Former Trump aide says the President 'may have done something illegal'

RUSSIA MEDDLING PROBE Ex Trump aide says he won't comply with subpoena served by Mueller Former Trump aide says the President 'may have done something illegal'

The special counsel in the Russian Federation investigation has learned of two conversations in recent months in which President Trump asked key witnesses about matters they discussed with investigators, according to three people familiar with the encounters. In Trump, Nunberg found a kindred spirit who was also a role model. I've been pretty sympathetic to the Mueller probe, and I remain respectful of Mueller himself, but this is puzzling. "I never met with Assange" in 2016, he said. 'Officer, I'm a busy man, I don't have time to walk you out to the third storage drain north of my barn!

Nunberg rounded out his day of incendiary comments by chatting with with a New York Magazine reporter.

"[The President] often sounds like a moron (...) this whole thing is a witch hunt". As CNN recaps, Trump has fired him, rehired him, fired him again and sued him for $10 million before the two of them settled a lawsuit over Nunberg's alleged breach of their nondisclosure agreement. Trump can't keep his expletiving mouth shut, Nunberg told Politico.

Beyond being a former adviser to Trump's campaign team, he is the man who Trump hired, fired, rehired, refired and then sued for $10 million Dollars. Yes, ratings had something to do with it, but it was also because media types thought they were getting information that they could use against Donald Trump.

"Let's see what Mr. Mueller does".

Society of Professional Journalists ethics chairman Andrew Seaman penned a blog entry about the situation and said it's "complicated", but "it may have been best and more responsible to tape an interview with Nunberg instead of airing it on live television". The president also has wondered aloud if the couple would be better off returning home to NY.

"I'm a little anxious about me", Nunberg told The New York Daily News in a wide-ranging interview. For that, he was automatically shunned, reduced to a mere mention, by Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Monday's substitute-for-Tucker-Carlson Mark Steyn (don't know him? he's the one that yells in a Canadian growl and looks like a grizzly bear who's learned to shave).

He told Melber on MSNBC, "Mr. Mueller, if he wants to send me to jail, he can send me to jail, and then I'll laugh about it and I'll make a bigger spectacle than I am on your show right now". So would we all. "And there is nobody who hates him more than me".

After Trump fired him, the staffer turned around and endorsed Sen.

Axios dismisses Nunberg as someone with no meaningful connection to Trump. But he can't tell the grand Jury to get lost. Nunberg pulled out the usual, right-wing, why-isn't-Hillary-being-investigated speech, but he also began yammering so aimlessly that Burnett felt it appropriate to tell Nunberg that "I smell alcohol on your breath", to which Nunberg replied he was not drunk, as much as this might have made for a merciful excuse for his behavior. They'll put him on the air simply because of what he says that they don't check, they don't verify, they don't corroborate, just like they didn't check or corroborate or verify anything that Christopher Steele said in that stupid dossier.

In the Whitewater investigation during the Clinton administration, an Arkansas business associate of Bill Clinton's, Susan McDougal, spent 18 months in prison for not complying with a grand jury subpoena. The FBI does not like being provoked.
