Not even two short weeks after Sam Nunberg met with Robert Mueller, Comrade Stupid’s disgraced (former) aide has taken a page from fellow former adviser Crazy Carter Page’s strategy: keep talking.
Last night, Little Nutty Nunberg (I’m helping Comrade Trump choose a nickname) suggested to multiple cable news outlets that Mueller could have evidence tying the Candidate Stupid’s 2016 Goat Rodeo run to Russian interference.
To CNN’s Jake Tapper:
“I think they may. I think that he may have done something during the election.”
Nutty Nunberg says that he plans to defy a subpoena from Mueller to appear before a grand jury in D.C. this Friday.
To the WaPo:
“Let him arrest me. Mr. Mueller should understand I am not going in on Friday.”
Then to Katy Tur on NBC:
“I’m not going to cooperate when they . . . want me to come in to a grand jury, for them to insinuate that Roger Stone was colluding with Julian Assange. Roger is my mentor. Roger is like family to me. I’m not going to do it.”
Finally, CNN’s Erin Burnett said during an on-set interview with Nunberg,
“Talking to you, I have smelled alcohol on your breath. … I know it’s awkward.”
Nunberg replied he hadn’t consumed anything “besides my meds —
antidepressants. Is that OK?”‘
So what can we discern from all this? Nutty Nunberg’s gonna find himself between a rockhead and hard time (Trump and Mueller), and that’s not a place anyone wants to be.
