Mueller subpoenas massive trove of documents from Trump and his campaign

"Because what they sent me was absolutely ridiculous". Well, former Trump campaign aide Sam Numberg received this subpoena, and he's incensed.

Trump responded this morning on Twitter, accusing the Obama administration of launching an investigation "with zero proof of wrongdoing", which he said was "unprecedented" and "bigger than Watergate".

He also showed the Post a copy of what appeared to be his subpoena, the newspaper reported, which included a list of names of those about whom the special counsel is seeking information.

Since then, Mueller has demanded all of his records and communications with people on the campaign, which Nunberg said would take too much time to assemble. Should I spend 50 hours going over all my emails with Roger [Stone] and Steve Bannon ... with Hope Hicks, with Corey Lewandowski? "Mr. Trump's right, it's a witch hunt". When Trump began to raise the possibility of running again in 2014, Nunberg arranged for a Buzzfeed profile that ended up painting an unflattering image of a "fake campaign" in the making.

"Donald Trump won this election on his own", Nunberg told The Post.

"I think he may have done something during the election", Nunberg told MSNBC.

"Let him arrest me", he said.

Nunberg, a protégé of veteran political operative Roger Stone, was Trump's political adviser prior to the start of his White House run.

But Nunberg's blanket phone interviews on television made that task hard on Monday. "I think that Carter Page is a weird dude - I don't think he should have been involved in that campaign", he said. "Screw that. Why do I have to go?" he told CNN.

Nunberg added that he plans to defy a subpoena from Mueller to appear before a grand jury in Washington this Friday. He also said his lawyer would likely "dump me".

"They want me to testify against Roger", Nunberg said.

"I'm not going to build the case that they are trying to build".

White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders said she wouldn't weigh in on Nunberg's decision to refuse the subpoena because he never worked at the White House. It's not surprising, then, that the special counsel would be interested in communications between Stone and Nunberg, especially since Nunberg's early political work for Trump stretches back to 2014.
