Top Emirates adviser cooperating with Mueller

Special counsel Robert Mueller

Sam Nunberg, a former political aide to President Trump, said on Monday he would refuse to comply with a subpoena to testify before a grand jury in USA special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 US election campaign.

Mr Nunberg was sacked from the Trump campaign in 2015, amid reports that he had made racist comments on Facebook.

Nader had also attended a December 2016 meeting in NY between senior Trump advisers and the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, according to a person familiar with the matter.

"Carter Page was colluding with the Russians", Nunberg told CNN.

He promised to refuse a subpoena he says he received that compels him to meet with a grand jury, dared Mueller to arrest him for contempt, and speculated wildly about the Trump team's knowledge of Russian meddling in the 2016 election. At that point, Trump had already been on the campaign trail for several months.

Nunberg eventually met Roger Stone, the political operative who played a large role in shaping Trump's unapologetic and offensive campaign style.

In a series of unusual interviews, Nunberg unleashed his unfiltered thoughts on Monday about Mueller's investigation into possible coordination between members of the Trump campaign and Russians set on influencing the 2016 election.

A top adviser to the United Arab Emirates who was present at meetings with Trump associates is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, the New York Times reports. "I am going to cooperate with whatever they want", he told CNN in reference to Mueller's subpoena.

"You'd rather possibly spend a year in jail than spend 80 hours going through emails?" she asked.

Sanders said that whether Nunberg complies with the subpoena or not, the White House would continue working with Mueller in hopes of bringing the investigation to a swift conclusion. "Let me just give them what they want because there's nothing there anyway". He later told CNN that Mueller "thinks Trump is the Manchurian candidate".

"Screw that", he told Gloria Borger on CNN.

"Sam's his own man", Stone said of Nunberg's weird behavior.

Interviewer after interviewer emphasized that Nunberg could be facing serious legal jeopardy.

Nunberg denied he had been drinking and said he wasn't on anything "besides my meds - antidepressants".

"As we said many times before, there was no collusion with the Trump campaign", said press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

As for Nunberg's complaints about how much time complying with the subpoena would take, Wiley was incredulous.

"I do believe that Donald Trump and Roger Stone are right: No publicity is bad publicity", Mr. Nunberg said.

Apparently, it was something he heard on MSNBC's "The Beat with Ari Melber" that led him to reconsider his position. "Everything I have to go through now - I'm smart enough not to involve alcohol".

Axios' Mike Allen and Jim VandeHei deemed Nunberg's broadcast comments "awful scandal porn". She reminded reporters that Nunberg had never worked in the White House.
