Washington, DC, United States (4E) – Sam Nunberg, a former aide in the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald Trump fired for posting racist diatribes on social media, describes the president as “an idiot” who might have done something illegal in collusion with the Russians during the campaign.
“I think he may have done something during the election,” said Nunberg when asked by media about collusion between Trump and Russia.
“I think (Special Counsel Robert) Mueller has enough on Trump,” he said. “He (Mueller) doesn’t need me to start giving him information.”
He said Mueller believes the president is “the Manchurian Candidate,” referring to the popular 1959 book of the same title about the son of a prominent U.S. political family brainwashed into becoming a communist assassin. The book has since been made into two movies.
Nunberg also accused former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page of colluding with Russians.
“I am not a fan of Donald Trump,” he noted. “He treated me like crap, OK?”
The Trump campaign fired Nunberg in 2015 for a slew of racist posts on social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook.
Nunberg hit the headlines Monday when he declared his intent to defy a subpoena from Mueller demanding his correspondences with Trump and nine other former senior campaign or White House officials.
“Screw that,” said Nunberg of the subpoena. “Why do I have to go? Why? For what?”
He affirmed he wouldn’t appear before a grand jury or spend time reviewing his communications to comply with the subpoena.
“I’m not cooperating. Arrest me,” Nunberg said. “You want to arrest me? Arrest me.”
“They know something on him (Trump),” said Nunberg. “… perhaps I’m wrong, but he did something.”
He blamed the president for this imbroglio.
“Donald Trump caused this because he’s an idiot,” said Nunberg.
Nunberg said he refuses to cooperate with the subpoena because he believes investigators want him to reveal dirt about controversial Trump ally Roger Stone, who Nunberg called his mentor.
“They want me to testify against Roger,” said Nunberg. “They want me to say that Roger was going around telling people he was colluding with Julian Assange.”
