In an explosive interview Monday afternoon, former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg admitted that “Trump may have very well done something during the election with the Russians.”

Nunberg made the shocking comments during a lengthy interview with CNN’s Gloria Borger. And it came hours after he told the Washington Post he wouldn’t comply with a grand jury subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller. Mueller’s team is seeking copies of all correspondences with senior Trump campaign and administration officials.

Nunberg couldn’t say what he thought Mueller was looking at based on the questions he’d been asked by investigators.

But he followed that up with a bombshell.

“You know what? Trump may have very well done something during the election with the Russians,” he declared.

“If he did that, you know what, it’s inexcusable,” Nunberg continued.

“If he had some deal — we already know that [Trump attorney] Michael Cohen was trying to do Trump Tower Moscow,” Nunberg said, referring to a deal then in the works for a Trump-branded property in Moscow.

That deal ultimately fell through just two weeks before the Iowa caucuses. Yet even though the project never came to fruition, it caught the attention of Mueller. And his investigators are reportedly scrutinizing the Trump Organization’s efforts to secure the deal, among other business dealings before the election.

Minutes earlier, he told MSNBC’s Katy Tur that he thinks Trump “may have done something during the election.” And he claimed that Mueller’s team may already have evidence of it.

He reiterated those statements in yet another interview on CNN Monday afternoon. “They know something on [Trump] … I don’t know what it is, and perhaps I’m wrong, but he did something,” he told Jake Tapper.

The interview essentially became a complete meltdown on live TV. Nunberg told Tapper that former Trump aide Carter Page had “colluded with the Russians” during the campaign. He also said Mueller believes Trump ally Roger Stone colluded with Russia.

Still, Nunberg is refusing to comply with Mueller’s subpoena. And he went as far as daring the special counsel to force his cooperation.

“I’m not cooperating,” he told CNN. “Arrest me.”

Nunberg may want to be more careful with what he wishes for — because this time, he might just get it.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer

Washington (AFP) - Republicans in the US Senate prevented action Thursday on a bill to address domestic terrorism in the wake of a racist massacre at a grocery store in upstate New York.

Democrats had been expecting defeat but were seeking to use the procedural vote to highlight Republican opposition to tougher gun control measures following a second massacre at a Texas elementary school on Tuesday.

The totally needless killing of 19 school children and two teachers in the latest school shooting shows once again that we're a nation on the verge of total disaster.

Never hesitant to nail hypocritical Republicans, Jimmy Kimmel began his show without an audience on Wednesday and delivered a poignant monologue about the massacre at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas that left 19 children and two teachers dead. Kimmel blasted feckless Republicans by noting most Americans support common-sense gun laws, but the legislation stalls “because our cowardly leaders just aren’t listening to us ― they’re listening to the NRA.”
