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.
