I'm watching Sam Nunberg's interview with Ari Melber, and he's off his meds. Did anyone else watch this? And THIS GUY IS A LAWYER.!?!

This is not a congressional subpoena. If you refuse a congressional subpoena, and Congress doesn't bother to vote you in contempt or decides not to act on it, you have no worries.
This is a Grand Jury subpoena, issued by a judge and the empaneled Grand Jury. Refusing a subpoena by the courts is automatically a contempt of court charge, no vote necessary.

So, it's not Congress, you WILL be arrested.
Am I wrong?

I don't really know anything about him personally, like if he is on meds.

My take, if I saw him in real life in say a bar and he was not drunk (he may have had a drink but I don't think he was drunk), is he broke down mentally under some kind of pressure, personal or business. His manic blathering switching rapidly from one topic/point to another suggests a loss of cogent synaptic firing.

as an aside:: he apparently is unaware of any damning evidence

Some folks don't handle pressure very well.

The fact that Trump won't put the Congressional Russian Sanctions in place is pretty obvious that Trump is a Russian stooge.

...as NW_P pointed out, this Nunberg guy is a lawyer. Nunberg's own lawyers are not returning his calls - for real. Apparently these non-return of calls is what set Nunberg off yesterday. Hmm

Latest Reported Mueller Subpoena Shows I...chelles Meeting - Slate. This meeting demonstrates the difference between any autocracy/oligarchy and a democratic nation based on the rule of law. In a normal country, diplomatic relations are conducted by diplomats - officially appointed government agents. In kleptocracies, however, contacts are made by loyalists. Trump and his crime family think of themselves as an oligarchy and feel that laws don't apply to them. The participants in the meeting are used to the methods of crime families, not law-abiding societies.

I've changed my mind. I think Michael Cohen will be the next Mueller indictee. Thank You Stormy Daniels.
