There is a former President Donald Trump’s campaign aide Sam Nunberg who was fired early on in 2015 because of his racist Facebook posts which became public. Can you believe that President Trump sued him over this?
Sam Nunberg admits that his mentor is none other than Roger Stone and that he is still close to Steve Bannon.
Mr. Nunberg had been recently observed being a guest on several cable TV news show talking about his recent interview with the FBI’s Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office. So it was a surprise when today, on the 5th day of March 2018, that he lost it as he was talking live to the MSNBC TV host, Katy Tur.
It seems that the former aide had very recently been subpoenaed to appear in front of a federal grand jury investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election but that he is now announcing for the public record that he refuses to go.
Mr. Nunberg said something along these lines, “What they sent me was absolutely ridiculous. They wanted every e-mail I had with Roger Stone and with Steve Bannon. Why should I hand them e-mails from November 1, 2015?” He was referencing his adviser Stone, and Mr. Bannon.
‘Then Mr. Nunberg continued, “I was preparing it. Should I spend 50 hours going over all my emails with Roger and with Steve Bannon? And then they wanted emails that I had with Hope Hicks, with Corey Lewandowski. Are you giving me a break? It’s ridiculous…I’m not going to cooperate when they want me to have – when they want me to come in to a grand jury, for them to insinuate that Roger Stone was colluding with Julian Assange. Roger is my mentor. Roger is like family to me. I’m not going to do it.”
I would not be so surprised if he is soon opening the door to some visiting FBI agents.
Here is the rest of the story…
On March 5, 2018, Josh Dawsey of the Washington Post penned the following report, “Former Trump aide Sam Nunberg called before grand jury, says he will refuse to go”
“In an interview with The Washington Post, Nunberg said he was asked to come to Washington to appear before the grand jury on Friday. He also provided a copy of what appears to be his two-page grand jury subpoena seeking documents related to President Trump and nine other people, including emails, correspondence, invoices, telephone logs, calendars and “records of any kind.”
“Nunberg forwarded an email listed as coming from the office of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III seeking his appearance in front of the panel on Friday (3/9/2018).”
“Among those the subpoena requests information about are departing White House communications director Hope Hicks, former White House strategist Stephen K. Bannon, Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and adviser Roger Stone.”
“Nunberg said he does not plan to comply with the subpoena, including either providing testimony or documents.”
“Nunberg said he was planning to go on Bloomberg TV and tear up the subpoena.”
“It is unclear what actions Mueller would take if Nunberg does not appear in front of the grand jury. Nunberg, an early campaign aide, was dismissed by Trump and no longer is in his good graces.”
“The Russians and Trump did not collude,” Nunberg said. “Putin is too smart to collude with Donald Trump.”
“I’m not spending 80 hours going over my emails with Roger Stone and Steve Bannon and producing them,” Nunberg said. “Donald Trump won this election on his own. He campaigned his ass off. And there is nobody who hates him more than me.”
“Nunberg repeated his vow to not cooperate with Mueller in a Monday afternoon interview on MSNBC, where he also suggested that the prosecutor may have evidence against Trump.”
“I think they may,” Nunberg said. “I think that he may have done something during the election.”
