How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Supreme Court Intervenes in Mueller investigation of mysterious foreign firm

U.S. Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has intervened for the first time in Robert Mueller’s 19-month special counsel investigation into Russian election interference and President Trump’s former and current aides.

Chief Justice John Roberts, a conservative appointed by President George W. Bush, on Sunday issued an order to temporarily put the breaks on a contempt citation against an undisclosed foreign-owned firm.

Roberts granted the request a day after the company petitioned the Supreme Court to intervene arguing it is immune from grand jury subpoenas because it’s an extension of a foreign government. Roberts also temporarily halted a financial penalty imposed by a judge for failing to comply with the subpoena.

The federal government has until Dec. 31 to respond to the firm’s petition.

The circumstances surrounding the case remain a mystery because the case has not been made public.

What is certain that the case involves Mueller, who since he was appointed in May 2017 has charged 133 people and convicted three senior Trump associates.
