Mystery Mueller mayhem at a Washington court
CNN Fake News ^ | 14 December 2018 | Katelyn Polantz, Laura Robinson, Em Steck and Sam Fossum

Fridays at the DC federal courthouse are typically days of high alert for the press corps trying to discern what special counsel Robert Mueller's next legal action will be. But this Friday, court officials went to extreme measures to ensure it was as difficult as possible to figure out what Mueller's team was doing as the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit held a secret and mysterious argument about a grand jury subpoena challenge. An entire floor of the courthouse was closed to the public and press for more than an hour. During that time, attorneys secretly entered the courthouse to argue before three federal appellate judges over a grand jury subpoena.

The mystery of the subpoena appeal appears to date back to early September, when CNN witnessed several lawyers from Mueller's office entering a courtroom to argue against an unknown defense team before a trial-level judge who oversees federal grand jury-related cases.

Clearly, a challenge related to Mueller's grand jury investigation was underway.

Shortly after, that judge, Chief Judge Beryl Howell of the DC District Court, ruled on a case related to a grand jury subpoena, and the losing party attempted to appeal the ruling. The appellate court batted the case back down to Howell, who held a second sealed hearing on October 5. Though CNN was locked out of the courtroom while the arguments took place, the hearing featured the same team from Mueller's office as before, which included top criminal law appellate lawyer Michael Dreeben.

Mueller's office declined to comment on the hearings.

Who cares? The investigation over Russia has dwindled down to an investigation over Trump’s sex life.

" No recognizable attorneys were spotted coming in and out of the courtroom or even the building."

So. They have secret tunnels into the building. Interesting.

Sounds to me like someone mueller subpoenaed is challenging mueller's credibility to do such.

Im guessing Clinton. It would not be secret if it were Trump.

This this was a situation beneficial to Mueller, it would have been leaked wall-to-wall by now.

America is on the brink folks and I kid you not. No one has authority over the FBI and CIA and the Democrats are running wild. With a little luck I wont live to go through the turmoil that America faces but I have loved ones that will. Maybe the God Lord will decide to come back.

“Typically, DC Circuit Court arguments run smoothly, one after another until three cases have been argued publicly”

The Mob party has no issues with secrecy and has no issues when CNN is locked out

Thanks Magnatron.
