Before wrapping up his unhinged statements at one of his interviews, CNN host Erin Burnett asked Nunberg whether he had been drinking because she could smell alcohol on his breath.

After insisting that he wouldn't spend "80 hours" sifting through his emails to comply with Mueller's subpoena as Nunberg said he is now in the process of "sifting through and copying his emails"-crediting MSNBC guest Professor Maya Wiley for convincing him to do so while on-air".

A former campaign aide to Donald Trump appears to have changed his mind and will not fight a subpoena he says he has received in the Russian Federation investigation - after daring special counsel Robert Mueller to arrest him in multiple media appearances.

Fresh off a series of tumultuous TV interviews, ex-Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg revealed Tuesday that he is contemplating seeking treatment for alcohol abuse. "I think that he may have done something during the election", Nunberg responded. "And there is nobody who hates him more than me".

"I don't feel exploited", he said on Wednesday, referring to his appearances on Monday, adding "I was playing everywhere". Getting subpoenaed by Robert Mueller, who has demanded Nunberg's cooperation with his investigation into alleged collusion between Trump's motley crew and Russian Federation.

Roger StoneRoger Stone is a former adviser to president Trump's presidential campaign, and although he left the campaign at the end of 2015, he has said he remained "a confidant to the President".

Nunberg also admitted he "probably" called the president an "idiot" during a conversation with former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, according to Wolff's reporting.

By December of that year, Nunberg was saying that Trump's campaign was being led in the wrong direction and predicted that Trump would not win the Republican nomination.

At times, Nunberg appeared to contradict himself when it came to whether he believed there was any basis for Mueller's investigation.

"Oh, Sam, I think your dentist is going to dump you right now", the comedian replied. "I think it would be amusing if they arrest me". 'Officer, I'm a busy man, I don't have time to walk you out to the third storage drain north of my barn!

BuzzFeed News documented Nunberg's early involvement with Trump's political aspirations, in a 2014 article.

Ms Sanders pushed back against these claims at a White House press briefing, saying Mr Nunberg was "incorrect" and that there was no collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign. Initially declaring that he would defy Mueller's subpoena, the defiant Nunberg said, "Let him arrest me", during an interview with The Washington Post.

Even if they get this guy on the stand, even if he turns over all kinds of information about Donald Trump, he's already kind of destroyed his credibility to the point that I don't think Mueller's going to take anything that this nut job has to say very seriously. Nunberg asked NBC News reporter Katy Tur on Monday afternoon after he received a subpoena. Interviewer Jake Tapper suggested that sometimes life and special prosecutors aren't fair, and that if he were in Nunberg's position, he would cooperate.
