    Judge holds Roger Stone associate in contempt for refusing to testify in Russia investigation

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/world...=.2097d8f4c414

    A federal judge has found a witness in contempt for refusing to testify before the grand jury hearing evidence in special counsel Robert S. Mueller IIIís investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

    U.S. District Chief Judge Beryl Howell made the ruling Friday after a sealed hearing to discuss Andrew Millerís refusal to appear before the grand jury. Miller is a former aide to longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone.
    ================================================== ==============
    'Miller had fought and lost a court battle earlier this month to quash a subpoena, after a judge issued a 93-page opinion saying Miller must testify before the grand jury.'

    Miller is a close associate of Trump adviser Roger Stone. Stone & his associates have been implicated by Mueller's probe. His lack of willingness to testify speaks volumes.

    It looks like there's a jail cell in his future.

    you should read your own article.

    In a closed hearing Friday in a Washington, DC, district court, Judge Beryl Howell found Miller in contempt and then stayed that ruling until this Monday to allow for an appeal to be filed.

    you seem to only read headlines and what you want to read.

    He still refused to testify. Maybe he's guilty of something of interest to Mueller.

    Then he could plead the fifth. He doesn't want to testify against Stone.

    Stone looks too slick to be not guilty of something. His associate Randy Credico has been called to testify. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Randy_Credico

    And that appeal if any will be denied. He can refuse to answer question in front of the GJ, invoke his 5A, and Mueller can offer "Use immunity" and he is required to testify.

    Technically he can plead the 5th the entire time it is a constitutional protection.

    He can simply say he doesn't recall if that is the case as well.
