And he blamed Trump for the investigation into Russian Federation meddling, telling MSNBC that he was "responsible for this investigation. because he was so stupid".

George Nader, a Lebanese American business who helped organize and attended the Seychelles meeting, has testified on the matter before a grand jury gathering evidence about discussions between the Trump transition team and emissaries of the Kremlin, as part of Mueller's investigation into Russian efforts to interfere with the 2016 election.

As well as the Trump Tower negotiations, Cohen is reported to have received the Ukraine peace proposal plan from a Ukrainian lawmaker a week after Trump took office.

On live television, CNN's Erin Burnett told viewers that she smelled alcohol on Nunberg's breath, and some have speculated that he was drinking or on drugs during the media appearances.

Nunberg received a subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller

However, "legal experts said Mr. Trump's contact with the men most likely did not rise to the level of witness tampering", according to the report, though they reported the conversations because they "viewed them as potentially a problem".

"I think the media was very fair, I don't think they did anything inappropriate", he said. He also told CNN's Gloria Borger, "Screw that". He added that based on questions prosecutors put to him, "It's my impression that they may have something on him".

Nunberg's comments about the president were just a slice of the bombshell claims he made on the air Monday.

To say Sam Nunberg wasn't happy to receive a subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller on Monday would be an understatement.

Carter Page, a former Trump campaign aide.

Hope Hicks, who resigned last week as Trump's communications director. And he said White House press secretary Sarah Sanders should "shut her mouth". I assume he has sought the advice and counsel of his lawyer.

Nunberg acknowledged to Bloomberg that he had strategized how to reverse damage to his reputation from his phoned-in cable news appearances.

McGahn did not issue an statement and he "later had to remind the president that he had indeed asked Mr. McGahn to see that Mr. Mueller was dismissed", the Times report said. "I'm not cooperating", he said later as he challenged officials to charge him. "His freewheeling responses to questions may result in more grief coming his way if it contradicts what he has said before or what the evidence is showing". Nunberg rejected any notion that Trump had colluded with Russians.

And despite Mueller's "witch hunt", despite Putin's smarts and Trump's apparent lack thereof, Nunberg said he still has a amusing feeling Trump did "something" shady during the 2016 election.

The US intelligence community determined in January 2017 that Russian intelligence provided the hacked emails to WikiLeaks, which Assange denies.
