Sam Nunberg Declares He Has ‘Absolutely’ No Regrets Over Media Blitz: ‘Monday Was Fun!’
Last Monday, the news cycle was completely overtaken by former Trump aide Sam Nunberg, who appeared in a series of unhinged TV interviews following his announcement that he would refuse to appear before the special counsel’s grand jury despite being subpoenaed. The interviews were so crazed and off-the-rails that CNN’s Erin Burnett asked Nunberg if he had been drinking, telling him she smelled alcohol on his breath.
After appearing before the grand jury on Friday and stating afterward that he doesn’t feel the investigation is a “witch hunt,” Nunberg showed up on MSNBC today. Besides dishing on the Mueller probe and offering advice to President Donald Trump, he also remarked on his Monday media blitz.
And it certainly appears he has no regrets.
After letting host Alex Witt know that Special Counsel Robert Mueller wasn’t present for his GJ testimony, Nunberg was asked if he regretted anything he said during his series of interviews or his decision to do the TV appearances.
“Absolutely not, he exclaimed. “Monday was fun! It was fun.”
Nunberg went on to note that he received some good legal advice during his appearance on MSNBC’s The Beat with Ari Melber, pointing out that a legal expert let him know that he looked like he was trying to hide something by refusing to go before the grand jury.
He concluded by saying that while it would be “psychologically difficult” to live through that experience again, nobody has “melted down” TV like that since Trump.
