After all that, ex-Trump aide arrives for grand jury

10 March 2018

A former Trump campaign aide appeared for hours before a federal grand jury Friday, after he defiantly insisted in a series of news interviews just days earlier that he meant to defy a subpoena in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

Nunberg was accompanied by his lawyer, and a court marshal led them into the grand jury area at 9:30 a.m. ET., local media reported.

Sam Nunberg spent more than six hours inside the federal courthouse in Washington.

Nunberg, who was seen by reporters arriving at the US District Court in Washington on Friday, had been subpoenaed by a grand jury but in a daylong televised circus on Monday he said he would ignore the order, even at the risk of going to jail.

He said he had worked for hours to produce the thousands of emails and other communications requested by Mueller, who is investigating whether the Trump campaign improperly coordinated with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election. Five people, including Flynn, have pleaded guilty.

The grand jurors and prosecutors are bound by secrecy regarding what happens in their proceedings, though witnesses are able to speak about their interactions with a grand jury.

One deadline they floated was 60 days after said meeting, the source told the Journal.

Mueller requested Nunberg's communication with Trump and nine Trump associates from November 1, 2015.

Nunberg, who is now an outspoken Trump critic, has said that Trump did not use prostitutes in Moscow.

During the 2016 campaign, Stone appeared to predict that WikiLeaks would soon release damaging information about Hillary Clinton, including stating that it would be Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta's "time in the barrel" ahead of the WikiLeaks' release of Podesta's emails.

Russian Federation has denied the allegations and Trump has said there was no collusion between Moscow and his campaign.
