MSNBC's Joe Scarborough recounted Monday's multiple interviews with Sam Nunberg in which the former Trump campaign aide appeared to go off the rails while talking about special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation and Russian Federation, with Scarborough saying he "can't help but feel for these people" who are in legal trouble linked to their involvement in the Trump campaign.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller's process of investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation took an interesting turn Monday when a former Trump aide released a subpoena he had received from Mueller and threatened to tear it up on national television.
The former campaign manager said he believes Mueller "thinks that Trump is the Manchurian Candidate", an assessment that Nunberg disagrees with. "But I don't know that for sure". "I don't know why he does", Nunberg said.
"I should give them every email from November 1st of 2015 from perpetuity", Nunberg continued incredulously, "why do I have to give that to the government?"
On Monday, McDougal told the Washington Post she wouldn't do anything differently but warned Nunberg that going to jail isn't easy.
I joined the set after Sam Nunberg referenced his racially offensive statements that got him fired from the Trump campaign, dismissing their relevance because they wouldn't have lost Trump a vote. "I think that he may have done something during the election", Sam Nunberg told MSNBC.

The FBI has launched an investigation into the mid-air drama, and possible charges have been referred to the prosecutor's office. Law enforcement officials met the flight at the gate where they detained the woman, whose identity was not immediately released.
Since then, Mr Mueller has demanded all of his records and communications with people on the campaign, which Mr Nunberg said would take too much time to assemble.
"So if she wants to start attacking me, she can do that".
"Mueller thinks Trump is the Manchurian Candidate, and I will tell you I disagree with that". He said his lawyer thought his performance "was somewhat entertaining" and told Nunberg he knew he was "going to comply the whole time". "Just my opinion. Because it sounds like pain, but he is the special counsel and he does have the long arm of the law". I'm sure the stress of the Russian Federation investigation is massive for many in the Trump orbit.
Manafort, who served as Trump's campaign chairman, has been slapped with almost three dozen indictments stemming from the Mueller investigation which range from fraud to money laundering charges.
Still, Nunberg is refusing to comply with Mueller's subpoena.
