Former Trump Aide Says He'll Defy Mueller Subpoena

"Who's to say?" Colbert joked.

"I'm not spending 80 hours going over my emails with [former Trump adviser] Roger Stone and [former White House chief strategist] Steve Bannon and producing them", Nunberg told the Post.

Nunberg has been asked to appear before the grand jury in Washington on Friday.

Hannity said Nunberg "appears to be having a national meltdown" ever since he announced his refusal of Mueller's legally-binding invitation. He at times sounded nervous and self-doubting, openly questioning his legal fate.

The CNN anchor told Nunberg that Trump allies have told her that they believe he is "drunk or off [his] meds".

Nunberg, who was let go from the Trump team in 2015, first told The Washington Post that he was not going to cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigations into the allegations the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation to influence the election. "Roger", Nunberg told Yahoo News on Monday.

For some reason, Sam Nunberg, a former adviser to President Trump's campaign, made a decision to immolate on cable news Monday afternoon, appearing multiple times on MSNBC, CNN, and NY1, and conducting phone interviews with news organizations.

At the White House, officials quickly sought to distance the administration from Nunberg, who has not been in Trump's good graces since his firing in August 2015 over racially insensitive Facebook posts.

Nunberg told the Post he would rip up the subpoena in a planned appearance on Bloomberg TV.

"Screw that", he told Gloria Borger on CNN. "Perhaps I'm wrong, but he did something".

He also said his move wasn't to protect the President.

Sanders, however, declined to comment on whether Shulkin's conduct was consistent with the standards that President Donald Trump holds for the VA.

Despite continued animosity between him and Mr Trump over the posts, Nunberg said he would not co-operate with the "witch hunt" probe.

Ortiz himself began starting to push Wilder backwards as he himself started to land shots of substance onto the champion. Stats show that in a combined 67 fights (not counting the NC's for Ortiz), only four times was the final bell chimed.

That means tens of thousands of DACA enrollees may lose their DACA protections while they wait for their renewals to go through. Supreme Court denied the administration's unusual request to intervene, which would have leapfrogged the appeals court.

Page's comments on "Hannity" came after Nunberg gave a string of wild, shocking media interviews earlier in the day, including one in which a CNN host said she smelled alcohol on him.

"They probably want to know about Miss Universe 2013, if I had to guess", Nunberg said.

Nunberg said he was only trying to protect Stone. "I don't care", Nunberg added about rumors that he could have been intoxicated.

"You're sitting very close to me, we talked earlier about what people in the White House were saying about you".

"I definitely think he doesn't know that for sure because he is incorrect", White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, denying Nunberg's claim.

The disgraced former Trump aide is of note because he refuses to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller.

Twitter, as you might imagine, had a field day with the interviews. After telling Burnett that he thinks it may have something to do with Trump's businesses, Nunberg took the opportunity to take a shot at pro-Trump cable news hosts.

Told MSNBC by phone shortly after it "would be amusing if they arrested me".

"I was briefly part of the Trump campaign and have been the president's friend and adviser for decades, and would expect that Mueller's team would at some point ask for any documents or emails sent or written by me", Stone said. "He was talking about it a week before..."

"I have to ask you one other thing". Nunberg seemed not to care about how the chips would fall. "He took over cable news like a vehicle chase".

They also said that they were anxious Nunberg had been drinking prior to dialing in to MSNBC and CNN.

The former campaign manager said he believes Mueller "thinks that Trump is the Manchurian Candidate", an assessment that Nunberg disagrees with. "They know something on [Trump] ..."

Nunberg was scheduled to be interviewed on 22 February by Mueller. They're worth checking out in their entirety, as are the video clips at the Buzzfeed and Mediaite links.
