A former Trump aide who testified before special counsel Robert Mueller's grand jury on Friday says he does not view the Russian Federation probe as a "witch hunt", though he also does not believe the investigation leads to President Donald Trump. "There's a lot there, and that's a sad truth".
Nunberg has changed his tune after spending six hours in front of the grand jury, telling ABC News he now believes the Mueller probe is "warranted", adding "there's a lot there".
"I don't think it's a witch hunt", he said.
Sam Nunberg, the former trump aide made headlines saying he wouldn't talk to special counsel Mueller's team.
"I'm going to end up cooperating with them", he said.
Nunberg's decision to show up at the federal courthouse in Washington, DC, on Friday came after an extraordinary series of television interviews on Monday in which he boasted that he would refuse to comply with the subpoena to testify. In most of his interviews, Nunberg talked of how the Russian Federation probe was a witch hunt for Roger stone whom, according to Sam, is like family.

Given how well the Browns' front office knows Randall, its desire for a player it scouted and watched in person also makes sense. And the makeover came as the team awaits word from Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Thomas on his future.
"People I say I had a meltdown on TV", he said.
"Here's why I don't believe it: President Vladimir Putin is running an operation because he's too smart to do it directly with the campaign", Nunberg said.
Monday's weird television interviews culminated in a question from a CNN anchor as to whether Nunberg had been drinking (which he denied).
"To me it felt like he was a Talmud teacher and I was back in Yeshiva", Nunberg told Witt, describing the lawyer interviewing him before the grand jury.
Nunberg suggested if Mueller's investigators have something on President Trump it "better be within the scope of that investigation" into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and potential Trump campaign collusion, "which I don't think [President Trump] did".
