“No, I don’t think it’s a witch hunt,” Sam Nunberg told ABC News. “It’s warranted because there’s a lot there and that’s the sad truth.”

He added, “I don’t believe it leads to the president.”

Instead, Nunberg said he believes that many in his inner circle may face legal trouble, including his own mentor and former Trump campaign aide, Roger Stone.

“I’m very worried about him,” Nunberg said. “He’s certainly at least the subject of this investigation, in the very least he’s a subject.”

Stone has testified before congressional investigators in the Russia probe, and told ABC News that he would expect Mueller’s team to ask him for documents or emails. But, he said, he had “no knowledge or involvement in Russian collusion or any other inappropriate act.”
