Earlier this week, long-time friend and Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone was indicted on seven felony counts. Arrested at his home in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in the early morning hours, Stone remained belligerent after posting bail on Friday afternoon. He repeatedly told reporters that he will “not testify” against the President. It almost felt as if Stone knew that Mueller was going after Trump and trying to use him as a means to get to him.
Now, new comments coming from Sam Nurnberg, a former Trump campaign aide and friend of Roger Stone, suggests that the President may have actually been the “senior campaign official” mentioned in the Stone indictment six different times.
While Nunberg also suggested that the official may have been Rick Gates, Steve Bannon or Paul Manafort, the possibility that this official may have been Donald Trump himself, surprised many viewers.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid asked Nunberg, “Could it be Donald Trump?” referring to the ‘senior campaign official’ from the indictment.
“Could it be Donald Trump who instructed them at that later paragraph? It could be but I don’t know. But yes, it could be. It could be,” Nunberg replied.
“There’s a paragraph in the indictment that says that they were instructed by a senior campaign official,” Reid said.
“No, it says a senior campaign official was instructed to go back and they made sure to not–that’s at the same paragraph where they were extremely particular in writing ‘senior campaign official contacted,’” Nunberg said, and then he once again conceded that Trump may be the one discussed, “it could be.”
We reached out to Sam Nunberg for further comment, but have yet to hear back from him.
