Former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg ran out here talking big talk. Remember? It was just a few days ago when Nunberg received a subpoena from special counselor Robert Mueller, who’s about to blow this whole Russia-Trump scandal out of the water, but Nunberg was acting like Training Day Denzel, claiming that he wasn’t fishing through some 800 emails and he wasn’t going to comply with anything because it was stupid and time-consuming. He also was so unhinged that a CNN anchor asked if he had been drinking because she smelled alcohol on his breath.


Well, what do you know? It looks like Nunberg has come to his senses and did what we all knew he was going to do because guys like him don’t do well in prison. Just two days after he went on a Ferris Bueller-style media blitz of epic rants, including challenging Mueller to arrest him, he’s completely changed his tune.

In an interview with WABC Radio, Nunberg turned church boy and noted that he gathered everything that the subpoena asked for—including emails, text messages and communications he had with 10 campaign associates—and handed it all over before Wednesday’s deadline.

“I’m not holding anything back. ... [Complying with the subpoena] was much easier to do than I initially thought,” Nunberg said, the New York Daily News reports.

And get this: Nunberg—the same Nunberg who was yelling, “You’re never gonna take me alive, Copper!”—is now agreeing to appear before the federal grand jury on Friday and added that he won’t be holding anything back.


“I’m not going to take the Fifth on anything because I don’t need to,” a brand-new Nunberg said. “I’m going to answer every single question.”

Funny how a few days can change a whole situation. Hopefully he has something good to say, because if the past few days have been an indicator of anything, it’s that Nunberg can’t hold back. This could be a good thing for those of us who didn’t vote for this Beverly Hillbillies-ass administration.
