He also said he would not give investigators old campaign emails, which he has been ordered to hand over in a subpoena. OK fine, yeah, she's unattractive, she's a fat slob. "He said terrible things about Sarah Huckabee Sanders, says he wants to fight Corey Lewandowski in an alley ... he also had awful things to say about Carter Page". He then said he would reject a sweeping demand from Mueller for communications between him and top Trump advisers.
By the time Monday afternoon rolled around, it was glaringly obvious that Nunberg was a troubled man possibly incapacitated by drugs or drink.
Burnett: I'm just trying to understand what happened today.
And by the way, I've been very clear about this: they can take down Trump!
If this is the quality of a source the media are willing put out in public, a source they are willing to hand the microphone and spotlight to, a source they are willing to interview on almost a dozen occasions, imagine how low in the gutter the media are willing to reach when it comes to their unnamed sources - those sleazy figures who work in the shadows to gift the media with screaming anti-Trump headlines that usually end up on the ever-growing fake news pile. And Jake, I don't know what it is. "Everything I have to go through now - I'm smart enough not to involve alcohol". That's why I started calling around and saying I'm not giving them shit. "I have enormous respect for her". She's a fat slob. Mueller's latest move either means he is wrapping up his investigation but taking an unnecessarily harsh look at a few remaining players, or he is desperate, has nothing on Trump and is grasping at straws. Like, why is Sarah Huckabee Sanders "a slob"?
"It was a rude comment".
"I was told that that idiot had offered to send women up to Trump's room, but Trump didn't want it". Did I sound drunk? "I think that he may have done something during the election, but I don't know that for sure".
Uh, I don't wanna get into it.
Yeah, it was at night. "I wasn't very good after getting fired". He later told CNN that Mueller "thinks Trump is the Manchurian candidate". I'm not getting into it.

Ex-Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page called another former aide's charge that he colluded with the Kremlin "laughable" - even as he remains a focus of the special counsel's probe into Russian election meddling.
But Nunberg denied he had drank anything or that he had taken anything other than his medication. Still, the Trump White House plans to cooperate with the Muller investigation. If you've ever worked for Trump, Special Counsel Robert Mueller "is a daytime horror movie", Noah said.
Mueller had better come and get him if that's the case, but he wouldn't really do that, would he?
The networks scrambled to book Nunberg following that bombshell declaration, allowing him to call in remotely and ramble for large blocks of time in which he contradicted himself, insulted various former colleagues and White House officials, asked two anchors for legal advice and called Mueller a "moron". "I don't think I require any protection", Stone said.
He was all over the place explaining his thinking in cable news interviews.
Sam Nunberg appeared drunk on CNN. "Roger and I were treated like crap by Donald Trump, OK?"
On Tuesday, Nunberg issued an apology to White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders, whose appearance he had viciously insulted the day before. Anything further on what his actions are? "It reflects poorly on the person who makes the personal accusation", former GOP New York Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey said.
CNN's Erin Burnett told Nunberg during her interview with him that she smelled alcohol on his breath.
Nunberg is the first witness in the ongoing federal Russian Federation investigation to openly promise to defy a subpoena. He later told reporters he would comply with the subpoena. Backward reels the mind to Susan McDougal, who was a business partner with Bill Clinton, and her refusal to answer questions about the then-president's financial records.
In one of his CNN interviews, he said Trump sometimes acted like "an idiot", noting that he met previous year with Russian leaders inside the Oval Office, where he shared classified intelligence.
