In a court filings, lawyers for James Wolfe, former security chief for the Senate Intelligence Committee, said comments by Trump after Wolfe’s June 7 arrest suggesting that Wolfe was “a leaker” were “highly prejudicial” and asked the court to issue an order prohibiting further public comments by Trump and others “likely to interfere with a fair trial for Mr. Wolfe.”
