‘Let Him Arrest Me’

Former Trump Campaign Aide Refuses to Comply With Subpoena

Former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg told The Washington Post that he has been subpoenaed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller to appear in front of a federal grand jury on Friday, but he will refuse to go. Nunberg also gave the Post a copy of his subpoena, which is seeking communications “related to President Trump and nine other people”—including Hope Hicks, Michael Cohen, Stephen Bannon, Corey Lewandowski, and Roger Stone. Nunberg claimed that he would be a no-show at the grand jury, and will not provide the documents. “Let him arrest me,” Nunberg told the Post. “Mr. Mueller should understand I am not going in on Friday.” Nunberg also said he plans to go on Bloomberg TV and “tear up the subpoena.” “I’m not spending 80 hours going over my emails with Roger Stone and Steve Bannon and producing them,” he said, adding that “there is nobody who hates [Trump] more than me.” Nunberg also claimed that Putin is “too smart” to collude with Trump. In the immediate aftermath of the released report, he told MSNBC's Katy Tur: “I think it would be funny if they arrest me.”
