In a truly unexpected, incredibly brave, and unquestionably very good legal move, former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg announced on Monday that he will not comply with a grand jury subpoena in the Russia investigation but thank you for asking!
The Washington Post was first to break the news that Nunberg planned to refuse the subpoena from the office of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III. “Let him arrest me,” Nunberg told the Post. “Mr. Mueller should understand I am not going in on Friday.”
“I’m not spending 80 hours going over my emails with Roger Stone and Steve Bannon and producing them,” he continued. “Donald Trump won this election on his own. He campaigned his ass off. And there is nobody who hates him more than me.”
Then he called into MSNBC and CNN and got really loose and really free in a way that is (dangerously) inspiring to me, personally.
I don’t know what happened after Nunberg hung up, but I can only imagine that he ripped open his shirt, let out a primal, triumphant shriek, and......
Thank you for continuing to share your journey with us, Sam!
