Former Trump aide Sam Nunberg summoned to meet with Senate panel

The Senate committee wants to know more about Trump adviser Roger Stone.

"I'm happy to appear and meet with them. I've never spoken to the president, I have no executive privilege issues," Nunberg told ABC News, referring to other former Trump aides including former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski who testified before the committee but invoked executive privilege, angering its members.

The Senate Intelligence Committee is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.

But Nunberg told ABC News that he does not believe that Stone met with Assange, despite Stone's prior claims.

"Roger didn't communicate with Assange, if he had communicated with Assange then I would be concerned that he would go to jail but he didn't," Nunberg said.

Instead, Nunberg suggested that Stone was "lying" about his communications.

"He ingratiates himself into stories," Nunberg said.

"I don't think he ever did meet with Assange - why did he say that? Because it's Roger, that's what he does."

At the time, Nunberg vowed to fight the subpoena and refused to testify, but he ended up complying.

After meeting with Mueller, he told ABC News at the time he as "very worried" about Stone coming under scrutiny from the special counsel. On the investigation, he said, "I don't think it's a witch hunt."
