For the Record: Nunberg but the Brave

Sam Nunberg, via blogfriend Featguth.

Mr. Pierce, reacting to that subpoena from Mueller to some mook demanding all his correspondence since November 2015 with practically everybody on the Trump campaign including the emperor-to-be himself, thought it was interesting that Pence wasn't on the list:
Obviously I was wrong, it was just old Trump campaign flunky Sam Nunberg's subpoena apparently, perhaps the spur to today's interesting meltdown.

I think Nunberg has been doing this stuff for a while, as a matter of fact. In November, just after Manafort's first indictment (only 12 counts, and not even any tax evasion! those were the days of innocence!), he was calling up Vanity Fair:
 “Here’s what Manafort’s indictment tells me: Mueller is going to go over every financial dealing of Jared Kushner and the Trump Organization,” said former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg. “Trump is at 33 percent in Gallup. You can’t go any lower. He’s fucked.”
He was also the one who made up the story about Chris Christie being commissioned to purchase the president's McDonald's order (two Big Macs, two Filets-o'-Fish, and a Diet Coke). That was Nunberg's job, and once the campaign marooned him in a McDonald's somewhere because he was taking too long. Now he's starting to get his revenge. Or something. Calling up Jake Tapper and Katie Tur and Ari Melber and telling them how Carter Page is a scumbag (oh and also he definitely colluded with Russia), and Donald Trump "probably did something", at least that's what heard from Bannon (and incidentally knew about the Veselnitskaya meeting a week before it took place, were you interested to hear that?).

So the long and short of it is that I'm probably going to end up watching TV all night. Some of the day's Tweets below the fold:

On Trump's mystifying claim that he has got the price of building a new US embassy in Jerusalem down from $1 billion to $250,000 (no doubt he'd say "I jewed them down"), I think I've figured out what happened:

That's not what you do with gaskets, is it? Never mind.
