Watch: Ex-Trump Aide Shows Up For Mueller Grand Jury Testimony After Vowing Not To

Former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg showed up at a District Court in Washington, DC, Friday morning, where he is expected to deliver federal grand jury testimony as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Nunberg is the first recognizable Trump campaign affiliate to appear at a grand jury hearing related to Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. he arrived at the courthouse early Friday morning and used the public main entrance to enter the building, CNN reports.

Other witnesses have reportedly testified before Mueller’s grand jury since it started meeting last July, but none have made as public an appearance.

When asked by reporters if he would speak following his testimony, Nunberg said “no,” according to the report.

His testimony comes after a bizarre series of television interviews Monday in which he revealed he had been subpoenaed by Mueller’s investigators, who demanded he turn over correspondences with Trump and several other top campaign and White House officials.

“When I got the subpoena it was ridiculous to me. Why should I hand them over every email I’ve had with Steve Bannon or Roger Stone since November. Since November of 2015?” Nunberg said during an interview on MSNBC.

During the 2016 campaign, Stone predicted that WikiLeaks would release damaging information about Hillary Clinton, including stating that it would be Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s “time in the barrel” ahead of the WikiLeaks’ release of Podesta’s emails.

During an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Nunberg said that he was summoned to appear before the grand jury but planned to refuse.

“Let him arrest me,” Nunberg told Cuomo. “Mr. Mueller should understand I am not going in on Friday.”

During the interviews, he also predicted Mueller has evidence of criminal wrongdoing committed by Trump.

“I think he may have done something during the election,” Nunberg told NBC.

The White House denied those claims, calling them incorrect.

But Nunberg abruptly reversed course in a Tuesday interview with the Associated Press, saying he would cooperate with Mueller after all.

“I’m going to end up cooperating with them,” he said.
