  • Roger Stone associate held in contempt for refusing to testify before Mueller grand jury

An associate of Roger StoneRoger Jason StoneMueller to subpoena Roger Stone-Wikileaks connection: report Michael Moore calls Trump "the last president of the United States" in new movie Intentionally deceiving voters should be a crime MORE has been held in contempt for refusing to testify before the grand jury in special counsel Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russian Federation probe MORE's investigation, according to The Washington Post.

Paul Kamenar, attorney for Andrew Miller, says Mueller's appointment is unconstitutional. Mueller issued subpoenas in May to John Kakanis, a former driver for Stone, and Jason Sullivan, who did social media and administrative work for a political action committee run by Stone in July and August of 2016.

The pressure on Stone threatens to bring the Russian Federation investigation even deeper into Trump's inner circle, but the eccentric political trickster told CNN on Wednesday there are "no circumstances" under which he would testify against the president.

Mueller has been focusing in recent months on Stone, who has had a decades-long relationship with Trump. She made the contempt ruling Friday after a closed hearing in Washington.

Stone, who has denied any wrongdoing, has previously said that eight of his associates have been contacted by Mueller but that the special counsel's team has not contacted him.

That challenge was rejected, however, and U.S. District Chief Judge Beryl Howell on Friday found Miller in contempt but stayed the order pending appeal, the Post reported.
