Witness in Mueller Probe Held in Contempt for Refusing to Testify

A judge on Friday held a witness in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation in contempt of court for refusing to appear before a grand jury, The Washington Post reports.

Andrew Miller had fought and lost a court battle earlier this month to crush a subpoena compelling him to appear, but he has still refused to testify.

Miller, is a former aide to longtime Trump confidant and ex-adviser Roger Stone.
