Former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg revealed in a recent interview that he believes special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators “have a strong case of a conspiracy” involving Russia.
Nunberg made the assertion while speaking to John Heilemann on Showtime’s The Circus program.
“When I went to the special counsel for the voluntary interview, it was, ‘Roger, Roger Roger, Roger,'” Nunberg said, referring to Trump confidante Roger Stone.
Nunberg said that prosecutors wanted to know “what did Roger and Trump discuss in their phone calls.”
“I could tell what they were going to do to Roger,” he explained. “I think Roger could tell what they’re going to do to Trump. These aren’t the guys you fuck around with. They have a strong case of a conspiracy.”
Nunberg said that he didn’t believe that President Donald Trump personally spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin during the 2016 campaign.
“But what I do know is that there’s something going on there,” he added. “There’s a lot of stuff to look into.”

Trump is becoming more hawkish on Iran — and he’s running out of options: report
So far, one of the only pieces of good news in the escalating tensions between the United States and Iran is that President Donald Trump has been reluctant to use military force, taking his cues in part from Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who has personally warned him that it would end his presidency — resisting the urges of his most trigger-happy advisers like John Bolton.
Now, however, the president appears to be having second thoughts as it becomes clearer that he will not be able to broker a better deal than President Barack Obama's nuclear agreement, and is starting to view the conflict more hawkishly, reported CNN's Kaitlan Collins on Monday.
Trump’s Medicare chief: ‘I view a public option and Medicare for All as equally dangerous’
And so, ask progressive advocates for single-payer solution, "Why would we settle for half-measures when the reform we need is just as plausible?"
Seem Verma, President Donald Trump's administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), came out swinging on Monday against the public option—a plan backed by some centrist Democratic presidential contenders—calling it and Medicare for All "equally dangerous."
Trump praises China response to Hong Kong protests
US President Donald Trump on Monday praised Beijing's handling of pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, a day after suspected triad gangsters attacked demonstrators in a bloody escalation.
Hong Kong has been plunged into its worst crisis in recent history by weeks of marches, which drew millions, and sporadic violent confrontations between police and pockets of hardcore protesters.
The demonstrations have evolved into a call for democratic reforms, universal suffrage and a halt to sliding freedoms which China had promised to respect in the semi-autonomous territory after its handover from Britain in 1997.
