WASHINGTON-An employee of the former trump campaign consultant Roger stone has been held in contempt of court, to appear after he refused, in front of a grand jury, the special counsel Russia-investigation. His lawyer says he will challenge the constitutionality of Robert Müller-appointment of a special counsel.

Paul Kamenar, a lawyer for Andrew Miller, says Müller, the appointment is unconstitutional. He argues that the Deputy Prosecutor Rod Rosenstein did not have the authority, the appointment of a special counsel, and that each state should have a lawyer with Miller far-reaching powers of confirmation by the Senate. Rosenstein appointed Mueller to Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the investigation.

Miller worked for stone during Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Miller refused to appear before a grand jury on Friday in Washington.

Miller plans to appeal.
