WASHINGTON – Attorneys for Andrew Miller, a former aide of ex-Trump adviser Roger Stone, said Miller has been contempt for the court to refuse to appear. In front of the grand jury hearing aid in Robert Miller’s Special Council Russian trial said his lawyers Friday.
Miller had previously struggled to cast a mood from the special council office but was ordered to appear on Friday morning. He did not do that, his lawyer Paul Kamenar said outside the US District Court in Washington and “disdained, as we asked him to be able to appeal the judge’s decision to the court.”
His lawyers challenge the special Council’s legitimacy and how he was appointed. The US District Court rejected the argument and his lawyers are appealing.
“Mr. Miller intends to appeal the decision of the court on July 31
regarding the appointment of Mueller,” said Alicia Dearn, one of Miller lawyer, NBC News. “That’s the current attitude in the matter.”
Another stone union, Kristin Davis, is ready to testify to the jury’s Friday afternoon.
“[I’m] feels good,” said Davis Thursday. “Do not worry at all. Ready for it’s over and continuing with my life.”
Davis, known as Manhattan’s wife to give prostitutes to New York’s elite, was in jail on an unlearned attack until May 2016, saying that she would not know much about the Trump campaign.
“I did not work for Roger 2016,” told Davis for NBC News Thursday. “I still do not know the extent of what to ask me.”
Davis said that Miller was responsible for maintaining Stein’s schedule during the presidential campaign. She said that she took over the task in August 2017. Davis, 41, has done web design and office information for Steen’s political consultation.
Davis told NBC News in July that someone at Mueller’s office called his lawyer to ask her to speak with investigators. A member of Mueller’s team interviewed her last week, said a person with knowledge of the matter.
Davis’s lawyer, Miller and a spokesman for Mueller’s office did not respond immediately to the request for comments.
In a statement to NBC News, Sade Stone: “Kristin Davis has been a friend and has worked on and off for me. She is a brilliant business woman who paid her debt to society and has recreated her life. She is single parent to a 2 year old son, my god, Carter Stone Davis, who my wife and I love very much. “
” She is really not involved in any illegal activity today and does not seek a media circus surrounding her testimony when she trying to raise a child and start a cosmetology business in New York. Kristin Davis did not work for me in 2015 or 2016 – during the preparation and implementation of Donald Trump’s campaign. “
Davis was arrested in 2013 after claiming to sell drugs to an FBI collaborator . She accused of paying a fee for selling prescription drugs. Sentenced to two years in jail, she was released in May 2016.
