Former Trump Aide Announces He Won't Testify Before Mueller Grand Jury

Trump-Russia: Ex-aide refuses to co-operate with Mueller probe

Mueller is investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign and potential collusion between Russia and Trump campaign officials. CNN's Erin Burnett had told Nunberg on air that she smelled alcohol on his breath.

Nunberg: Well, I have not had a drink.

Nunberg said Mueller likely has some kind of evidence on Trump of misbehavior, "but I don't know about that for sure".

Nunberg repeatedly affirmed his dislike of Trump; he told the Post "there is nobody who hates him more than me", and MSNBC that he is "not a fan of Donald Trump".

Mueller's investigation was a "witch hunt", he told outlets, but Nunberg also had a sneaking suspicion Trump "may have done something during the election".

What followed was a rambling, at-times incoherent series of exchanges as Nunberg asked for legal advice, opined about whether Trump colluded with Russian Federation, and relitigated an internal Trump campaign power struggle from 2015 - all live, on the air, in real time. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Nunberg wouldn't know anything because he never served in the White House.

Matic lets rip to clinch late victory for Man United over Palace
Man United produced a stunning comeback to beat Crystal Palace 3-2 on the Monday Night Football and they saved the best for last. Relegation-threatened Palace remain third bottom - a point from safety - having failed to win for the sixth successive game.

"It was wrong of me to attack Sarah", he said.

Nunberg, who says he has already spent several hours talking to investigators, insists he is not hiding anything. "I don't think it's fair to ask for my personal communications". Nunberg asked CNN's Jake Tapper. "It was around eight days before the first debate and I didn't want him to have any gotcha questions". He also suggested the special counsel insinuates that Roger Stone had collaborated with Julian Assange's WikiLeaks group which released documents hacked from Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Nunberg told TheDC he is now undergoing the process of complying with Mueller's subpoena by sifting through and copying his emails.

Carter Page, former foreign policy adviser for the Trump campaign, speaks to the media after testifying before the House Intelligence Committee on November 2, 2017 in Washington, DC.

Nunberg, who worked on Trump's staff early in the campaign, has largely escaped public involvement in Mueller's investigation. Nunberg was sacked from the Trump campaign in 2015 after racist Facebook posts were uncovered on his personal account. That's the reality. Now Trump loves Corey.

Even though he is just 36 years old, few people have been as close to Trump for as many years as Nunberg. He then supported Ted Cruz's campaign for the Republican nomination. Later, Trump sued him for breach of confidentiality, but the case was settled out of court. After a time, that lawsuit was settled.
