The stated rationale for this investigation, remember, was possible "collusion" - it was the word of the moment several months ago - between Donald Trump (or at least his campaign) and Vladimir Putin (or at least nefarious Russian actors standing in for Putin).
Nunberg told Bloomberg most of the communications he turned over to Mueller are from Stone and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, and that none of the documents were from Page, Hicks, or former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Speaking to anchor Josh Robin, Nunberg said: "She's a joke". "To which I said, 'Absolutely nyet!". He's here also to see someone from the Emirati delegation. "I'm sure the stress of the Russian Federation investigation is massive for many in the Trump orbit". James Comey, who was then the FBI director, said Trump asked him for his loyalty and to end the investigation into his first national security adviser, Michael Flynn. "I hope what I gave him was a sense of humanity we need now more than ever in this country".
"I'm not cooperating" with Mueller, he told Tapper. He said that she's a slob because she does Trump's "dirty business". Nader represented the UAE's crown prince at the meeting, which US intelligence agencies at the time found suspicious.
Trump brought up Priebus' October interview with the special counsel's office, the people said, and Priebus replied that the investigators were courteous and professional. "I don't know why he went around trying to hide it when he shouldn't have". That effort was not successful, according to Prince's statements in a subsequent deposition.
He and Nunberg never overlapped on the Trump campaign.
If Nunberg really does harbor such resentment toward Trump, maybe publicly speculating about Trump having had an arrangement with Russian Federation and having known about the Trump Tower meeting is one final piece of revenge.
The Times also reported Nader, who advises Emirates' Crown Prince Mohammad Zayed Al-Nahyan, attended a January 2017 meeting that Mueller's team has probed. "He went dark", one of the sources said.
Kushner, long the second-most powerful man in the West Wing, is under siege. The Gallup poll results were assembled shortly before the stories on White House staffers Porter and Sorensen became public. Nunberg was sacked from the Trump campaign in 2015 after racist Facebook posts were uncovered on his personal account.
Mr. Torshin would later try to broker a "backdoor" meeting with the campaign. He traveled to Moscow twice in 2016 and was the subject of surveillance by the USA intelligence community. The Washington Post reported he was rehired by Trump as a communications adviser in February 2015, and CNN reported he was sacked from the Trump campaign on August 2, 2015, after racist posts allegedly from his Facebook account surfaced.
