Roger Stone associate held in contempt in Russian Federation probe

Stone I wouldn't testify against Trump

An associate of former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone has been held in contempt of course after refusing to appear before a grand jury in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe.

According to the Washington Post, Miller defied a June subpoena by Mueller to testify as part of the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into possible collusion between Trump's 2016 campaign and the Russians, along with potential obstruction of justice on the part of the president. Miller argues that Mueller's appointment is unconstitutional.

Stone himself has not yet been questioned or subpoenaed in the investigation. Her spokeswoman confirmed that Davis testified before the grand jury, according to the Wall Street Journal. CNN first reported the subpoena.

Davis, known for running a high-end prostitution ring a decade ago, has close ties to longtime Trump ally Roger Stone. Trump has repeatedly said there was no collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation and has called Mueller's investigation a witch hunt. That former associate, Andrew Miller, is now facing contempt charges.

Miller's lawyer had sought to quash the subpoena.

The Washington Post reports that U.S. District Chief Judge Beryl Howell ruled Miller in contempt of court after he repeatedly defied subpoenas to testify under oath.

Jason Sullivan, a social media expert who worked with Stone, has testified to the grand jury.

Earlier in 2018, Stone associates also said Stone claimed to have been briefed by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange about stolen emails the organization had obtained before they were released.

Mueller's outreach may mean he is focusing in part on whether Stone may have had advance knowledge of material detrimental to Trump's 2016 Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton that USA intelligence agencies have concluded was obtained by Russian Federation through hacking.
