UPDATE — 2:56 p.m. ET: Business Insider’s Oliver Darcy took to Twitter with information from the AP that says former campaign consultant Sam Nunberg leaked confidential information to members of the press. “Nunberg accuses Trump of trying to silence him ‘in a misguided attempt to cover up media coverage of an apparent affair’ between senior campaign staffers,” it reads.
