The 23 craziest quotes from Sam Nunberg's absolutely bonkers interview

Chris Cilliza:

Former Trump campaign official Sam Nunberg thought it was a good idea to a) ignore an apparent subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller and b) go on CNN and talk all about it.

The legal soundness of that decision is, um, questionable. But from a news perspective it was absolute gold. In that vein, I scoured the transcript of Nunberg's conversation with CNN's Gloria Borger for the best -- and, by that, I mean most absolutely bonkers -- nuggets. The shiniest ones are below.

"Do you think I would ever talk to that moron?"
And, we're off! This is Nunberg talking about Mueller. The former FBI director. The special counsel looking into Russia's attempted meddling into the 2016 election. The guy who has already secured three guilty pleas -- with cooperation! -- from former Trump campaign officials. But sure, calling him a "moron" makes sense.


2. "I'll send you the full subpoena."
I'm no lawyer -- sorry Mom! -- but this doesn't feel like the smartest move by Nunberg. Not only is he rejecting Mueller's subpoena but he's also offering to send it, in full, to a reporter?

13. That first quote has been corrected. He didn't mean Mueller was a moron.

According to the updated CNN story, Nunberg was saying that Carter Page is a moron.
