Former Campaign Aide Admits Trump May Have Colluded with Russia

After forwarding a subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller to the Washington Post, former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg gave MSNBC a freewheeling interview that included his belief that his onetime boss may be guilty of collusion with the Russians.


After admitting to host Katy Tur that he’d been interviewed by Mueller’s investigators, the host asked Nunberg if he believes the special counsel “has anything” on Trump.

“I think they may,” the ex-aide responded. “I think he may have done something during the election. But I don’t know that for sure.” 

This isn’t the first time Nunberg’s given a rambling MSNBC interview. Last week, he called presidential adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner a “weak link” who has done “nefarious things,” and earlier this year, called Trump an “idiot” and a “complete pain in the ass to work for.” In the latter interview, which was conducted by host Joy Ann Reid, many noted that Nunberg appeared to be intoxicated.
