Aaron Blake: What on earth was Sam Nunberg doing? A few theories

Dear God An Exiled Trump Aide Has Totally Imploded On National Television

By David Adams

Speculation swirled that Nunberg had been hitting the bottle before giving several freaky interviews Monday evening, during which he repeatedly vowed to not comply with a subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller.

Sam Nunberg said he has complied with the special counsel's subpoena just two days after he struck a defiant tone and challenged Robert Mueller to arrest him for not cooperating. "I think it would be really, really amusing if they wanted to arrest me because I don't want to spend 80 hours going over emails I had with Steve Bannon and Roger Stone", he said.

Mr Nunberg also suggested he thinks the special counsel's team believes they have something on Mr Trump.

In one instance, Trump told former White House staff secretary Rob Porter that counsel Donald McGahn should deny a Times article in January saying the president had asked McGhan to fire Mueller a year ago.

Nunberg fired back with a tirade about Sanders to NY1, the NY cable news channel: "If Sarah Huckabee wants to start debasing me, she's a joke". Some people are disgusted with the current administration's ties to Russian Federation, and other supporters on websites such as Reddit and Facebook say the Russian Federation case is simply proof of the deep state agenda against President Trump; However, in what has been an interesting and long case, Mueller has made several breakthroughs that have led to charges being officially filed against some of President Trump's former aides and advisers.

The judge imposed similar bail conditions on Manafort to those already in place in the District, including home confinement. President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman has pleaded not guilty on charges including tax evasion and bank fraud.

"I'm going to surround myself only with the best and most serious people", he boasted to The Washington Post back then. According to Mueller's indictment of Russian operatives, the Russian influence campaign began when Nunberg's influence on Trump was at its nadir. "Let him arrest me", Nunberg declared to The Washington Post on Monday.

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.

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

But by the time Nunberg appeared on Melber's show Monday evening, his behavior had grown increasingly erratic - captivating everyone from West Wing aides to members of the media, and alarming some of his friends, who called him and begged him to stop. Minutes later, he called into CNN, where Gloria Borger interviewed him.

And as he wrapped up the MSNBC interview, he asked Tur, "What do you think Mueller is going to do to me?"

Virgin Australia said it was holding some flights to minimise disruptions and was working to re-accommodate those affected. A spokeswoman for Qantas told Daily Mail Australia terminal 3 had not been affected, and flights were running as normal.

On Monday, Nunberg raised eyebrows again after appearing on CNN sounding drunk and unhinged.

They also quote their colleague, Jonathan Swann, who tweeted that "n$3 obody who knows Sam thinks he has anything interesting to offer Mueller".

Mr. Nader, a Lebanese-American businessman who advises Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, the effective ruler of the Emirates, also attended a January 2017 meeting in the Seychelles that Mr. Mueller's investigators have examined. "Why do I have to spend 80 hours going over my emails" with former Trump adviser Steve Bannon and Trump associate Roger Stone.

"If it were me", Tapper replied, "I would".
