Judge holds Roger Stone associate in contempt for refusing to testify before grand jury in Russia investigation

Breaking: Judge holds Roger Stone associate in contempt for refusing to testify before grand jury in Russia investigation. Andrew Miller, a former aide to longtime Trump confidant Stone, had fought and lost a court battle to quash a subpoena from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to testify to the grand jury. Earlier this month, a judge issued a 93-page opinion saying Miller must testify. But prosecutors told the court Friday that Miller still refused to comply. This is a developing story and will be updated.]

A witness in special counsel Robert S. Mueller IIIís investigation has refused to appear for scheduled grand jury testimony Friday, prompting a sealed hearing before a federal judge.

Andrew Miller, a former aide to longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone, had fought and lost a court battle earlier this month to quash a subpoena, after a judge issued a 93-page opinion saying Miller must testify before the grand jury.

Peter Flaherty, chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center, a conservative nonprofit that is funding Millerís legal fight, said Miller had refused to appear before the grand jury in response to a subpoena.

29. That'll never happen. A lot of talk, but there's never any action.

We need people on top who will enforce the law, not just use it to threaten.

15. I bet "Nunberg" and "wisely" are words that almost never appear in the same sentence

But even that dumbass saw the orange jumpsuit in his future, sobered up and cooperated. (Then returned to being a complete jagoff.)

8. Maybe Flaherty should sit this traitor down and explain to him that he is now Fucked...........

contempt of a grand jury is still contempt.............put his ass in leg irons, and make sure his passport has been revoked...............................dumb fucker.................wonder if he has a tattoo on his back also................

Now the FBI or the United States Marshall will go and talk to him if he hasn't committed suicide.................what fucking IDIOT.............this criminal bunch just hires the best remember.................

22. Apparently he wanted to be held in contempt

So he could appeal the judge's decision. The judge immediately stayed the contempt order when notified by Miller's lawyers they would be appealing.

I suspect she had an inkling this might happen when she released her 90 page opinion on the motion to quash Mueller's subpoena.

I am sick to death of these criminals - destroying our democracy for their nefarious reasons ....

I hate that this "Supreme Court" would be in any way a deciding factor in this mess

I weep for my country and our future generations if this matter is not resolved correctly.

with no release date to look towards for relief.

to question the validity of Mueller's appointment as special counsel. Gee, I wonder if anybody beyond Miller and his lawyer thought of that idea?

35. They should issue a grant of immunity providing he does not lie or lie by omission

in order to force him to testify.
That way he cannot hide behind the 5th and can be compelled to testify.
Of course he might have the lifespan of a mayfly should he know anything about Putin but that is entirely his own problem.

Anyone held in contempt can be jailed for the entirety of the time until the grand jury is concluded.

37. I hope this shitstain is brought up on state charges, rather than federal.

I don't want there being any chance that scumbag gets a presidential pardon. Let him rot in Sing Sing for the rest of his miserable life. He's right up there with Stephen Miller of the ones that most need to be removed from free society. Lock them up and throw away the keys.
