SCOTUS Rules Against Mystery Company in Russia Probe

The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday a mysterious company tied up in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation must comply with a subpoena or continue paying a daily fine.

According to Politico, the decision will force the company — which has only been described as a corporation owned by a foreign government — to follow the subpoena first issued to it last fall.

Chief Justice John Roberts referred the case to the full court, Politico noted, one month after he issued a stay on the fines being levied on the corporation.

The case has been shrouded in secrecy. An entire floor of a Washington, D.C. courtroom was sealed off last month as lawyers for each side argued in front of a judge. The identity of the witness has yet to be revealed.

Early rumors suggested the witness might have been President Donald Trump, but that was debunked by Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow.

Mueller’s probe began in May 2017 over allegations the Trump campaign might have colluded with Russia to defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. No such evidence has been made public, but the investigation is ongoing and many details remain secret.

None of the Supreme Court justices issued a public dissent on the Tuesday ruling, which could indicate the court wants to stay out of the Russia matter.

“The fact that no justice publicly noted a dissent from today’s order suggests that the court is inclined to stay out of this dispute altogether,” University of Texas law professor Stephen Vladeck told CNN.

The unnamed corporation filed a motion on Monday that asked for a judicial review of the case.

  1. This whole mess is a farce. There was no collusion or anything else. Mueller and team are creating crimes and therefore beguiling the Supreme Court to rule when they have nothing to rule for or against. Mueller is a master of deception with the army of bloodsucking wayward lawyers. There was far more criminal activity by the Dems during the 2016 election that Mueller refuses to investigate…duh! This is skullduggery plus by the swamp and really shows hoe low the FBI and DOJ sank under Obama. Obama will go down as the worst example of a president in US history.

    1. Fully agree JC. What keep anyone from blowing the lid off of Obama, Hillary and Bill and all of the socialist libs that have caused more damage and a total disregard for the good of the American people. Dems are indeed the master of deception.

      1. Gary, are Obama and Hillary running the country ? STOP walking backwards; check the present and the future. You see how America became the era of Putinism. Putin gave us your loved Trump and hopefully Trump will go to jail one day for his committed crimes. Trump and his father are descendants of the Nazis. Some people like you, JC and Trump are so in loved with Obama and Clinton that don’t stop to mention them, always in your dreams… when doesn’t serve any purpose. Just be glad you don’t work for the Federal government!

        1. No, they are NOT running the country but their past crimes keep coming up to bite them in their butts. As well as the fraud that was squatting in our White House that wasn’t a U.S. citizen. I could go on but apparently you drink way too much kool-aid and/or listen to those msm that throw out lie after lie. Trump has done nothing wrong for him to go to prison!!!!! So why don’t you just get a life.

  2. I’m afraid Obama will look like some kind of American hero because the loony left write the history books. Look at what they are teaching in our schools today.

  3. WHO COULD NOT SEE THROUGH THIS INTENTIONAL ATTEMPT BY THE MORALLY BANKRUPT LEFT TO STOP THIS PRESIDENT FROM DRAINING THE FILTHY SWAMP….IF WE HAVE A SECURE BORDER, THE DEEP STATE NO LONGER HAS EASY ACCESS TO CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING, DRUG RUNNING, GUN RUNNING, ORGAN HARVESTING FROM 3RD WORLD COUNTRY REFUGEES, ADRENACROME HARVESTING FROM THE CHILDREN THEY MURDER VIA SATANIC RITUALS….THIS IS THE TRUTH PEOPLE…WAKE UP PLEASE….VERY NEFARIOUS FORCES HAVE TAKEN OVER THIS COUNTRY AND TRULY THE ENTIRE WORLD. PEDOPHILIA IS THE HEAD OF THE SNAKE…THE VATICAN IS PROOF!

  4. I feel sorry for you JC; sorry about your ignorance. “There is no worse blind man than the one who doesn’t want to see” You are repeating Trump’s words like a fool: No sense and no evidence. Get an education and a life as well.

    1. What JC wrote is the TRUTH. It seems like you need to get an education on our country. Your lame comments aren’t really worth commenting on so I’m DONE WITH YOU!!!!!!SUV7
