Nunberg was a consultant to the Trump campaign before he was dismissed for his racist and incendiary posts, which included calling the daughter of the Rev. Al Sharpton's daughter "N-!" He then supported Ted Cruz's campaign for the Republican nomination.
Nunberg denied he was the leak, and eventually settled the lawsuit out of court.
'I said Putin has much better leadership qualities than Obama, but who doesn't know that?' he told reporters. For that matter, where are names like Donald Trump Jr and Jared Kushner, who are also supposedly linchpins of this theory?
More recently he's been in the news for allegedly paying porn star Stormy Daniels hush money directly before the 2016 election so she wouldn't go public about a decade-old affair with Trump, which reportedly took place several months after son Barron was born. "He campaigned his ass off", he said.
"Why do I have to spend 80 hours going over my email?"
"Let him arrest me", Nunberg said.
He also told MSNBC that the expansive subpoena proves Trump right.
Asked if he was ready to face possible contempt charges for refusing to cooperate, Nunberg told the network: "I think it would be amusing if they arrested me".
Nunberg told Tapper that he thinks Page is a "scumbag", and said he suspects Page of trying to collude with the Russians. "Do you think that they have something on the president?" However, he apologized in a 2017 MSNBC interview.At the time of his second firing, a campaign spokesperson described him as a "low-level" staffer.A few months later, in March 2016, Nunberg endorsed Sen.
He also said that based on his interview with Mueller's team, he thinks there's a chance Trump colluded with Russian Federation, though Nunberg did not say he had any evidence of that. "I think that Carter Page is a weird dude - I don't think he should have been involved in that campaign", he said.
