Sam Nunberg first worked for one of Trump's businesses and later helped advise Trump's presidential campaign, but he was sacked in August 2015 amid reports that he posted racially charged messages on Facebook.
In an interview with Bloomberg, Nunberg challenged Mueller's power to take any action against him should he keep his word and abstain from Friday's grand jury appearance, adding that he didn't want to pay the travel expenses.
Nunberg said in multiple appearances he would defy orders to appear before Mueller to answer questions about whether or not the campaign of President Trump colluded with Russian operatives during the 2016 presidential election.
He said that while the mainstream media was obsessing over Nunberg's "freakout", they ignored other stories they should have been covering, including new evidence of the "real Russian Federation collusion" during the 2016 Election. That Nunberg actually recognizes the value and intelligence of a Black woman, is, I hope, a life lesson for him.
Nunberg told MSNBC's Katy Tur, "I think it would be really, really amusing if they wanted to arrest me, because I don't want to spend 80 hours going over emails I had with Steve Bannon and Roger Stone".
Nunberg said Wednesday the emails he found are mostly from Bannon and Stone.
In his interview with Bloomberg, Nunberg said Trump "never did anything illegal or wrong around me".

"Unsourced innuendo like this succeeds only because the leakers know the Special Counsel will not respond to set the record straight", Cohen's attorney, Stephen Ryan, told The Post in a statement. "Everything I have to go through now - I'm smart enough not to involve alcohol".
Nunberg said he'd already blown a 3 p.m. Monday deadline to turn over the requested communications. I think it would be amusing if they arrested me. Nunberg told CNN's Jake Tapper that he's swimming in legal fees, all thanks to the president.
"It's my impression that they may have something on him".
"This is not Mr. Nunberg's decision, and he will be in criminal contempt for refusing to show up". But he can't tell the grand Jury to get lost.
Nunberg appeared pleased by his performance, telling the AP that he was "doing something I've never seen".
"It makes it look like you're cooking a story, and prosecutors are always looking out for it", said Julie O'Sullivan, a Georgetown University law professor. At the end of an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, Nunberg asked whether the TV anchor thought he should instead cooperate with Mueller. I would guess that Nunberg has a lot of information of value to Mueller, especially in his email communications.
