Federal judge rejects yet another lawsuit against Mueller investigation

President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden meet with senior advisors in the Oval Office to ...

The Trump administration has constantly attempted to dismiss the Robert Mueller-led criminal investigation against the president, calling in unlawful and illegal. Andrew Miller, who had a close relationship with one of Donald Trump’s top aides, brought a challenge forward to the federal government questioning Mueller’s right to investigate Trump. The challenge was quickly dismissed by a judge on Thursday, giving even more credibility and support to the ongoing investigation.

A judge that sits in the District Court of Washington, DC, stated that the special counsel assigned to the case has powers that “[fall] well within the boundaries the Constitution permits.” In her ruling, she stated:

The Attorney General’s powers to define altogether the scope of a Special Counsel’s authority and rescind such authority at will give the Attorney General the effective power to oversee, supervise, and countermand a Special Counsel in exercising such authority.”

The latest challenge was skeptical of the subpoenas Mueller had issued to gather documents relevant to the investigation. Many of these document concerned Miller himself, and he was willing to testify voluntarily to the investigation on mid-May. However, he didn’t appear in the scheduled day, or in the deadline that one of the subpoenas had settled.  Mueller extended the deadline to June, and Miller didn’t comply by those dates either.

This is not the first time a lawsuit has been presented regarding this topic, as former campaign chairman Paul Manafort also filed one, which was quickly turned down before Manafort was turned into arrest.

Andrew Miller’s attorney released a statement after the dismissal of their lawsuit, saying:

We’re obviously disappointed with the decision, but it’s clear the judge took our challenge to Mueller’s constitutionality seriously by her lengthy opinion and we are exploring ways to appeal that decision.”

With these latest developments, it starts to become clear that the Trump administration is alone in its claims of the Mueller investigation being unconstitutional, as the national consensus about the subject grows more solid with every scandal and lawsuit.
