Trump Aide Unravels in Wild Whirlwind Media Tour: 'I Hate the Guy'

The subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller requests documents from 10 people including President Trump

The subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller requests documents from 10 people including President Trump

"I'm not spending 80 hours going over my emails with Roger Stone and Steve Bannon and producing them".

Seeming to dare the authorities to challenge him on the refusal, Nunberg told Tapper that he would not appear before a grand jury or spend time reviewing his communications in order to comply with the subpoena. Nunberg told TheWrap and various other news organization that he was not interested in helping Mueller build a circumstantial case against his friend and mentor Roger Stone.

Nunberg, who on Monday vowed to ignore a subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, was on his latest of multiple interviews when the suspicion was raised. He did not elaborate either time as to what he thinks may have been illegal.

Mueller is the special counsel leading the probe into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government to sway the election in his favour. White House officials on Monday attacked his credibility and characterized his media appearances as unhinged. But, Wisenberg said that Nunberg broadcasting his subpoena defiance would not help him in this matter.

Nunberg was on Trump's payroll from mid-2011 to August 2015 when he was sacked from Trump's campaign in the early days after Business Insider published a story about his racially charged Facebook posts.

"Screw that", he told her.

"He treated me like crap", he told CNN's Jake Tapper. He said Trump "does not have a coherent political ideology", according to Politico. Trump did not collude with Putin.

He then made a number of hysterical claims in the interviews.

Later in the evening, talking to Ari Melber at MSNBC, Nunberg said that Trump was "the most disloyal person [you're] ever gonna meet".

Plus it's going to a high orbit about 22,000 miles (around 35,700 kilometers) above Earth known as geostationary orbit. But 2017 was a banner year for the company, with a record 18 Falcon 9 launches, and no major launch mishaps.

Conaway suggested there's little interest in bringing Nunberg in to testify before the panel, and seemed to downplay the former Trump adviser's comments that Trump knew about the June 2016 meeting in advance.

"Oh, Sam, I think your dentist is going to dump you right now", the comedian replied.

Co-host Joe Scarborough said he just felt sorry for Nunberg.

"They want me in there for grand jury on Friday". I don't really care. "We talked earlier about what people in the White House were saying about you".

As for his subpoena, Nunberg expressed amusement at the notion that he can be arrested for refusing to comply with the subpoena. "I smell alcohol on your breath", she said.

Nunberg said repeatedly throughout his day of interviews that he was anxious Mueller was attempting to build a case against Stone, whom he considers a "mentor" and "like a father".

"I'm going to end up cooperating with them", he said.

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 also said the investigators insinuated that Stone had collaborated with Julian Assange's WikiLeaks group, which published documents hacked from Democrat Hillary Clinton's election campaign in mid-2016. "Do you think I'm going to jail?"
