The former Trump campaign aide who had multiple meltdowns on national TV Monday is “his own man,” his mentor Roger Stone told the Daily News.

Sam Nunberg, angry over a subpoena from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigators, initially said he was willing to go to jail rather than turn over emails he exchanged with a number of people involved in the Trump campaign, including Stone.

“Sam’s his own man,” Stone said of Nunberg’s bizarre behavior. “He’s not operating at my behest or on my advice or direction.”

In a series of strange interviews, Nunberg unleashed his unfiltered thoughts on Monday about Mueller’s investigation into possible coordination between members of the Trump campaign and Russians set on influencing the 2016 election.

“I’m not going to cooperate! Why do I have to spend 80 hours going over my emails that I’ve had with Steve Bannon and with Roger Stone?” Nunberg asked MSNBC’s Katy Tur. “Why does Bob Mueller need to see my emails when I send Roger and Steve clips and we talk about how much we hate people?”

He vowed to defy a grand jury subpoena, called Mueller’s probe a “witch hunt” and claimed that the special counsel is trying to prove that his longtime friend Stone colluded with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

Stone has faced questions in the Russia probe from the House Intelligence Committee, which asked about his communications with Wikileaks before the site published hacked Democratic emails.

Stone insisted that he never communicated directly with Assange, but months later said he had a “backchannel” to the group.

“I’m doing this to defend … Roger,” Nunberg told Yahoo News on Monday. “I’m not going to let them just hurt Roger for no reason.”

Stone defended himself as well, denying that he had any knowledge of Wikileaks plans to publish the hacked emails.

“I was briefly part of the Trump campaign and have been the President's friend and adviser for decades; and would expect that Mueller’s team would at some point ask for any documents or emails sent or written by me,” Stone said. “But let me reiterate, I had no knowledge or involvement in Russian Collusion or any other inappropriate act.”

It’s unclear what Nunberg would know about the inner workings of the Trump campaign or the White House or what interest Mueller would have outside of his contacts with Stone and former White House strategist Stephen Bannon.

The 37-year-old never worked at the White House and was booted from the Trump campaign early on, in August 2015, after racist social media postings surfaced. Trump filed a $10 million lawsuit against Nunberg in July 2016, accusing him of violating a nondisclosure agreement, but they settled the suit one month later.

Nunberg, who denied he had been drinking during his marathon media blitz, told CNN he thought Mueller may already have incriminating evidence on President Trump directly, although he would not say what that evidence might be.

He eventually told The Associated Press that he would probably end up testifying on Friday before a grand jury. He said he was simply concerned about the broad scope of the subpoena.

“I’m happy if the scope changes,” he said. “And if they send me a subpoena that doesn’t include Carter Page.”

Page is a former Trump foreign policy adviser who has drawn scrutiny for his contacts with Kremlin-linked officials.

“Carter Page was colluding with the Russians,” Nunberg told CNN.
