Judge Aileen CannonJudge Aileen Cannon agreed Monday to a Justice Department (DOJ) request to hold hearings to examine potential conflicts of interest of two attorneys representing former President Trump’s co-defendants in the Mar-a-Lago case.

The move comes after the DOJ warned that the two attorneys are representing other clients who may be called as witnesses against Walt Nauta, Trump’s valet who moved boxes in and out of a storage room, and Carlos De Oliveira, the Mar-a-Lago property manager who assisted him.

Nauta’s attorney, Stanley Woodward, has represented “at least seven other individuals who have been questioned in connection with the investigation,” including those who have testified about Nauta, the DOJ disclosed last month.

“Nauta should be thoroughly advised of the potential conflicts and attendant risks,” the DOJ wrote.

De Oliveira is facing charges for obstruction of justice and lying to authorities. He’s represented by John Irving, who is also serving as counsel to a witness the DOJ said “has information demonstrating the falsity of statements De Oliveira has made to the government.”
