Former Trump aide says president 'may have done something illegal'

Former Trump aide says president 'may have done something illegal'

Hours after Sam Nunberg, former aide to President Donald Trump said he would risk jail term by not complying with a subpoena served him by special counsel Robert Mueller; the politician has retracted his comments.

Burnett: And it's an awkward question to ask, but, you know, I've interviewed you before, you're sitting very close to me. In two jaw-dropping interviews that stunned the political world (and probably Nunberg's lawyer), Nunberg, who was sacked by the Trump campaign in August 2015, revealed he had no plans to cooperate with Mueller - a stunt that will most likely end up with him in jail.

"This is so ridiculous". In various appearances, he called POTUS "the most disloyal person you're ever going to meet" and said, "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".

While on set with Erin Burnett on Monday evening, the CNN host openly accused Nunberg of being intoxicated while on air.

Nunberg, apparently beleaguered by the ongoing Russian Federation investigation, seemed to get more agitated as the day progressed, vowing not to cooperate with Robert Mueller's investigation and even at one point telling Josh Dawsey, "let him arrest me".

"But this is much broader than Sam Nunberg, after he spoke about his mentor Roger Stone, the former Trump advisor, as I just mentioned, Roger then spoke out in this unusual interview with Chuck Todd, it's another interesting development in the news about the Russian Federation probe", Melber continued.

Trump fired Nunberg in August 2015 after racially offensive posts appeared on his Facebook page. So again: If Mueller eventually says, "You must talk", and Trump says, "I won't", who wins? Nunberg said he didn't write the posts.

He also told MSNBC that the expansive subpoena proves Trump right. "Who the hell advised him to allow those Russians in the Oval Office?" he said. "I think he may have done something during the election".

Nunberg's tirade shocked lawmakers and even prompted a CNN reporter to ask if was drunk.

Nunberg also said "I suspect that they suspect something about {Donald Trump]". Although he said Trump "may have done something" illegal during the election, he also added: "I don't know that for sure". On Twitter, Ned Price, who is a former Central Intelligence Agency official said that this subpoena shows that Mueller is treating president Trump's "entire senior campaign team like a criminal enterprise".

"I just wanted people to know my story", he said. He said they acted professionally and that he was "very impressed by them" but that "what I'm not doing is following up with them".

He told MSNBC he thinks Trump "may have done something during the campaign". It requests all records relating to 10 people, including Donald Trump and his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen. He also said Mueller believes Trump ally Roger Stone colluded with Russian Federation. White House press secretary Huckabee Sanders defended the president, saying the White House is cooperating with Robert Mueller and his team. "But he can't tell the grand Jury to get lost".
