Ex-Trump Campaign Staffer Sam Nunberg Dared Robert Mueller to Arrest Him

"Carter Page was colluding with the Russians", Nunberg said of his fellow former Trump campaign aide. He was red-faced, defiant and nonchalant about being asked to provide documents and appear before the special counsel. Nunberg, who, CNN reported, has already met with investigators, went on a multihour media onslaught. It also called for him to testify before a grand jury.

One of the questions asked Sam Nunberg if he was familiar with any Russian spoken in or around Trump Tower.

The 36-year-old lawyer was booted off the Trump campaign after it was revealed that he had made racially charged social media posts about the Rev. Al Sharpton and former President Barack Obama. In a series of weird, whiplash-inducing interviews to follow, Nunberg at times declared President Trump both guilty and innocent of collusion, accused other campaign figures of playing footsie with the Russians, and pledged to tear up his subpoena on live television.

"I know you all came here to hear me talk about trade tariffs, "Stephen Colbert said at the top of Monday's Late Show". "The way they ask questions about anything I heard after I was sacked from the campaign, to the general election, to even November 1, is insinuated to me that he may have done something, and he may very well have".

"Let's see what Mr. Mueller does. Roger", Nunberg told Yahoo News on Monday.

Wiley responded to Nunberg's turnaround in a statement to MSNBC outlining the reason why it's so critical and impactful that Nunberg was able to speak, listen, and engage with a Black woman.

Tur then asked how he knew that. Nunberg's final interview was given to CNN's Erin Burnett, who asked during the segment whether Nunberg was drunk.

But Nunberg denied he had drank anything or that he had taken anything other than his medication.

During his outburst, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders reiterated that Trump was cooperating with Mueller's probe and wouldn't answer questions about Nunberg.

"I'm not going to cooperate", Nunberg told MSNBC.

Speculation swirled that Nunberg had been hitting the bottle before giving several weird interviews Monday evening, during which he repeatedly vowed to not comply with a subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller.

Going on a literal media meltdown, from one show to the next, Nunberg grew more visibly irritated throughout the day. "I think it would be really, really amusing if they wanted to arrest me because I don't want to spend 80 hours going over emails I had with Steve Bannon and Roger Stone", he said, referring to both the former White House chief strategist and one of Trump's associates. "Mr. Mueller should understand I am not going in".

However, more recently, Nunberg claimed that he would be likely to cooperate with authorities. She reminded reporters that Nunberg had never worked in the White House.

Mueller is investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign and potential collusion between Russia and Trump campaign officials.
