Trump and his co-defendants, Walt Nauta and Carlos DeOliveira, had asked Cannon to strike a variety of what they characterized as prejudicial allegations. Cannon wrote that she agreed “that much of the language in the Superseding Indictment is legally unnecessary to serve the function of an indictment” as detailed in case law. She further noted “the risks that can flow from a prosecutor’s decision to include in a charging document an extensive narrative account of his or her view of the facts, especially in cases of significant public interest.”
