Former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg has told journalists that has no intention of cooperating with a subpoena issued by Robert Mueller‘s office.
The Washington Post reports Nurnberg told them he received a subpoena requiring him to appear before a federal grand jury and present documents pertaining to his communications with President Trump and various officials and allies affiliated with the mogul’s campaign. However, Nunberg says he refuses to testify, and he plans to go on Bloomberg TV to tear up the subpoena on air.
“Let him arrest me,” Nunberg said. “Mr. Mueller should understand I am not going in on Friday…I’m not spending 80 hours going over my emails with Roger Stone and Stephen K. Bannon and producing them.”
Nunberg has been thoroughly dismissive of the notion of Trump/Russian collusion, having said in an interview last week that Trump wouldn’t be able to refrain from talking about it if he really did do it.
Shortly after WaPo‘s report dropped, Nunberg appeared on MSNBC and went on a raving diatribe about the subpoena. During this tangent, Nunberg admitted “I think my lawyer’s going to dump me” for what he was telling Katy Tur.
