Sam Nunberg apologizes to Sarah Sanders: 'I was having a rough day'

Early on Monday, March 5, during televised interviews Nunberg appeared defiant, suggesting that he would refuse special counsel Robert Mueller's request to appear before a grand jury.

He even phoned into NY1, the local NY media station, and called White House press secretary Sarah Sanders a "fat slob" - an attack he attempted to walk back to New York's Olivia Nuzzi at 11:30 p.m. Monday night.

Stunned, Burnett asked about his mental state and about speculation raised by a Trump ally who said Nunberg was either "drunk or off his medication".

The sad thing about this administration is that if someone said to you, "Hey, remember when that former Trump staffer went on that long, weird rant to a member of the media, and at first everyone was amused, and then they became increasingly concerned that something was Not Right with him?", you would have to ask them to clarify which one. "Is this a hit job or is something wrong?" They want me to say that Roger was going around telling people he was colluding with (WikiLeaks founder) Julian Assange.

Nunberg - who worked for President Trump's campaign before he was sacked in 2015 - also called Trump "an idiot", and added that the president "may have very well done something during the election with the Russians", a charge the president has repeatedly denied.

President Donald Trump tenure continues to be plagued by controversy and low approval ratings, as a former campaign aide's odd comments about the ongoing probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election showed cracks in the veneer of the White House. CNN drew widespread criticism for allowing the live interview to continue even after host Erin Burnett said she smelled alcohol on Nunberg's breath. But "I think Carter Page colluded with the Russians, and I've told you that before".

Burnett: And it's an awkward question to ask, but, you know, I've interviewed you before, you're sitting very close to me.

He later added on CNN: "I'm not going to the grand jury".

The line of questioning, Nunberg told MSNBC anchor Katy Tur, "insinuated to me that [Trump] may have done something, and he may very well have". "You haven't had a drink?"

"My answer is no".

"No, besides my meds", Nunberg said.

Burnett: I'm just trying to understand what happened today. That's what they want. "It's not surprising that the special counsel may wanting to see e-mails and memos that I wrote to the campaign and about politics, and that's not really surprising". "But that's irrelevant. The person she works for has a 30% approval rating".

When Tur asked whether he believes Mueller's investigators in the Russian Federation probe have something on the president, Nunberg said: "I think they may".

The statement is one of multiple potentially damaging accusations Nunberg leveled at President Donald Trump during the interviews.

"I'm happy if the scope changes and if they send me a subpoena that doesn't include Carter Page", he said, insisting the two had never spoken.

Hall pushed back on the notion that interviewing Nunberg was unethical, arguing it was "a newsworthy interview".
