UAE advisor with ties to Trump aides now cooperating with Mueller

Nunberg appeared on several cable news shows Monday after he told The Washington Post he was not going to comply with a subpoena from special counsel Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russian Federation probe MORE, requesting Nunberg's past communications with senior Trump campaign and administration officials.

That meeting, which happened days before Mr. Trump took office, the Times reported, involved a Russian investor with ties to Russian president Vladimir Putin and Erik Prince, who informally advised Mr. Trump's campaign during the transition. He said he had been summoned to appear before a grand jury on Friday but would not, nor would he produce evidence.

Hours later, Nunberg reversed course and told the Associated Press he was most likely "going to end up cooperating" with the probe.

A source close to the Trump campaign told Fox News that Nunberg was sacked twice "for good reason" and known to be erratic, referring to his media appearances Monday. White House officials attacked his credibility Monday and characterized his media appearances as unhinged. "He's getting indicted. At least Jared [Kushner], maybe Trump", he said, declining to elaborate on what charges he thought either might face. Rather than daring the special prosecutor to throw him in jail and repeatedly asserting that he is "not cooperating", Nunberg sounded chastened and said he was diligently working to aggregate the emails the subpoena demanded. Nunberg and his lawyer are free to petition Mueller to narrow the scope of the subpoena. He added: "Trump may have very well done something during the election. I could be wrong, by the way".

Mr. Nunberg's time with the Trump campaign was brief but consequential. He relayed his impression that Mueller has something quite serious on Trump, which is not exactly a surprise, but someone from anywhere near his corner admitting it is new.

"I made my point, I got my venting out", he said. "I thought it would be amusing". Each interview seemed intent upon out-shocking the last. "I think that he may have done something during the election", Nunberg responded.

Mr. Nunberg's doctors must have calmed him down, and his lawyers must have reminded him that the remedy for the persistent willful failure to comply with a grand jury subpoena is incarceration.

I shouldn't say reality show, it's more like a game show'. "These will be brief remarks because words truly fail me", Hamill said. Mark Hamill has never looked so happy to use Star Wars puns.

Nader has reportedly provided information to the grand jury.

McDougal said in an interview Monday that she would not do anything differently - though Nunberg should know that being incarcerated is no joke.

"It is not an easy thing to do", McDougal said. "If you work in Gonzo-style politics, this is what you do".

Was the Sam Nunberg story too good to pass up, or should the networks and media outlets he contacted have resisted the urge to put him on the air on Monday? "The difference is, I didn't know anything".

Nader also attended meetings in the White House with Kushner and Bannon. Aides in the West Wing voiced frustration that Nunberg had thrust Russian Federation back into the headlines while also laughing at what they considered his lack of discipline.

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.

Sanders also played down Nunberg's importance. "So, let me just give you the question again, You haven't had a drink?"
