In a bizarre episode, Sam Nunberg, a former aide to Donald Trump, vowed Monday not to cooperate with the special counsel investigating Russian political interference even as he suggested that the president "may have done something" improper during the campaign.

But after speaking with several reporters and appearing on multiple cable television shows over the course of the day, Nunberg began to back down from his threats to ignore a subpoena to testify before a grand jury.

Why is he backing down?

He must have gotten some serious threats. Earlier he was very definitive about not testifying in front of the grand jury.

One of his interviewers today smelled alcohol on his breath and asked about it. I’ll say no more, say no more.

I have never heard of this guy before today. Mueller is scraping the bottom of the barrel.

“Why is he backing down?”

Because he does not want to move from sleeping with his wife to sleeping with a cellmate.

Collusion is not against the law. But “they” are not going to stop until they get Trump. The question is what will Trump’s supporters do?

This Nunberg character seems to be quite a flake.

He should just follow the Cankles protocol:

“I don’t recall. I don’t recall. I don’t recall. I don’t recall. I don’t recall. I don’t recall. I don’t recall. I don’t recall. I don’t recall. I don’t recall. I don’t recall. I don’t recall.

I think he’s a Roger Stone associate? If so I think Roger is skunking the press and Mueller.

Alcohol is odorless.

That's the whole point. Trump doesn't hang out with slick lawyers who know all the right weasel words to stay out of jail. That's why he won and not Hillary. None of Hillary's people would make silly public statements against a prosecutor and would therefore not be labeled "nutcases".

In my opinion he was drunk as a skunk. What a joke.

He’s a drunk and a nobody. Unfortunately he thinks Trump did Stone wrong and he’s flapping his yap as if he is somebody
