Kristin Davis, also known as the "Manhattan Madam", was expected to testify before a grand jury Friday in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe. Miller refused to appear before a grand jury Friday in Washington.

The refusal by the witness, Andrew Miller, prompted a sealed hearing before a federal judge, who then made the ruling, the Post said.

Russian Federation has denied meddling in the election.

If Mueller was not correctly appointed, that calls into question the legality of his client to testify, Kamenar argued.

She has known Stone, a longtime associate of President Donald Trump, for a decade.

In a related development, another Stone associate, comedian and talk show host Randy Credico confirmed that he had been subpoenaed by the special counsel's office, which is probing alleged Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election.

Asked to confirm that he is expecting no movement at all on Thursday, Mourinho added: "The information I have is no". They [Leicester] are recently champions and after that the stability of being in the first half of the table.


Stone has not been contacted by the special counsel's office, but he appears to be under investigation as part of the probe into Russian election interference and possible collusion between Trump's team and Russian officials. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he hopes to have President Donald Trump's nominee confirmed to replace retired Justice Anthony Kennedy before the new court session begins October 1.

The statement from lawyer Grant Smith said the exchange "provides no evidence of collaboration or collusion with Guccifer 2.0 or anyone else in the alleged hacking of the [Democratic National Committee] e-mails".

Jason Sullivan, a social media expert who worked with Stone, has testified to the grand jury.

Earlier in 2018, Stone associates also said Stone claimed to have been briefed by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange about stolen emails the organization had obtained before they were released.

An indictment announced last month accused 12 Russian military intelligence officers of hacking into the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, Trump's Democratic opponent, and the Democratic Party, and releasing tens of thousands of private communications in a sweeping Kremlin-orchestrated conspiracy to interfere in the 2016 US election.

Kamenar also said a prosecutor with powers as broad as Mueller's should be treated like a US attorney and be subject to Senate confirmation.
