A former Trump campaign adviser who called special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation a “witch hunt” a week ago has changed his tune.  Sam Nunberg said Saturday that he now believes Mueller’s probe is “warranted” — after spending six hours being grilled about associates of President Trump

“There’s a lot there,” he said.

 

Nunberg also pushed back on criticism that his Monday media blitz was a mental break or the result of substance abuse issues.

 

“People I say I had a meltdown on TV,” he said. “I melted TV down that day.”

 

Nunberg testified Friday for nearly six hours before a grand jury in Washington in relation to Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign and possible coordination with the Trump campaign.

 

Nunberg, who spent more than 24 hours publicly questioning whether he had to respond to a subpoena issued by the special counsel said testifying was something he felt he needed to do and was his “duty as an American, whether I like it or not.”

 

The 36-year-old, who worked with the Trump Organization before briefly joining the President’s campaign, said he was very worried about his mentor Roger Stone.

 

The Republican strategist and Trump buddy has denied colluding with the Kremlin, but has faced intense scrutiny for his contacts with WikiLeaks.

 

“I’m very worried about him,” Nunberg said. “He’s certainly at least the subject of this investigation, in the very least he’s a subject.”

 

But, Nunberg added, he doesn’t necessarily see the President as the top target of the wide-reaching federal probe.

 

“I don’t believe it leads to the President,” he said, contradicting his earlier assessment that Mueller has “something” on Trump.
