Sam Nunberg, a now ex-aide to Donald Trump, doesn’t want you believing the still-circulating allegations that Trump colluded with Russia to win the Presidency.
Simply put… he doubts it because Trump can’t keep a secret LOL.
“The other question when you broaden out, this notion that the theory of the case may turn on Donald Trump knowing about the hacked emails in advance or partaking in it. Is it possible that he has that exposure?” MSNBC host Ari Melber asked Nunberg, who was interviewed by Mueller’s team last Thursday.
“I think you would be giving Donald Trump too much credit,” said Nunberg, who worked for Trump from early 2014 through Aug. 2015.
“I think if Vladimir Putin had a plan like this, he would tell Donald Trump because he would not be able to keep his mouth shut about it. It would hurt Vladimir Putin.”
As reported by Fox News:
Mueller’s investigation has led to multiple charges – although none are directly related to misconduct from the campaign.
Paul Manafort and his associate, Richard Gates, turned themselves over to federal authorities in October and were hit with a 12-count indictment – with charges ranging from conspiracy against the U.S. to conspiracy to launder money.
Nearly four months later, in February, the pair was hit with additional tax evasion and bank fraud charges. The new indictment involved much of the same conduct Manafort and Gates were already charged with, but the amount of money Manafort is accused of laundering through offshore accounts was increased to $30 million.
Manafort was hit with another indictment, accusing him of secretly paying former European politicians to lobby on behalf of Ukraine.
Gates pleaded guilty to federal conspiracy and false-statements charges on Feb. 23. In wake of the guilty plea, Mueller moved to drop the 22 bank and tax fraud charges against him. The decision to drop the more expansive charges against Gates could suggest that the former Trump campaign official is cooperating and providing good information to Mueller’s team.
