Schiff calls for Sam Nunberg to testify in House Russia investigation

Schiff calls for Sam Nunberg to testify in House Russia investigation

Former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg vowed Monday to refuse a subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team to appear before a grand jury this week as part of the Russian Federation probe, defiantly claiming: "Let him arrest me".

"Why do I have to go? Why?"

In an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, the host told Nunberg she smelled alcohol on his breath, but the former Trump aide denied he had been drinking.

"This is so ridiculous".

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.

After the Tur interview, Nunberg, who, it should be noted, has a reputation for making things up, called Jake Tapper at CNN and gave a similarly loopy performance.

A former top advisor to Donald Trump's presidential campaign said he will not comply with a subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Nunberg said he was asked to come to Washington to appear before the grand jury on Friday.

Nunberg was sacked from the Trump campaign on August 2, 2015, because of racially charged Facebook posts he wrote, less than two months after Trump launched his bid for the White House.

Nunberg later told Vox he was referring to public comments Trump made during his election campaign in June 7, 2016.

Anyone subpoenaed to testify before a grand jury has the right to refuse to answer questions to avoid self-incrimination.

Nunberg also said Trump's foreign policy aide Carter Page was also colluding with Russian Federation, but he undermined Page's role in it.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger should STAY: Sky Sports pundit makes controversial claim
Over the course of the last five seasons, there has been a particularly repeated cry from Arsenal Supporters, " Wenger Out ". The decision to rest players like Aaron Ramsey and Hector Bellerin was understandable but clearly didn't work.

Nunberg: You know what?

In 2016, Trump sued Nunberg for $10 million for allegedly leaking confidential campaign information to the press.

It's unclear why Nunberg so quickly changed his mind.

Nunberg said he was not fearful of what Mueller may think of his refusal to cooperate or the possibility of being arrested.

He said he didn't believe his public defiance would wind him in any legal trouble, noting that Mueller's team is composed of "very professional people".

Sometimes there's so much news crammed into a single day of The Donald Trump Show that you aren't sure where Stephen Colbert will start.

"And if they send me a subpoena that doesn't include Carter Page". Nunberg rejected any notion that Trump had colluded with Russians.

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

Then later in the interview, Nunberg seemed to contradict his original refusal to comply with the Mueller investigation.

UPDATE: March 5, 2018, 3:16 p.m. PST Nunberg later appeared on NY1 where he called Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders a "joke" and "fat slob".

Nunberg also suggested in an early afternoon interview with MSNBC that the federal authorities may have "something" on Trump, insinuating that evidence exists of illegal conduct by Trump during the election.
