Former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg reportedly said he’ll seek treatment after speculation swirled that he was drunk during a series of bizarre, headline-making television interviews he gave on Monday.
Nunberg, an attorney and one of Trump’s earliest political advisers, also reportedly said he’ll fully cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation after initially vowing to refuse a subpoena from Mueller to appear before a grand jury this week. “I’m not cooperating,” Nunberg told CNN’s Gloria Borger in one interview Monday. “You want to arrest me? Arrest me.”
Charles Gasparino of FOX Business Network reported the latest Nunberg news on Twitter Tuesday, writing: “Just spoke w @NunbergSam he told me he’s fully cooperating now w Mueller’s team and he’s intending to go get treatment following his grand jury appearance on Friday.”

As Nunberg’s cable news blitz unfolded on live television Monday afternoon, several of his friends told The Daily Beast they were worried that he was putting himself in legal jeopardy and that he was “drinking again” before dialing in to MSNBC and CNN. Nunberg did not respond to multiple calls and texts from The Daily Beast.
