Nunberg: I would go before House Intel Committee
Former Trump campaign adviser Sam Nunberg said on Monday that he would be willing to testify before the House Intelligence Committee after ranking Democrat Adam Schiff (Calif.) called for him to appear.
“I would go there, sure,” Nunberg told CNN’s Erin Burnett after she asked him whether he would be willing to appear before the committee.
In an eyebrow-raising series of media appearances, Nunberg said Monday that he would not comply with special counsel Robert Mueller’s subpoena, requesting communications with senior Trump campaign and administration officials.
“I won’t sit for 80 hours to produce every e-mail I had with Roger Stone and Steve Bannon,” Nunberg reiterated on CNN.
He delivered a slew of insults toward figures such as White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Mueller, former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and even President Trump himself.
Despite news anchors asking Nunberg whether he was afraid of going to jail for defying Mueller’s subpoena, Nunberg said he was not bothered by the idea.
“I think it would be funny if they arrested me,” he said earlier in an interview with NBC News.
Speculation has swirled around whether Nunberg’s bizarre media blitz on Monday was a result of substance abuse.
Burnett said during the interview that she smelled alcohol on Nunberg’s breath.
“I have not had a drink,” he said, adding that he had taken antidepressants.
Nunberg said his lawyer was not aware of the interviews until Nunberg took part in them.
