While not having to see Donald Trump or work alongside him anymore is surely a reason to be happy, many of Trump’s former aides are happy to no longer work with Trump just because of how Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been closing in.
Yesterday, Sam Nunberg, who was one of the president’s first aides in his presidential campaign, gave an extensive testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, which will be used in the Russia probe investigation. In an interview with NBC News, Nunberg warned Trump and his inner circle:
They are doing an exhaustive investigation.”
Nunberg also stated that the investigation appears “narrowly focused on collusion.” He said:
If I were the White House, I would be concerned.”
While on NBC News, Nunberg also explained how he’d been grilled for over four hours during the testimony. According to the report:
In the interview with the Senate Intelligence Committee, Nunberg said he was asked about numerous former campaign staff members, the president’s children and other associates including: Roger Stone, Jerome Corsi, Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, Tom Barrack, Michael Cohen, Steve Bannon, Donald Trump Jr and Eric Trump. He was also asked about Trump’s relationship with Aras Agalarov, a Russian oligarch, and his pop-singer son, Emin, who helped set up the 2016 Trump Tower meeting.
Nunberg said he was not asked about the president’s son-in-law and current White House adviser, Jared Kushner.
Among the other topics raised Friday, Nunberg said, were the 2016 meeting in Trump Tower in New York with Trump Jr, Manafort, Kushner and a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer offering them the promise of ‘dirt’ on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton; Trump’s travel to Moscow in 2013 for the Miss Universe pageant; the company’s interest in building a tower in the Russian capital.”
Nunberg’s admission that the White House has something to worry about is critical, and it’s likely that Trump knows it, too. We all know that whenever Trump is backed into a corner and stressed out, his behavior only becomes more unhinged — and that’s exactly what we’ve been seeing from the president as of late.
