Grand Jury Subpoena Was for Sam Nunberg

Earlier today, I mentioned that Special Counsel Bob Mueller had subpoenaed all communications between a Grand Jury witness and a list of people that didn't include Vice President Mike Pence. At the time, we didn't know who had been the person at the center of the subpoena, but now we do: It was former Trump aide Sam Nunberg.

Josh Dawsey at the Washington Post reports:
Former Trump aide Sam Nunberg said Monday that he has been subpoenaed to appear in front of a federal grand jury investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election but that he will refuse to go.

In an interview with The Washington Post, Nunberg said he was asked to come to Washington to appear before the grand jury on Friday. He also provided a copy of what appears to be his two-page grand jury subpoena seeking documents related to [Donald] Trump and nine other people, including emails, correspondence, invoices, telephone logs, calendars, and "records of any kind."

...Nunberg said he does not plan to comply with the subpoena, including either providing testimony or documents.

"Let him arrest me," Nunberg said. "Mr. Mueller should understand I am not going in on Friday."
Nunberg then did a remarkable interview with Katy Tur, during which he again insisted Mueller could shove it. (I'm paraphrasing.)

Let me just be blunt here: If there's anyone I think would be at the center of a Stone ratfucking, it's Nunberg. And I absolutely think that Stone is trying to orchestrate a ratfucking. It's what he does.
