Meanwhile, from the president: He's quoting Dershowitz talking to Tucker on Fox News about Mueller, and asking, with a question mark, whether "the whole thing" was "illegally ... set up."
Recall that every judge to consider the propriety of Mueller's appointment and authority has sided with Mueller, including Judge Ellis in Virginia — who questioned Mueller's team sharply in court.
Thread about the brief we're awaiting by midnight — but still don't have — in Andrew Miller's appeal to his contempt order. He's challenging of Mueller's authority to subpoena him for the grand jury.
Five minutes ‘til midnight. No filing yet.
UPDATE: Miller's brief is in. It is dated 9/11, but "entered" at 12:01a 9/12. (I deleted the tweet saying it was not in.)
Here's the docket entry:
Oof. The brief is ... rough. Here is the first page of the filing.
JUST IN: Here's the link to Andrew Miller's DC Circuit brief challenging Robert Mueller's authority to subpoena him to appear before the grand jury —> scribd.com/document/38840…
Per the DC Circuit's automated system, Miller's lawyer was about a minute and a half late. (Won't likely make a difference for Miller, technically, but the court knows and his lawyer has certainly not made a good showing these past few days.)
Sasha suggests Miller's lawyer might need to get another 90-second extension so that he will have filed in time.
In short, what a shitshow. And we've not even gotten to the argument yet.
So, yeah, the brief *definitely* does not comport with the court's rules.

Update: At 4:34a, Miller’s lawyer filed an “ERRATA,” with a (presumably) corrected version of his brief. Two minutes later, he also filed an Appendix. (I’ll upload them shortly.)
More: The errata fling added 23 pages to the document. It, the appendix, and the original filing all are now included and available in my story. buzzfeednews.com/article/chrisg…
Update: The DC Circuit modified the "errata" filing by Andrew Miller's lawyer in his appeal of the contempt order to characterize it as a "corrected appellant brief." buzzfeednews.com/article/chrisg…
