these people said. They can also seek to quash it.

But she agreed that several years of good behavior and the lack of a threat to the community justified Bryant's release. Press room at the 90th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center in Los Angeles, California.

During his afternoon tirades, Nunberg detailed his interview with Mueller's investigators, mocking them for asking such questions as if he had heard Russian being spoken in Trump Tower.

"What do you think Mueller is going to do to me?" he said.

"Do you think I would communicate with Carter Page? I thought it would be amusing".

As a demonstration of everything TV news does right and does wrong, it's hard to beat the media-storm created by Sam Nunberg on Monday.

So Nunberg, like many others in Trump's orbit, is loopy. Mueller clearly believes in this case that Trump was "groomed", and then helped by the Russians to carry out their work in the White House.

But then, while Nunberg was on MSNBC's The Beat with Ari Melber, Melber asked, "What if the outcome for that is going to jail, Sam?"

The 36-year-old lawyer was booted off the Trump campaign after it was revealed that he had made racially charged social media posts about the Rev. Al Sharpton and former President Barack Obama. The Wall Street Journal reported that after Cohen wired a $130,000 payment to a porn star, Stormy Daniels, for agreeing not to discuss an alleged sexual encounter with Trump, he complained to friends that he had yet to be properly reimbursed for the expenditure.

Netanyahu: 'We Will Stop Iran'
When asked if he believed in the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Netanyahu said, "I haven't named it". The PLO recognised Israel officially in 1993, but Israel has yet to offer formal recognition of Palestine.

Prince had no formal role with the Trump campaign or transition. Reach Trump to talk about what?

Regarding Trump's pre-campaign business activities, Nunberg was unable to provide damaging information on those to Mueller's investigators.

Nunberg is perhaps the only person questioned by Mueller and his team who is openly talking about it. "He hasn't worked at the White House, so I certainly can't speak to him or the lack of knowledge that he clearly has". Providing or accepting any contribution from foreign entities in American elections is illegal.

Like most things about the Trump administration, this would be hilariously amusing if it were a performance, but instead it is a real thing that is happening, and it means that this human being was deemed A Guy Who Should Be Put In Charge of Things by Donald Trump at some point.

We all react to stress differently.

Nunberg's last interview of the day appeared to be with Olivia Nuzzi of NY magazine. His books include "TrumpNation: The Art of Being The Donald".
