Sam Nunberg, a former campaign aide of U.S. President Donald Trump, on Friday appeared at federal court in Washington D.C. though he publicly claimed earlier that he would not comply with the subpoena issued by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team over Russian Federation investigation. "I'm not sure if my parents think it is, but that's a different story".

"They want me to say that Roger was going around telling people he was colluding with (WikiLeaks founder) Julian Assange", Nunberg said Monday. That's what they want.

"My plan is", Nunberg said, "I'm going to make a plan". Stone encouraged Trump to run for the presidency. He served as Donald Trump's lobbyist in Washington, D.C. during the late 1990s, and in the early 2000s.

In 1980, Stone co-founded the lobbying firm, Black, Manafort, Stone, with Charles R. Black and Paul Manafort.

The former Trump campaign aide also told The Washington Post that he was summoned to appear before the grand jury but planned to refuse.

Roger Stone has been described in the media as a political trickster and a veteran Republican strategist, and is considered responsible for promoting falsehoods and conspiracy theories.

Sam Nunberg, who vowed to defy a subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller in a series of interviews earlier in the week, did not speak to reporters as he entered court around 9 a.m. Nunberg said during an interview on MSNBC.

Nunberg said he had worked for hours to produce the thousands of emails and other communications requested by Mueller, who is investigating whether the Trump campaign improperly coordinated with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election.

"He's also going to seek treatment for what ails him", he continued.

Nunberg did have a change of heart by the end of Monday. He did speculate Mueller's investigators are zeroing in on Trump over his business activities.

Nunberg abruptly reversed course in a Tuesday interview with The Associated Press, saying he would cooperate with Mueller after all. Nunberg said, "I'm completely cooperating".
