The special counsel's office has filed a brief in Miller v. United States, concerning Andrew Miller's appeal of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia's order holding him in contempt of court for his failure to comply with a subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Miller has argued that Mueller's appointment is unconstitutional under the Appointments Clause, and this brief defends the legality of the special counsel's role and work in some depth.
