Ex-aide Sam Nunberg won’t comply with subpoena, says Trump ‘may have done something’

Sam Nunberg, a former Donald Trump campaign aide, plans to defy a subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller requesting campaign documents related to the Russia investigation, saying Monday that it would be “really funny” if he were arrested.

“The president’s right, it’s a witch hunt,” Nunberg told MSNBC’s Katy’s Tur.

“I’m not going to cooperate when they want me to come into a grand jury for them to insinuate that (former Trump adviser) Roger Stone was colluding with (Wikileaks founder) Julian Assange,” he added.

Nunberg’s refusal comes after the grand jury investigating alleged collusion between Russia and Trump’s presidential campaign sent him a subpoena seeking documents involving Trump and a host of his closest advisers.

According to the subpoena, which was sent to Nunberg by Mueller, investigators want emails, text messages, work papers, telephone logs and other documents going back to Nov. 1, 2015, nearly five months after Trump launched his campaign.

Nunberg, who has already been interviewed by Mueller’s office, called the idea that Trump or his campaign colluded with Russia the “biggest joke,” but he suggested — without any evidence — that Mueller may have something on the president.
