From Courthouse News Service by Britain Eakin:
Challenging the lack of cooperation by former Roger Stone associate Andrew Miller, prosecutors told the D.C. Circuit Thursday that the grand jury that worked with special counsel Robert Mueller still needs Miller’s testimony.
Filed this morning by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, the government’s 21-page opposition brief indicates that the grand jury empaneled by Mueller is likely still working, and that more criminal charges related to Miller’s testimony are possible.
The grand jury working with Mueller had subpoenaed Miller in May 2018 for testimony concerning Stone’s relationship to WikiLeaks, its founder Julian Assange and Guccifer 2.0, a fake persona allegedly tied to Russian intelligence that filtered hacked Democratic emails damaging to Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.
After Miller refused to testify last year, a federal judge held him in contempt, prompting an appeal to the D.C. Circuit on the grounds that the subpoena was invalid because Mueller was unconstitutionally appointed.
The D.C. Circuit rejected Miller’s argument, however, and declined on April 29 to rehear the matter en banc.
Indicating that he would petition the Supreme Court next, Miller then sought a 30-day stay of the D.C. Circuit’s ruling.
