How Sam Nunberg took over cable news with his Mueller ranting

Former Trump Aide’s Rampage Continues Calls Sarah Huckabee Sanders A ‘Fat Slob

The grand jury is one of two summoned by special counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation of whether President Trump or his colleagues engaged in any criminal activity prior to or during the presidential campaign, or during his presidency. Mueller was appointed special counsel to investigate possible Russian interference in the 2016 election, whether any Americans assisted in such efforts, and any other matters that arise in the course of his probe.

On Tuesday, Nunberg issued an apology to White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders, whose appearance he had viciously insulted the day before.

Despite his sour feelings toward Trump, Nunberg told Tur he believes the president defeated Hillary Clinton on his own merit.

In January 2016, Erik Prince, the founder of the private security company Blackwater, met with a Russian official close to Russian President Vladimir Putin and later described the meeting to congressional investigators as a chance encounter that was not a planned discussion of U.S. -Russia relations.

"It matches with the fact that he did have a grand jury testimony request, meaning put him in the box to say things that could later be used in court against people - which never happens to most witnesses", Melber said.

Mueller's investigation was a "witch hunt", he told the news outlets, but Nunberg also had a sneaking suspicion Trump "may have done something during the election".

"If it encouraged him to go to speak to his attorney, I am happy we prevailed upon him a more rational path", Wiley said.

What followed was a rambling, at-times incoherent series of exchanges as Nunberg asked for legal advice, opined about whether Trump colluded with Russian Federation, and relitigated an internal Trump campaign power struggle from 2015 - all live, on the air, in real time. Most recently, former Trump campaign aide Rick Gates pleaded guilty to making false statements and conspiring against the United States.

Nunberg, who lives in NY, forwarded to The Post an email listed as coming from Mueller's office asking him to appear in front of a grand jury in Washington on Friday. "But let me reiterate, I have no knowledge or involvement in Russian Collusion or any other inappropriate act".

Colbert went on to quip about the extent of Nunberg's tirade.

In an earlier Monday interview, Nunberg reportedly claimed to have "invented" the "Muslim ban", the repeated campaign trail attacks against former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.) and the border wall initiative. Minutes later, he called into CNN, where Gloria Borger interviewed him. "I'm trying to just get this over with".

Tur responded: "I'm not a lawyer, I don't know but given the circumstances you might be held in contempt of court".

Nunberg declined to confirm whether he was drunk during the TV interviews, but said that he came to his senses afterward and now intends to cooperate with Mueller's investigators. "Why do I have to spend 80 hours going over my emails" with former Trump adviser Steve Bannon and Trump associate Roger Stone. "It sounds like a pain, but he is the special counsel".
