Ex-Trump aide Nunberg says will not comply with Russian Federation probe subpoena

08 March 2018

Nunberg said he was ultimately swayed by the points some of the interviewers and TV guests he spoke with on Monday raised, notably former U.S. attorney Barbara McQuade, who warned Nunberg on MSNBC he could be charged with contempt.

Nunberg provided the Post with a copy of his two-page grand jury subpoena, which also sought documents related to Trump and nine others, including departing White House communications director Hope Hicks, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and adviser Roger Stone.

U-turned on his earlier position of not complying with the Russian Federation investigation, telling the Associated Press: "I'm going to end up cooperating with [the grand jury]".

Still, Nunberg is refusing to comply with Mueller's subpoena. "I'm trying to just get this over with".

"Oh, Sam, I think your dentist is going to dump you right now", the comedian replied. "I'm not gonna do it!"

US Pacific Fleet commander, in Tokyo, says China's military budget lacks transparency
China's defence budget nearly grew as much as its GDP in the past two years as far as percentage points are concerned. Li said China "remains the largest developing country in the world" and faces "a number of acute problems".

"I think the media was very fair, I don't think they did anything inappropriate", he said.

It's unclear why Nunberg so quickly changed his mind. He denied anyone had pressured him, claiming he came to this decision only hours earlier.

Melber said Nunberg was "befuddling". The premise for all the interviews Monday was his refusal to comply with a subpoena. Let me just give you the questions and you can categorically answer them. Nunberg first appeared in the afternoon with MSNBC's Katy Tur, then in back-to-back phone interviews with CNN, including one with Jake Tapper. Some feared he was under the influence of alcohol or had become mentally unwell.

Kushner's most powerful patron, the president himself, has wavered recently on whether his daughter and son-in-law belong in the White House anymore.

With each interview, reporters seemed concerned about Nunberg's actions, warning him that he could face real legal trouble for flaunting Mueller's subpoena and going on a national stage to defy an investigation.

Meanwhile, Liverpool will welcome Fc Porto in the second leg of the round of 16 Champions league game at Anfield tonight. We're gutted but maybe at 2-0 we should have settled for two goals and shut up shop and tried to frustrate them.

"I'm not cooperating", he told CNN.

"If you're listening Sam, get help". Mr. Nunberg denied having had any drink, claiming he was on antidepressant medication.

"Here's what it was: A sad, epic meltdown - a troubled Trump flunky, pecked at and picked apart like roadkill on the Russia Interstate, in his last gasps of public fame and shame", Allen and VandeHei wrote in a piece called "Awful scandal porn: Nunberg gone wild".

It comes after Trump said Tuesday at the White House that Russians did interfere in America's last presidential election - and other countries probably did too - but cautioned that the United States will counteract any attempt at meddling in the November 2018 midterms.
