R. Kelly’s lawyer, Michael Leonard joins BNC to discuss his recent departure from the case. Leonard and attorney Steve Greenberg requested a federal judge to remove them from the singer’s legal defense team.

“In general, as a trial lawyer, you have to have a comfort level that the case will be tried in the manner in which you want it to be tried, by the people that you want to try it,” Leonard tells BNC.
