Rumble According to Reuters, a U.S. appeals court on Tuesday rejected a challenge brought by an associate of Roger Stone about the legality of Robert Mueller’s appointment by the Justice Department as special counsel heading the Russia investigation. As a result the court upheld a lower court’s decision to hold Andrew Miller in contempt for refusing to comply with a grand jury subpoena served on him by Mueller. Miller’s case marked the third legal challenge to Mueller’s authority that has failed so far.
