An associate of President Donald Trump's veteran adviser Roger Stone was acquitted on Friday after refusing to appear as a witness before a grand jury met as part of the Russia investigation of US special adviser Robert Mueller. .

Andrew Miller's refusal to comply with the citation from Mueller's office caused a sealed hearing before a federal judge, who then made the decision, the Washington Post and CNN said.

CNN also reported that the office of the special adviser, which is investigating the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election, had quoted the comedian and talk show host Randy Credico, another associate of Stone.

Reuters could not immediately confirm the reports, and Credico did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

CNN also reported that Kristin Davis, another Stone ally and a former Manhattan lady, would appear before the grand jury on Friday.

The last witnesses in Mueller's research seem to suggest that he is focusing, at least in part, on Stone, one of Trump's first sponsors with a reputation as an aggressive political agent.

Russia has denied any interference in the elections. Trump has repeatedly said that there was no connivance between his campaign and Russia and has called Mueller's investigation a witch hunt.

Stone, who has denied wrongdoing, said earlier that Mueller contacted eight of his associates, but that the special lawyer's team has not contacted him.

Mueller issued a subpoena to Miller earlier this year, making him the third associate of Stone to be identified as contacted by Mueller's investigators.

Miller's lawyer had tried to cancel the summons. However, that challenge was rejected and US District Judge Beryl Howell found Miller in contempt on Friday, but suspended the pending appeal, the Post reported.

In its report, CNN said Credico would comply with the request and testify on September 7, citing his lawyer.

Jason Sullivan, a social media expert who worked with Stone, testified before the grand jury. John Kakanis, assistant and conductor of Stone, has also been quoted.

Mueller's reach may mean that he is focusing on whether Stone may have had prior knowledge of material detrimental to Trump's Democratic opponent in 2016 Hillary Clinton that US intelligence agencies have concluded that it was hacked by Russia and sent to the founder of WikiLeaks Julian Assange to publish.

The US Senate intelligence panel, which is among several congressional committees that conduct research on Russia, is also investigating the role of Wikileaks.
