Sam Nunberg (born June 21, 1981) is a former political advisor to then-presidential candidate Donald Trump and the Trump campaign. He has been subpoenaed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. On March 5, 2018 Nunberg stated in studio interviews within the same afternoon on MSNBC and CNN that he would defy Mueller's subpoena.
While working for the Mitt Romney 2008 presidential campaign, Nunberg was hired by Jay Sekulow to work with the American Center for Law & Justice in an attempt to stop the construction of the Park51 mosque. It was there that he met Roger Stone, whom he has described as his mentor.
In February 2014, Nunberg was fired by Trump after he arranged a Buzzfeed interview of Trump that ended up being highly critical of Trump.
In February 2015, Nunberg was rehired by Trump, as a communications adviser for the Trump campaign. Nunberg, along with Stone, helped prepare the candidate for the first Republican debate, on August 6, 2015. Nunberg was fired later that month after some of his old Facebook posts surfaced which contained ethnic comments.
In July 2016, Trump sued Nunberg for $10 million, accusing Nunberg of violating a confidentiality agreement by leaking information to the New York Post. In a legal response, Nunberg said that Trump might have illegally funneled corporate money into the campaign. Trump and Nunberg settled their legal dispute in August 2016.
Regarding the Robert Mueller investigation, when asked in March 2018 whether he believed that the special counsel may have something on Trump, Nunberg responded, "I think they may." He added: "I think that he may have done something during the election. But I don't know that for sure." He also said "I have no knowledge or involvement in Russian Collusion or any other inappropriate act" and that: "Donald Trump won this election on his own. He campaigned his ass off. And there is nobody who hates him more than me."
Regarding Trump's former foreign-policy advisor Carter Page, Nunberg said that he believed "Carter Page did collude with the Russians." Nunberg first stated that he was not going to cooperate with Mueller's grand jury subpoena, referring to the subpoenas as "ridiculous". Wikipedia
