Nunberg's About Face: Former Trump Aide Nullifies His Defiance of Mueller

Nunberg's About Face: Former Trump Aide Nullifies His Defiance of Mueller

"I think it would be amusing if they arrested me", Nunberg said to MSNBC's Katy Tur.

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

"You know he knew about it", Nunberg told CNN's Jake Tapper.

In a series of weird interviews to the CNN and MSNBC, former Trump campaign manager Sam Nunberg dared Special Counsel Robert Mueller to arrest him ( a statement he retracted later) and said he suspected President Donald Trump "may have done something illegal" - or not.

But he was sacked in August that year after strong racist comments he made on his Facebook page years earlier surfaced.

"The Russians and Trump did not collude", Nunberg said.

Nunberg said repeatedly throughout his day of interviews that he was anxious Mueller was attempting to build a case against Stone, whom he considers a "mentor" and "like a father".

Shortly after Nunberg lobbed the first allegation, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders rebuffed him during the White House press briefing.

To which Mr Nunberg responded: "I have not had a drink". "She's not attractive. She's a fat slob". But that's unrelevant [sic].

In a series of unusual interviews, Nunberg unleashed his unfiltered thoughts on Monday about Mueller's investigation into possible coordination between members of the Trump campaign and Russians set on influencing the 2016 election. "Do you think Robert Mueller is going to send me to prison?" he asked. Trump "flat-out refused", according to Nunberg.

The stylist, Suzie Hardy , said she lost her job for reporting Seacrest to the human resources department. News say it has spoken to a hardy co-worker who says he witnessed the alleged harassment.

Update: On Monday evening, Nunberg appeared in person on Ari Melber's MSNBC show, and said that he thought that Mueller's team was interested in Trump's businesses.

Aides have said that before they try to tune out daily developments on the Russian Federation investigation - the only way, they say, they'd be able to continue about the business of running the country.

Nunberg also said that it was the "biggest joke" that Trump himself had colluded with Russian Federation, a point he echoed to the Post. He also said that he was offered immunity. "Putin is too smart to collude with Donald Trump". However, the president has denied any such wrongdoing.

"I am going to give a major speech on probably Monday of next week, and we're going to be discussing all of the things that have taken place with the Clintons", then-candidate Trump said.

"It is incredibly unsafe and it's also such a bad idea to do it so publicly", she said of Mr Nunberg's public pronouncements.

TUR: Why do you think that?

Asked Tuesday about the concerns he elicited, Nunberg declined to get into details and said simply "it's not an issue".

It also called for him to testify before a grand jury. Trump, he said, "was talking about it a week before". "I can't explain it unless you were in there".

"If it were me, I would", Tapper replied. "I mean, just asking my opinion, because it sounds like a pain, but he is the special counsel, and he does have the long arm of the law".
