(PartiallyPolitics.com) – Former President Donald Trump’s attorney from his second impeachment trial has warned the federal government that they may be in violation of Trump’s rights. David Schoen in an interview on “Life, Liberty & Levin” argued that he was concerned about the pressure that the federal judge handling the case might be facing.
Judge Aileen Cannon of the Southern District of Florida was appointed by Trump in 2017 as a replacement for Judge Kenneth Marra.
Host Mark Levin and Schoen also discussed the increased number of leaks relating to Trump’s case and how they may be affecting the case. As Schoen pointed out this is a “dangerous situation.” The two also pointed out that there is the right to a public trial and that the leaks should not jeopardize that.
Schoen further pointed out that the defendant’s team should have the same access to materials and documents, but currently, under the protective order, the defendant is only able to access that information when he is in front of lawyers. This is something Levin also agreed with arguing that in a public trial, both sides should be given equal access to documents.
Schoen also noted that he respected Chris Kise, the former President’s lawyer in this case, and argued that Trump’s criminal defense attorneys were ready to fight.
However, he also pointed out that as Cannon was appointed by Trump it is likely that she will continue to face increased scrutiny over being involved in a case where Trump is the defendant. He did add though not much scrutiny or criticism is heard about the judges in Washington, D.C., or about who appointed them.
