National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC), an ethics watchdog group, along with Andrew Miller, a former aide to Roger Stone who challenged the constitutionality of Special Counsel Robert Mueller with NLPC’s support, filed a complaint against Mueller prosecutor Aaron Zelinsky today with the Office of Professional Responsibility at the Justice Department.
The 17-page complaint with exhibits alleges ethical misconduct by abusing the grand jury in seeking Mr. Miller’s testimony, misleading the court at a May 29, 2019 hearing about why the government failed to expedite the case after the court of appeals denied the Mueller challenge on February 26, 2019, and switching grand juries on Mr. Miller without informing his attorney and the court.
“Mr. Zelinsky abused the grand jury by seeking Mr. Miller’s testimony long after Mr. Stone was indicted, which violates Department of Justice policy prohibiting gathering evidence on a defendant after indictment, unless the … Read More ➡

National Legal and Policy Center today filed an ethics complaint against U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer with both the U.S. Senate Ethics Committee as well as with the New York Bar Disciplinary Committee.
The Complaints detail the threatening comments that Senator Schumer made earlier this week on the Supreme Court steps targeting Associate Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
During the Supreme Court’s hearing on a controversial abortion case Schumer stated in part:
“…I want to tell you, Gorsuch… I want to tell you, Kavanaugh… you have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Senator Schumer’s remarks drew a public rebuke from Chief Justice John Roberts, the legal community including the American Bar Association, the public, and many Members of Congress, led by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
“These outrageous threats from Senator Schumer must … Read More ➡
Tomorrow, former Special Counsel Robert Mueller will testify before the House Judiciary Committee and the House Intelligence Committee about his two-year investigation into Russian interference with the 2016 election.
While the Justice Department yesterday ordered Mueller to stay within the confines of his report, there are unanswered questions about Mueller’s conflict of interest that have not been answered but are the subject of a pending FOIA lawsuit by the National Legal and Policy Center.
President Trump has repeatedly said Mueller has a conflict for a number of reasons, such as a dispute with membership fees at Trump’s Virginia golf club, his relationship with fired FBI Director James Comey, not getting appointed by Trump to head the FBI, and his law firm’s work with the Clinton Foundation. Here’s what Mueller should be asked:
- On May 16, 2017, you had an interview with President Trump in the White House about the vacancy
Andrew Miller will testify before the Grand Jury at 11:00 AM today. Miller’s appearance follows a nearly year-long court battle over the Constitutionality of the appointment former Special Counsel, Robert Mueller.
On Tuesday, May 28, 2019 Miller’s legal challenge was remanded from the D.C. Circuit to the District Court following its February 26, 2019 ruling rejecting the argument.
Miller’s attorney, Paul Kamenar, made a final attempt to quash Miller’s subpoena on the grounds that since Mueller’s investigation is over, and Roger Stone has been indicted, it would be improper under Department of Justice policy and precedent to use the Grand Jury to obtain pre-trial evidence on someone already indicted.
The exception to that rule is if the government is seeking to indict the defendant on other crimes or that were other possible targets for which evidence was needed – opening the door for compelling testimony.

Andrew Miller, a witness in the Russia investigation, today agreed to honor a subpoena issued last year to appear before the grand jury convened by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. The former aide to GOP operative Roger Stone had been refusing to appear on the grounds that Mueller’s appointment and authority were unconstitutional.
Miller’s appearance before the grand jury will effectively end the constitutional challenge to Mueller.
Miller’s challenge went through the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, up to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, and back down to the District Court. Today, District Court Judge Beryl Howell denied a motion by Miller to further stay the subpoena. Miller’s attorney, Paul Kamenar, argued that grand juries are not allowed to gather evidence after an indictment has been made. It has been presumed that the Special Counsel’s interest in Miller pertained … Read More ➡
From Courthouse News Service by Britain Eakin:
Challenging the lack of cooperation by former Roger Stone associate Andrew Miller, prosecutors told the D.C. Circuit Thursday that the grand jury that worked with special counsel Robert Mueller still needs Miller’s testimony.
Filed this morning by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, the government’s 21-page opposition brief indicates that the grand jury empaneled by Mueller is likely still working, and that more criminal charges related to Miller’s testimony are possible.
The grand jury working with Mueller had subpoenaed Miller in May 2018 for testimony concerning Stone’s relationship to WikiLeaks, its founder Julian Assange and Guccifer 2.0, a fake persona allegedly tied to Russian intelligence that filtered hacked Democratic emails damaging to Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.
