The subpoena requests communications from President Trump dating back to November 2015

Sam Nunberg, a former campaign aide of US President Donald Trump, said on Monday that he won't comply with a subpoena issued by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team over Russian Federation investigation.

"If he had some deal - we already know that [Trump attorney] Michael Cohen was trying to do Trump Tower Moscow", Nunberg said, referring to a deal then in the works for a Trump-branded property in Moscow.

"This is so ridiculous".

"I'm not spending 80 hours going over my emails with Roger Stone and Steve Bannon and producing them", Nunberg said.

When asked by Tur whether he believes Mueller's investigators in the Russian Federation probe have something on the president, Nunberg said: "I think they may".

Former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg says that he'll probably end up cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller after all.

He added that Mueller's team also asked for communications with former Trump campaign staffers Hope Hicks and Corey Lewandowski.

Nunberg worked for Trump from 2011 to 2015.

Nunberg seemed to indicate in the interview Monday evening that he was willing to cooperate on some level, while continuing to express his opposition to the request on those varying grounds.

As for his subpoena, Nunberg expressed amusement at the notion that he can be arrested for refusing to comply with the subpoena. "I smell alcohol on your breath", she said.

Roger Stone commented on Sam Nunberg's baffling TV appearances. "He was a name on a list", Nunberg said.

He reiterated those statements in yet another interview on CNN Monday afternoon.

Nunberg said his lawyer was not aware of the interviews until Nunberg took part in them.

But Mueller's list of questions for Nunberg likely just got a bit longer. But he later said he wasn't sure what Trump had done, or what evidence Mueller has. He also viciously lashed out at President Trump, saying, "I hate the guy". "Putin is too smart to collude with Donald Trump". "They want me in there for a grand jury for testimony about Roger Stone". Nunberg rejected any notion that Trump had colluded with Russians. "I don't think it's meaningful what he has to say on CNN, for the liability of Carter Page or the president".

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

"They want me over at the grand jury".

At Monday's daily press briefing, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders repeated what she's said all along: "There was no collusion with the Trump campaign". "Let him arrest me,"Nunberg said during the WaPo interview".
