Nunberg 'Would Highly Suggest' Trump Testifies to 'Get It Over With'


Donald Trump's former aide Sam Nunberg believes that Russian President Vladimir Putin is "taking advantage" of the USA president and that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is not without cause.

"The president has to do an interview - I would say - I would highly suggest that he does", Nunberg told MSNBC's Alex Witt.

Nunberg, who was sacked from the Trump campaign in August 2015, gave mixed signals earlier this week on whether he believes that Trump or anyone with the campaign is in legal jeopardy.

"There's a lot there", he said.

Several of the interviews went off the rails, with Nunberg taunting Mueller by announcing he would not cooperate with the investigation.

Nunberg made the comments in an interview recorded hours after testifying on Friday before the grand jury in Mueller's probe into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election. "That's why I also think the President should meet with him and get this over with".

"Did I ever hear Russian spoken in the office?"

His appearance marked a turnabout from extraordinary public statements Monday when Nunberg, in multiple interviews, balked at complying with a subpoena that sought his appearance before the grand jury as well as correspondence with other campaign officials.

A CNN interviewer told Nunberg she smelled alcohol on his breath but he denied he had been drinking. "I wanted to show what this independent counsel, this independent investigation, does to people like me". "I melted TV down that day".

Mueller subpoenaed Nunberg earlier this month for communication records with Trump and nine campaign advisers.

Nunberg, who began working for Trump in 2011, did tell ABC News that he is "very worried" about Roger Stone, a political operative who Nunberg describes as his mentor.
