Media 'Feasts' on Vulnerable, Possibly Drunk Former Trump Aide

  • Stormy Who? Democratic Leaders Won't Talk About Trump's Porn Star Payoff

Following his interview with The Washington Post, Nunberg called in live to MSNBC, CNN and other networks for lengthy phone interviews - a spectacle reminiscent of Trump routinely calling into cable television control rooms during the 2016 campaign.

"I wasn't there to teach the president the Constitution", Nunberg said. He has privately bragged to reporters about planting fake stories in the press and publicly admitted to making up a story that went viral about former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) picking up McDonald's food for then-candidate Trump. He [Nunberg] seems personally tormented, and no one who knows anything about his brief role in the early summer of the 2015 Trump campaign can justify the sudden interest the special counsel has taken in this marginal character.

"I got as far as the Fourth Amendment", Nunberg told Wolff, "before his finger is pulling down on his lip and his eyes are rolling back in his head".

Nunberg spent hours hopping from media outlet to media outlet - an odd strategy, given that one of his arguments for defying the subpoena was that he didn't have the time to search through the emails the grand jury requested. He would not say whether there are any other witness interviews to come after this week. "He hasn't worked at the White House, so I certainly can't speak to him or the lack of knowledge that he clearly has", she said.

Several of Nunberg's friends grew concerned about him as the day went on and tried to call him and beg him to stop, but he was not responsive, two of these people said.

Nunberg consistently said he was willing to risk arrest to skip a scheduled appearance before a grand jury.

He also said he believes the only reason he's being asked to testify before the grand jury is to provide information that would be used against Stone, a longtime Trump adviser, which he says he won't do. "Donald Trump won this election on his own. And there is nobody who hates him more than me". Anyway, Trump didn't collude.

Nunberg added: "The Russians and Trump did not collude".


Nunberg, who was sacked twice from Trump's campaign - once in 2014 and again in 2015 - also called Trump an "idiot" on CNN and suggested that Mueller might have incriminating information about the president.

Yet, Nunberg can't just ignore a federal subpoena.

A White House source told CNN that, after admitting to the House Intelligence Committee that she told "white lies" in her role as White House Communications Director, a tearful Hicks informed White House communications staffers that she would resign.

He reiterated to the Daily Caller that he "was not on any substances" during the televised interviews.

"Because it is the talk out there - again, I know it's awkward - let me just give you the question so you can categorically answer", Burnett said. And this is something you should report: after I was in there for six hours, and I paid for an attorney and we paid to go down there, they then sent me this on Friday and wanted it by 3 p.m. today.

"I think it would be amusing if they arrested me", Nunberg said on MSNBC. "It sounds like a pain, but he is the special counsel".

"This is not Mr. Nunberg's decision, and he will be in criminal contempt for refusing to show up".
