Sam Nunberg apologizes to Sarah Sanders: 'I was having a rough day'

Nunberg said in multiple appearances he would defy orders to appear before Mueller to answer questions about whether or not the campaign of President Trump colluded with Russian operatives during the 2016 presidential election.

As well as the Trump Tower negotiations, Cohen is reported to have received the Ukraine peace proposal plan from a Ukrainian lawmaker a week after Trump took office. He added, however, that based on questions investigators had asked him, "it's my impression that they may have something on him".

Nunberg told CNN's Gloria Borger Monday that investigators "want me to testify against Roger".

Nunberg's comments about the president were just a slice of the bombshell claims he made on the air Monday.

Nunberg became a prototype of sorts for a certain type of aide Mr. Trump attracted - unfailingly devoted, politically on the fringe and potentially volatile - he may prove to be an unpredictable witness for the same reasons the president's anxiety over the investigation continues to grow. He said he "despises" outgoing White House communications director Hope Hicks.

Nunberg reportedly spent Tuesday and part of Wednesday trying to rectify his public image amid fallout from his barrage of cable news appearances. Wiley said in the broadcast she was "flabbergasted" at what she was hearing. I assume he has sought the advice and counsel of his lawyer.

Most analysts agreed that the damage may have already been done.

Mr. Nunberg said that he was subpoenaed to go before a grand jury on Friday, but it is unclear from his bombastic interviews whether he has information that will prove valuable to Mr. Mueller, or whether he is a campaign aide simply nursing old wounds in a manner created to grab a cable-obsessed president's attention. "I'm not cooperating", he said later as he challenged officials to charge him.

Andrew Wright, a professor at Savannah Law School and the former associate White House counsel under President Barack Obama, said it was "hard to watch the spectacle".

Mr. Nunberg's time with the Trump campaign was brief but consequential.

In a telephone call with MSNBC, Nunberg said a subpoena to appear before a grand jury was "absolutely ridiculous".

For one afternoon, former Trump aide Sam Nunberg single-handedly owned the media cycle. Prince denied the allegations, but now, it sounds like special counsel Robert Mueller has evidence.

"If it were me, I would", Tapper responded, telling Nunberg: "Sometimes life and special prosecutors are not fair, I guess".

The US intelligence community determined in January 2017 that Russian intelligence provided the hacked emails to WikiLeaks, which Assange denies.
