Kristin Davis, also known as the 'Manhattan Madam, ' will testify before a grand jury in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation on Friday, her spokeswoman Lainie Speiser told CNN.

Andrew Miller's refusal to comply with the subpoena from Mueller's office prompted a sealed hearing before a federal judge, who then made the ruling, the Washington Post and CNN reported.

"There's been no authority, we say, that gives the Justice Department the power to appoint Mr. Mueller", Kamenar told reporters outside the courthouse in Washington after Miller was held in contempt for refusing to appear before the grand jury.

Russian Federation has denied any meddling in the election.

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. Stone said that he was "highly confident she will testify truthfully if called upon to do so".

Miller worked for Stone during Trump's campaign.

However, the greatest buzz around a transfer was the potential deal for Leicester City and England centre back Harry Maguire . It gives us a couple of weeks to recover people and to prepare people better and to focus on the players that are available.

Stone, who has denied any wrongdoing, has previously said that eight of his associates have been contacted by Mueller but that the special counsel's team has not contacted him.

Had the judge not issued the stay, Miller could have been jailed until he agreed to testify before the grand jury and provide the subpoenaed documents.

In addition to Miller, John Kakanis, described as a personal assistant to Stone, along with social media expert Jason Sullivan, were subpoenaed by the special counsel over the spring.

Earlier in 2018, Stone associates also said Stone claimed to have been briefed by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange about stolen emails the organization had obtained before they were released.

The U.S. Senate intelligence panel, which is among several congressional committees conducting Russian Federation probes, is also investigating Wikileaks' role.

An indictment announced last month accused 12 Russian military intelligence officers of hacking into the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton, Trump's Democratic opponent, and the Democratic Party, and releasing tens of thousands of private communications in a sweeping Kremlin-orchestrated conspiracy to interfere in the 2016 USA election.
