Robert Mueller just scored a big legal victory in federal court

Although much of the media was reporting last week that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is winding things down and could put the finishing touches on the Trump-Russia investigation as early as this week, according to the DOJ, that isn’t the case. Instead, it appears Mueller is actually applying more steam.

Perhaps his latest legal victory regarding the constitutionality of his appointment has something to do with that:

“In a unanimous ruling, a three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals turned aside arguments that Mueller wields so much power as a special prosecutor that he should have been nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate.

The appeals court judges also found no flaw in Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s appointment of Mueller in the wake of the recusal of then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The court said that because the attorney general can repeal the regulations used to appoint Mueller at any time, he remains under the control of a Cabinet official.”

In a nut shell, this is a huge win for Mueller as it means that he can take aim at Roger Stone’s associate Andrew Miller once again. If you recall, when Robert Mueller tried to subpoena Miller to testify against Roger Stone in regard to a local scandal in Florida, Miller decided to fight the subpoena in court, arguing that Mueller shouldn’t have been appointed to begin with.

Of course, Miller has the right to appeal this to the Supreme Court. In fact, according to Miller’s attorney Paul Kamenar, he plans to do exactly that. But if we’re being real, it’s highly unlikely the high court would take the case. Unless he has an extreme amount of luck on his side, odds suggest he will now have no choice but to testify against Roger Stone in regards to a number of alleged criminal scandals that both of their names are attached to.

So much for winding things down.
