Sam Nunberg Says He Will Refuse Subpoena in Russia Probe

Sam Nunberg Says He Will Refuse Subpoena in Russia Probe

Former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg has greeted a subpoena to testify in the Russian Federation investigation with the kind of diplomatic flair legends are made of.

On Monday afternoon, during what was an otherwise relatively slow post-Oscars hangover news cycle, former advisor to Donald Trump Sam Nunberg came crashing onto the cable news scene like the Kool-Aid Man spiked with Everclear. He recently said that he believes he is being monitored by the FBI "Sure they'll get my grocery lists, they may get the emails between my wife and me, but here's what they won't get - any contact with the Russians".

"Why do I have to do it?"

Nunberg has since backpedaled, telling the Daily Caller he will comply with the subpoena.

"I was feeling sorry for that kid", Scarborough said. Nunberg was sacked from the Trump campaign in 2015 after racist Facebook posts were uncovered on his personal account. Nunberg rejected any notion that Trump had colluded with Russians.

"It is incredibly risky and it's also such a bad idea to do it so publicly", she said of Nunberg's public pronouncements. "Do you think I'm going to jail?"

During the MSNBC segment, Scarborough spoke about others who have shared a similar fate to Nunberg, including former Trump campaign adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to investigators past year.

Nunberg later told Vox he was referring to public comments Trump made during his election campaign in June 7, 2016.

Nunberg is scheduled to testify before the grand jury on Friday.

CNN host Erin Burnett told Sam Nunberg that he smelled of alcohol during an interview Monday after she asked him about speculation that intoxication was behind his incendiary remarks.

In a telephone call with MSNBC, Nunberg said a subpoena to appear before a grand jury was "absolutely ridiculous".

For the casual follower of the news, it is understandable that it is hard to remember who Nunberg is and to distinguish him from other names in the news like Carter Page, Roger Stone, George Papadopoulos, or Rick Gates. It requests all records relating to 10 people, including Donald Trump and his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders strongly rebutted Nunberg's statements, especially any any suggestion that the campaign had colluded with Russian Federation. "Why do I have to spend 80 hours going over my emails that I've had with Steve Bannon and with Roger Stone?". He told Ari Melber at MSNBC that Trump was "the most disloyal person [you're] ever gonna meet".

Nunberg also said "I suspect that they suspect something about {Donald Trump]".

"You know what if Sarah Huckabee wants to start debasing me she's a joke, okay fine she's not attractive she's a fat slob", he said.
