In one instance, Trump told former White House staff secretary Rob Porter that counsel Donald McGahn should deny a Times article in January saying the president had asked McGhan to fire Mueller past year.

According to the subpoena, which was sent to Nunberg by special counsel Robert Mueller, investigators want emails, text messages, work papers, telephone logs and other documents going back to November 1, 2015, 4½ months after Trump launched his campaign.

Nunberg said most of the documents related to his interactions with longtime Republican strategist Roger Stone and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.

Nunberg was speaking out to explain his frustration with the ongoing Russian Federation investigation by Robert Mueller.

Mueller subpoenaed Nunberg's communications with the individuals in late February.

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.

Eggs stored at a fertility clinic in danger due to a malfunction
Right now, hospital officials do not know how numerous eggs and embryos are viable, only that a number have been impacted. According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ARSM), as many as 6200 women froze their eggs in 2015.

In the earlier interviews, Nunberg said he thought Mueller may already have incriminating evidence on Trump directly, although he would not say what that evidence might be. "I think it would be really, really amusing if they wanted to arrest me because I don't want to spend 80 hours going over emails I had with Steve Bannon and Roger Stone", he said. I understand she was just doing her job, and I think she does a very good job under rough circumstances. Trump filed a $10 million lawsuit against Nunberg in July 2016, accusing him of violating a nondisclosure agreement, but they settled the suit one month later.

He also made headlines after insisting he plans to defy a subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller, and dared federal authorities to arrest him.

Nunberg also said he thinks former Trump foreign policy adviser Carter Page, a key figure in the Russian Federation investigation, worked with the Kremlin. He said he "despises" outgoing White House communications director Hope Hicks. Wiley said in the broadcast she was "flabbergasted" at what she was hearing.

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

"I'm not going to cooperate", Nunberg told MSNBC.

Nunberg expressed concern Monday that his lawyer, Patrick Brackley, would "dump" him for giving public statements amid the Mueller probe.

No need for concern over Iran's missiles: Pres. Rouhani
In February, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stated unequivocally that: " We will negotiate with no one on our weapons ". The meeting Monday drew protests from a number of university students in front of the foreign ministry in Tehran.

Nunberg, in a phone call to MSNBC, said a subpoena to appear before a grand jury was "absolutely ridiculous". "I'm sure the stress of the Russian Federation investigation is massive for many in the Trump orbit".

"If it were me, I would", Tapper responded, telling Nunberg: "Sometimes life and special prosecutors are not fair, I guess".

"It didn't matter if Nunberg wasn't making any sense, that he was contradicting himself or perhaps intoxicated, because the media saw this as an opportunity to attack the president".

Corey Lewandowski, Trump's campaign manager until June 2016.

A spokesman for the special counsel's office declined to comment.

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