Former Trump Aide Announces He Won't Testify Before Mueller Grand Jury

After news broke that Nunberg refuses to cooperate with the Russian Federation investigation and will not comply with special counsel Robert Mueller's subpoena to appear before a grand jury, the former Trump campaign adviser called into MSNBC and kicked off a whirlwind series of interviews.

Sam Nunberg, angry over a subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators, initially said he was willing to go to jail rather than turn over emails he exchanged with a number of people involved in the Trump campaign, including Stone.

In the earlier interviews, Nunberg said he thought Mueller may already have incriminating evidence on Trump directly, although he would not say what that evidence might be. "I think that Carter Page is a weird dude - I don't think he should have been involved in that campaign", he said.

He told CNN's Jack Tapper that he believes Trump knew about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting by top campaign officials and a Russian lawyer who promised dirt on the then-Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

Later in the evening, talking to Ari Melber at MSNBC, Nunberg said that Trump was "the most disloyal person [you're] ever gonna meet". Wolff said the former adviser was "generally regarded as the man who understood Trump's whims and impulses best" and a Bannon associate. "He's going to lose this fight".

Nunberg backed up his view in another interview with CNN's Jake Tapper where he asserted Mueller has "something" on Trump.

"I'm not going to cooperate when they want me to come in to a grand jury for them to insinuate that Roger Stone was colluding with Julian Assange", Nunberg said. He added that Mueller's team also asked for communications with former Trump campaign staffers Hope Hicks and Corey Lewandowski.

Burnett then pressed Nunberg on any possible drug use, echoing accusations about him that circulating from the White House.

Mueller is the special counsel leading the probe into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to sway the election in his favour.

Mr Nunberg said Mueller's questioning suggested he was looking into stories about the president and prostitutes when Mr Trump took his Miss Universe pageant to Moscow in 2013. He never worked at the White House and was jettisoned from the Trump campaign early on, in August 2015.
