Attorney Paul Kamenar, who is believed to be representing Miller, told theTimes that he intends to fight the subpoena by arguing Mueller's appointment was unconstitutional. Others have made similar claims, but have been unsuccessful.

Miller is thethird ex-Stone associate who has reportedly been subpoenaed in the Mueller investigation -- former Stone aidesJohn Kakanis and Jason Sullivan have also been called to appear before a grand jury.

Some of Stone's contacts during the 2016 presidential election have drawn scrutiny, including hiscommunications with WikiLeaks.He worked briefly on the Trump campaign, and has since served as an adviser to the president.

The Washington Postreported earlier this monththat Stone was in contact with a Russian national who offered damaging information on candidateHillary Clintonin exchange for a $2 million payment. Stone said he turned down the meeting.

Stone has been a central figure in the special counsel's investigation. He acknowledged to The Hill last week that it's a "possibility" he will be indicted in Mueller's investigation
