"Manhattan Madam" testified before grand jury in Mueller probe Friday

Mueller team interviews 'Manhattan Madam'

Andrew Miller, an associate of Republican operative and longtime Donald Trump ally Roger Stone, was reportedly held in contempt of court Friday after refusing to appear before special counsel Robert Mueller's grand jury.

The grand jury testimony on Friday comes as Mueller's team faces its first major test in court with the trial of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in the Eastern District of Virginia, where Manafort faces charges of bank fraud, tax evasion and other financial crimes. A former US senator, Sessions was one of Trump's earliest Senate backers and was involved in campaign operations.

Russian Federation has denied meddling in the election. A former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, Mueller appears to be putting a focus on Stone, a political consultant and longtime informal adviser to Trump.

After months of investigation Mueller now appears to be focusing on Stone, a longtime adviser to Trump who was a political consultant during his 2016 election campaign.

Mueller's outreach may mean he is focusing in part on whether Stone may have had advance knowledge of material detrimental to Trump's 2016 Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton that USA intelligence agencies have concluded was obtained by Russian Federation through hacking.

Kangana Ranaut has a message for PM-Elect Imran Khan
"I really hope and appeal that we have a really attractive relationship henceforth". I recently congratulated Imran Khan on his victory in the elections.

Stone, through his attorney, has acknowledged having a "24-word exchange with someone on Twitter claiming to be Guccifer 2.0".

A NY bank executive testified Friday that Paul Manafort received more than $16 million in loans after the bank's chairman expressed interest in joining Donald Trump's Cabinet if he won the 2016 presidential election. Kamenar says Judge Beryl Howell has stayed her contempt order until Monday, so that Miller can appeal to the D.C. Circuit Court. "I am the Godfather to her 2 year old son".

Davis once ran a high-end prostitution ring and went to jail as part of the scandal surrounding then-Democratic New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer.

Miller agreed he was acting in contempt of the order Howell issued last week, "and we filed a motion to that effect", said Kamenar. Despite this, prosecutors told the court Friday, Miller has still refused to show up.
