Sam Nunberg – a former aide to President Donald Trump – is refusing to turn over crucial evidence subpoenaed by special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into the 2016 presidential campaign—and at first Nunberg didn’t seem to realize just how serious that is.
On live TV multiple times Monday – Nunberg dismissed questions about whether or not he could go to jail for objecting to Mueller’s formal request for his communications with other members of the Trump campaign and to testify before a grand jury.
‘He’s not going to send me to jail’ Nunberg said.
Then his voice became more serious.
‘You know what?
Mr. Mueller if he wants to send me to jail – he can send me to jail and then I’ll laugh about it’.
For the sake of Nunberg and anyone else who may be reading: One can absolutely go to jail for refusing to comply with a subpoena.
Mueller has already obtained three guilty verdicts in his investigation – there’s no reason to think he won’t use the full force of the law to get what he wants.
