Former Trump Aide Refuses Mueller Subpoena

Ultimately, Nunberg told CNN that Trump "may very well have done something during the election with the Russians".

Mueller, the former FBI director who is leading the investigation into possible ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, is also seeking any records Nunberg has relating to Trump and nine others involved with his administration, including emails and telephone logs, Nunberg said. The president has said he was unaware of the gathering.

United States intelligence has said those documents were illicitly obtained by or on behalf of the Russian government.

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

Though he won't go before the grand jury, Nunberg said he had previously been interviewed by Mueller's team, which is investigating Russian collusion with Trump's campaign during 2016. "He may. He may".

"You know Mueller can arrest you, right?" he asked.

In a 2017 interview with Newsmax, Nunberg said his grandfather Simon survived Auschwitz but that the rest of Simon's family, including his parents, were murdered. At the end of his interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, Nunberg asked whether the TV anchor thought he should instead cooperate with Mueller.

"He's too smart for that, he didn't want it", said Nunberg of the president.

"I got very aggravated", Nunberg said, explaining why he felt compelled to go on a TV blitz on CNN, MSNBC and a local NY station to share his frustrations. She reminded reporters that Nunberg had never worked in the White House.

Nunberg is not the first person to challenge Mueller.

Nunberg, who was sacked from the campaign in 2015 over racially charged social media post, received a subpoena to testify Friday before Robert Mueller's Russian Federation grand jury about his correspondence with Steve Bannon and Roger Stone.

Following the incident, clashes between surging crowds and security forces erupted in a few Shopian areas, a report said. The killed terrorist has been identified as Shahid Ahmad Dar and a weapon has been recovered from him.

The Washington Post said Nunberg provided the paper with an apparent copy of a subpoena seeking documents related to Trump and nine others, and that Nunberg said he was asked to appear before the grand jury in Washington on Friday.

Page, who served as a former Trump foreign policy adviser during the race for the White House, denies any wrongdoing in the matter.

By 9:53 p.m. on the East Coast, Nunberg further reversed the statement of cooperation and told MSNBC's Melber that he wanted investigators to explain why he needsed to testify, adding, "I'm not interested in facilitating a circumstantial case against Roger Stone".

"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", he said during an interview with MSNBC.

"Donald Trump did not collude with the Russians". He campaigned his a- off. I think that I was just more of myself in these interviews than I've ever been. That would presume a level of strategy that wasn't exactly in evidence on Nunberg's media tour yesterday.

Is he hoping to get immunity (he claims Mueller already offered)?

"Screw that", he told Gloria Borger on CNN.

Criminal defense lawyer Charles Clayman told the Daily Beast he had some advice for the defiant Nunberg.

Did Nunberg's weird day change anything in the investigation?

"It's rather astounding. I certainly - the way I've seen the subpoena - it is a reasonable subpoena".
