"I was walking around [Beverly Hills] and an worldwide businessman I know pretty well, swore me to secrecy said 'You can say this on TV".
Sam, I have to ask you one other thing.
It comes after Trump said Tuesday at the White House that Russians did interfere in America's last presidential election - and other countries probably did too - but cautioned that the USA will counteract any attempt at meddling in the November 2018 midterms.
We talked earlier about what people in the White House were saying about you.
Burnett also mentions that she smells alcohol on his breath.
Oh, I am aware. "No, you haven't had a drink today?"
Anti-depressants, is that okay? Particularly, the people Mueller has hired - several of whom have also contributed to Hillary Clinton and other Democratic candidates, or represented Democrats - essentially have a free hand to go after Republicans no matter how peripheral they might have been to the 2016 campaign or to Mueller's original charter. "He said frightful things about Sarah Huckabee Sanders, says he wants to fight Corey Lewandowski in an alley ... he also had awful things to say about Carter Page". I don't really care.
And if Americans missed his back-to-back-to-back interviews - or the followup coverage Tuesday - they might never hear his name again. "The person she works for has a 30-percent approval rating". It was in the 30s.
Society of Professional Journalists ethics chairman Andrew Seaman penned a blog entry about the situation and said it's "complicated", but "it may have been best and more responsible to tape an interview with Nunberg instead of airing it on live television". "I'm going to answer every single question".
Which brings us to the conundrum of Nunberg: If what he said about Trump is true, it is a big deal. Yes, that kind of sounds like the behavior of a guy who's not all there mentally because of the influence of drugs or alcohol or prescription medication.
"I'm going to end up cooperating with them", he said.
He also may not be as confident about defying a subpoena as he sounds, appearing to ask MSNBC host Katy Tur what she thought would happen if he took this course of action.
