“I really could care less what the Trump White House has to say about me…they’re doing a terrible job for him.” – Former Trump aide Sam Nunberg joins @erinburnett amid claims he will defy a subpoena from Robert Mueller https://t.co/epFHRTgRAZ pic.twitter.com/bJ7zrBlWZD

Former Trump aide Sam Nunberg introduced himself to cable news viewers on Monday, and he’s already notorious. At warp speed, Nunberg gave multiple bonkers cable news interviews to complain about receiving a subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and Nunberg insisted that he wouldn’t cooperate with turning over emails or report again for grand jury testimony. He pledged allegiance to conspiracy theorist Roger Stone and acted manic, and as CNN’s Erin Burnett tells him in the above clip, sources close to president Trump stated that Nunberg may be under the influence. Burnett bluntly repeated their claims: “You’re drunk or off your meds.”
To this, Nunberg replied that he “didn’t care” what anyone in the White House thought of him, and he proceeded to continue delivering a 30-minute, rambling interview. Yet in the below clip, Burnett leveled with him: “I have smelled alcohol on your breath.” Nunberg flatly denied the accusation.
Earlier in the day, Nunberg made no secret of not being a fan of Trump, and on the subject of Russian collusion, he suggested, “I think that he [Trump] have done something during the election.” Nunberg offered no proof and no apology while speaking with Burnett, but he doesn’t appear to believe that Mueller would ever jail him for not cooperating with the subpoena. “I’m not going to get sent to prison,” he asserted, and later (after Burnett said that Mueller could jail him), Nunberg mused, “Maybe I’ll just give them my password, my email password.”
One can only guess what he will say tomorrow, but you can watch Nunberg’s full interview with Erin Burnett below.
