Former Donald Trump aide Sam Nunberg has been called to appear before a grand jury on Friday in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. He, however, is refusing to cooperate.

Nunberg is no longer a fan of the president, but he still defended his 2016 victory.
“The Russians and Trump did not collude," Nunberg reportedly told The Washington Post's Josh Dawsey. "Donald Trump won this election on his own. He campaigned his ass off. And there is nobody who hates him more than me.”
In the subpoena, Mueller's office also informed Nunberg they wanted him to fork over documents related to President Trump and nine of his associates. They want any emails, correspondence, invoices, telephone logs, calendars and “records of any kind.”
Nunberg has refused to comply with that directive too.
The former Trump aide has no interest in spending money to come down to Washington or pay for a lawyer, Dawsey elaborated on CNN Monday.
Nunberg added that he was planning to go on Bloomberg TV and tear up the subpoena.
Mueller has indicted several people associated with Trump since the investigation commenced, but he has yet to provide any evidence to show the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election.
