Former President Trump campaign aide making accusations

You've probably already heard about former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg's odd odyssey through the talk show circuit Monday, in which he said he was going to ignore Robert Mueller's subpoena.

Sam Nunberg, who was sacked from the Trump campaign in 2015 over racially charged Facebook posts, dropped the bombshell claim in interviews with USA news networks.

"I'm going to end up cooperating with them", he said. Nunberg was a communications adviser for the campaign and worked closely with longtime Trump associate and political trickster Roger Stone.

"Why do I have to do it?"

Nunberg is no friend of Trump, who fired him after a short period as an advisor. "Why would you do this?' To me it's pretty cool to be the first", Nunberg said.

"Do you know the way I've been treated by Donald Trump?".

Nunberg says that the request is too onerous for him.

He was sacked in August 2015, over racially charged Facebook posts, after he and Stone lost a internal power struggle with then-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

"I definitely think he doesn't know that for sure because he's incorrect".

Ex-Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page called another former aide's charge that he colluded with the Kremlin "laughable" - even as he remains a focus of the special counsel's probe into Russian election meddling.

Nunberg also said he thinks former Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page, a key figure in the Russian Federation investigation, worked with the Kremlin.

However in an earlier interview with CNN's Gloria Borger he appeared to contradict himself while giving a defiant response as to why he wasn't complying with the grand jury subpoena.

"Let's see what Mr. Mueller does".

In one instance, Trump told an aide that McGahn should issue a statement denying a New York Times article in January that said the White House counsel told investigators the president had once asked him to fire Mueller.

"Donald Trump won this election on his own". And he said White House press secretary Sarah Sanders should "shut her mouth".

Nunberg told The Washington Post that he was subpoenaed to appear Friday before a grand jury in Washington.

It was the order to maintain the emails and documents and the reference to Stone, a man Nunberg described as his mentor and father figure, that really seemed to upset Nunberg.

"I think they may... Why do I have to spend 80 hours going over my emails that I've had with Steve Bannon and with Roger Stone?". Their president has a 33% approval rating.

Nunberg also said Trump's foreign policy aide Carter Page was also colluding with Russian Federation, but he undermined Page's role in it.
