In addition to calling him to appear before a grand jury Friday, Nunberg's subpoena calls for him to preserve documents from November 1, 2015, through the present related to several people connected to the Trump campaign.
Nunberg lambasted Trump after the firing, accusing the soon-to-be president of not having a "coherent political ideology".
"I would be willing to go in for testimony". All the same, he asked for legal advice from various cable news show hosts: "What do you think Mueller's going to do to me?" he asked Tur. But he's not the first to challenge Mueller: Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort filed a lawsuit in January challenging Mueller's authority to indict him.
But he was sacked in August that year after strong racist comments he made on his Facebook page years earlier surfaced.
Nunberg also suggested in an early afternoon interview with MSNBC that the federal authorities may have "something" on Trump, insinuating that evidence exists of illegal conduct by Trump during the election. Not much of a defense for someone who has staunchly defended the president until last evening.
The Trump campaign fired Nunberg in August 2015 after a series of racist Facebook posts came to light, and Nunberg indicated in interviews Monday there was still bad blood between the President and him but that he did not want to spend time cooperating with the investigation and Trump is right to call the probe a "witch hunt".
"Roger is my mentor". Roger is like family to me.
"I think they may..."
His comments prompted CNN anchor Erin Burnett to ask Nunberg if he had been drinking during the day.
Mueller's investigation arose in part from the findings of US intelligence agencies that Russian Federation had meddled in the election and that its goals eventually included aiding Trump, who won a surprise victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton. "I certainly can't speak to him or the lack of knowledge that he clearly has", Sanders said.
"I think they may", he told MSNBC.
"I'm working on organizing it", he said.
She then pressed Nunberg on any possible drug use, echoing accusations about him that circulating from the White House. A spokesperson for special counsel Mueller says they will decline to comment on Nunberg's allegations. That's not where we're going, " Colbert said.
On Monday, Nunberg revealed that he doesn't plan to comply with a subpoena from Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller.
"Talking to you, I have smelled alcohol on your breath", Burnett said to Nunberg live on air.
"Well, I have not had a drink", Nunberg replied.
"Do you think I would ever talk to that moron?"
