A former aide on President Trump’s campaign, and a close confidante of Roger Stone, Sam Nunberg has an interesting take on the ongoing rumors that are swirling about Team Trump.
Nunberg was fired along with his mentor, Trump friend Roger Stone, but he did spend some time inside the Trump Team’s inner circle and what he saw could play a role in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. However, Nunberg won’t be playing along with that investigation… at least, not by choice. He told MSNBC’s Katy Tur that he would not be complying with Mueller’s investigation.
“Let him arrest me,” Nunberg said. “Mr. Mueller should understand I am not going in on Friday.”
Katy Tur: “What you are doing is surprising, to say the least. But you sat there in that room being questioned about Mueller’s investigators, I want to hear directly from you, do you think that they have something on the president?”
Sam Nunberg: “I think they may. I think that he may have done something during the election. But I don’t know that for sure.”
Katy Tur: “Why do you think that?”
Sam Nunberg: “I can’t explain it unless you were in there. The way they ask questions about anything I heard after I was fired from the campaign to the general election to even November 1 it insinuated to me that he may have done something. And he may very well have…
I’m not interested in handing all of my e-mails over that I communicated with Steve Bannon and with other people and with Roger Stone. I’m not interested in it. I’m not interested in them insinuating that Roger did something bad.”
Nunberg also said that it was ridiculous to think that he or Roger Stone had acted as intermediaries for the Russians, or as a partner to Julian Assange.
“And as you remember, when you covered that campaign, Katy, Roger and me were treated terribly and trust me we weren’t colluding with Trump. It wasn’t some smart idea we had for us to be fired and then we would get the e-mails from Russia. If Roger and me were there, Katy, we would have had the Benghazi parents there, at the first debate, we would have had Bill Clinton’s illegitimate black child there at the second debate and we would have had the women there.”
