BREAKING: Judge rules mystery company owned by foreign country must comply with grand jury subpoena, suspected of being part of Mueller’s investigation

Days after a floor belonging to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit was shut down due to an argument shrouded in mystery, three circuit judges ruled Tuesday that a corporation owned by a foreign country must turn over information in a grand jury subpoena battle.
The federal appeals court ruled late Tuesday that the “the Corporation” owned by “Country A” must comply with the grand jury subpoena.
The article goes on to state the following:
The three-page ruling said that the company had sought to squash the subpoena because it is “immune under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act” and because the subpoena would “require the Corporation to Violate Country A’s domestic law.”
However, “[t]he district court denied the motion,” says the ruling, signed by Judges David S. Tatel, Thomas B. Griffith, and Stephen F. Williams.
The subpoena is suspected to be related to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference. The grand jury case was put on the docket in October, but CNN witnessed several lawyers from Mueller’s office going into the courtroom as early as early September. The courtroom involved an unknown defense team and a trial-level judge who oversees federal grand jury-related cases.
