Today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit rejected a constitutional challenge to the authority of Special Counsel Robert Mueller in a case brought by Andrew Miller, a former aide to Roger Stone during the 2016 Republican Convention who challenged a subpoena to appear before the grand jury last June.
“We are disappointed with the decision and will be considering future legal action, whether before the full court of appeals or the Supreme Court,” said Paul Kamenar, attorney for Mr. Miller. “The fact that the court took more than three months to decide this appeal after oral argument compared to the three days it took in December to decide another challenge to a Mueller subpoena issued to an unnamed foreign corporation, demonstrates that this was a serious and substantial challenge,” Kamenar added.
“We’re committed to continue supporting this legal challenge and any related actions“ said Peter Flaherty, Chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center, a nonprofit public interest organization dedicated to promoting ethics and accountability in government.
Kamenar represents Miller on a partial pro bono basis, and is supported in this litigation by the National Legal and Policy Center.
