‘Irredeemably Insulting’: Indicted Proud Boy Asks Judge to ‘Sever’ Case from Co-Defendants Because of Their Lawyer’s ‘Highly Inappropriate and Prejudicial Statements’

The motion from Christopher Kuehne, a 47-year-old former Marine scout sniper, cites the “highly inappropriate and prejudicial statements” that attorney Albert Watkins made in a Talking Points Memo article on Tuesday.
