After TV Media Blitz Blasting Mueller Subpoena, Nunberg Says He'll Comply

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington What Sam Nunberg knows about possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia ... or doesn't

"Let him arrest me", Nunberg told The Washington Post on Monday of special counsel Robert Mueller, who he says has requested his appearance before the jury this Friday. Later, after playing a clip of Nunberg telling CNN's Jake Tapper "I'm not cooperating", Colbert said, "You know Mueller can arrest you, right?"

"This is so ridiculous".

Nunberg mourned the idea of producing every email he sent to Trump orbit members like Steve Bannon and Roger Stone.

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

Former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg is backing down from his brazen declarations less than 24 hours earlier that he planned to defy a federal subpoena issued by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Nunberg started working for then-businessman Trump in 2011, making him one of his earliest political advisers, but he was sacked from the Republican's campaign in August 2015 before the heat of the 2016 Presidential race.

He was sacked from the Trump campaign after Business Insider published a story about racially charged Facebook posts he had made.

It also called for him to testify before a grand jury. "Talking to you, I have smelled alcohol on your breath", she told Nunberg.

He also said he does not think Nunberg appeared to be "in control of himself".

Nunberg said he had already spoken with investigators for five-and-a- half hours last month and he wasn't going back in.

Later on Monday, Nunbery denied wrongdoing in a statement provided to CNN.

During an interview with MSNBC's Ari Melber Monday evening, it appeared Nunberg was beginning to realize the gravity of his refusal to cooperate with Mueller's subpoena.

Roger StoneRoger Stone is a former adviser to president Trump's presidential campaign, and although he left the campaign at the end of 2015, he has said he remained "a confidant to the President". He also said Mueller believes Trump ally Roger Stone colluded with Russian Federation.

"I'm happy if the scope changes", he said.

"I believe the president remains in his crosshair", he said.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders blasted Nunberg on Monday and refuted any suggestion that the campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

"Well, I have not had a drink", Nunberg replied.

"I think he may have done something during the election, but I don't know that for sure", Nunberg said.

U.S. President Donald Trump waves upon his arrival in West Palm Beach, Florida, U.S., March 2.

"I think it would be really, really amusing if they wanted to arrest me", he said.

"Carter Page was colluding with the Russians", Nunberg said of his fellow former Trump campaign aide.
