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

Former Trump Aide Says He Was Having A Former Trump campaign aide backtracks on Mueller: 'I'm going to cooperate'
Lindsey Cook | 10 March, 2018, 01:44

Late Monday afternoon, we were treated to a series of weird interviews on almost every major cable television channel except Fox when a colorful character named Sam Nunberg, a former personal and political aide to Donald Trump, took to the airwaves to denounce a grand jury subpoena he received compelling the production of documents and live testimony.

Relative to the restrained comments or flat-out silence of other witnesses in Mueller's investigation, Nunberg's interviews were provocative.

"He believes they wanted to put him in the box so he would provide testimonial evidence against one Roger Stone who, again, remains one of the longest-serving and advisers and political fixers for Donald Trump", Melber said. When Tur changed gears to ask if Mueller's investigators "have something on the president", Nunberg was helpful.

Speaking to MSNBC, Nunberg said: "I think it would be amusing if they arrested me".

Nunberg also said that had Trump not won the Republican primary, "he was probably going to endorse Hillary Clinton". "Why do I have to spend 80 hours going over my emails" with former Trump adviser Steve Bannon and Trump associate Roger Stone. "I have a life". First, the Washington Post reported that Nunberg was not going to comply with the subpoena, and that he would not appear before the Grand Jury, scheduled on Friday. Basu and Lauren Meier typed up highlights from Nunberg's CNN interview.

"But they were "not helpful in terms of providing viewers with information of substance" and "causes credibility problems" for networks that went all-in on a questionable source".

The line of questioning, Nunberg told MSNBC anchor Katy Tur, "insinuated to me that [Trump] may have done something, and he may very well have". And Trump, by extension, is not smart enough. "He's getting indicted. At least Jared [Kushner], maybe Trump", he said, declining to elaborate on what charges he thought either might face.

By 8:30 p.m. Eastern Time Monday night, Nunberg backtracked, telling the Associated Press that he was likely "going to end up cooperating" with Mueller and the grand jury subpoena.

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. He campaigned his ass off. Mueller to force him to do so, proclaiming at least three times, "Let him arrest me!"

He told the Post that despite his suspicions, "the Russians and Trump did not collude".

Mueller has been investigating Cohen's participation in a possible deal to build a Trump-branded skyscraper in Moscow in late 2015 and early 2016 with a longtime Trump business partner with a shady past, Felix Sater. I don't know what it is. Some people are disgusted with the current administration's ties to Russian Federation, and other supporters on websites such as Reddit and Facebook say the Russian Federation case is simply proof of the deep state agenda against President Trump; However, in what has been an interesting and long case, Mueller has made several breakthroughs that have led to charges being officially filed against some of President Trump's former aides and advisers. He just doesn't know what. However, Nunberg has remained close to many in Trump's orbit.
