The magistrate judge, David Hennessy, said that Teixeira posed a continued threat to national security Teixeira’s lawyers argued in a new filing on Monday that the judge should reverse his decision to keep Teixeira detained, pointing to several other criminal defendants who were released while awaiting trial, including Trump and his co-defendant Walt Nauta.
