Politics Ex Trump aide Sam Nunberg says he’s complying with Russia probe after all
A former Trump campaign aide appeared for hours before a grand jury Friday, after he defiantly insisted in a series of news interviews just days earlier that he meant to defy a subpoena in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.
A former Trump campaign aide appeared for hours before a federal grand jury Friday, after he defiantly insisted in a series of news interviews just days earlier that he meant to defy a subpoena in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.
On Monday, Numberg told multi USA media outlets that he planned to defy the federal subpoena from Mueller's team compelling his testimony.
"Let him arrest me", Nunberg told The Washington Post in an interview.
Nunberg, who was subpoenaed by the federal grand jury, spent Monday creating a media frenzy by telling multiple news outlets that he would ignore the order, even at the risk of jail.
But later that night, Nunberg, who initially suggested that he considered Mueller's document demands unreasonable, told The Associated Press he had relented and predicted he'd wind up complying after all.
President Trump participates in a meeting with leaders of the steel industry on March 1, 2018.
Nunberg confirmed during the interview that he had surrendered to Mueller's team a trove of communications - including texts and emails between 10 campaign associates and President Trump - ahead of the Wednesday evening deadline.
"I'm not going to take the fifth on anything, because I don't need to take the fifth on anything", he said.
Nunberg first worked for one of Trump's businesses and later helped advise his presidential campaign.
So far, 19 people and three companies have been charged in Mueller's investigation.
Nunberg also was close to former White House adviser Steve Bannon, who met with Mueller's team on several occasions last month, the sources said. Five people, including Flynn, have pleaded guilty.
