Roger Stone: I Don't Need Sam Nunberg's Protection

A former Trump campaign aide spent much of the day promising to defy a subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller, even throwing down the challenge to "arrest me", then backed off his defiance by saying he would probably cooperate in the end. I understand a reluctance to go through the contents of your emails. He at times sounded nervous and self-doubting, openly questioning his legal fate. He later told Tur he would cooperate with Mueller. That waffling came amidst the "extraordinary series of media interviews", as Dawsey and Rucker gently put it-which brings us to the Nunberg side story. He added: "Trump may have very well done something during the election".

Not as far as I know, and I didn't coordinate this with Roger. Perhaps I'm wrong, but he did something.

Stone said Tuesday that Nunberg was not "speaking at my behest or my direction", arguing that the former campaign aide "marches to his own drummer". "I was very close to Donald Trump". "I'm a little anxious about me", he said.

"I definitely think he doesn't know that for sure because he's incorrect".

John Dean, a White House counsel to President Richard Nixon during Watergate, tweeted Monday that Nunberg can't flatly refuse to comply with a grand jury subpoena.

Nunberg said he'd already blown a 3 p.m. Monday deadline to turn over the requested communications. Wiley said in the broadcast she was "flabbergasted" at what she was hearing.

"It is not an easy thing to do", McDougal said. "The difference is, I didn't know anything". He doesn't care. Screw this investigation - it is a witch hunt, and he does not feel like cooperating. Aides in the West Wing voiced frustration that Nunberg had thrust Russian Federation back into the headlines while also laughing at what they considered his lack of discipline.

He even phoned into NY1, the local NY media station, and called White House press secretary Sarah Sanders a "fat slob" - an attack he attempted to walk back to New York's Olivia Nuzzi at 11:30 p.m. Monday night.

Sanders also played down Nunberg's importance. "I can't speak to him or the lack of knowledge that he clearly has".

Nunberg told CNN's Gloria Borger Monday that investigators "want me to testify against Roger". He said that she's a slob because she does Trump's "dirty business". She is a slob! Fine. But that's not relevant. "They're pathetic. Their president has a 33 percent approval rating", Nunberg retorted. "When I interviewed him, and I interviewed him early, he admitted to me he was drinking". Mueller must be aware of how the appearance of his pursuit of Nunberg diminishes the overall credibility of his investigation. That's where the story actually goes from here.

He stated that he still "doesn't know" if he'll show up to the grand jury scheduled on Friday. He campaigned his a- off. I hope what I gave him was a sense of humanity we need now more than ever in this country. "That Carter Page is a weird dude". "[Russian President Vladimir] Putin is too smart to collude with Donald Trump".

I joined the set after Sam Nunberg referenced his racially offensive statements that got him fired from the Trump campaign, dismissing their relevance because they wouldn't have lost Trump a vote.

Nunberg is the first witness in the ongoing federal Russian Federation investigation to openly promise to defy a subpoena.

What kind of cold-blooded, heartless monster goes ahead with a nationally televised interview when she believes her guest is incapacitated and/or diminished by alcohol?

Sam Nunberg appeared drunk on CNN. And the next hour, Nunberg was on CNN again, this time with Tapper.

"You'd rather possibly spend a year in jail than spend 80 hours going through emails?" she asked.

"I think it would be amusing if they arrested me", he said in an interview with NBC.

"If it were me", Tapper replied, "I would".

A spokesman for the special counsel's office declined to comment.
