WACO, TX (KXXV) -

McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna said he will ask to be recused from the second Twin Peaks trial. 

According to a motion, Reyna was served a subpoena to testify during Matthew Clendennen's trial, set for Nov. 6. 

If a Reyna was selected as a witness, he is unable to prosecute the case. 

On Monday, Oct. 30, 20 attorneys of other bikers involved in upcoming Twin Peaks biker cases filed notices that they would select Reyna as a material defense witness for their cases as well. 

The attorneys believe that Reyna's recusal in Clendennen's trial applies to their cases as well. 

Reyna requested the recusal and asks the court appoint an attorney pro tem in his place. 

"I cannot comment on the Clendennen matter due to the gag order issued by Judge Shaver," Reyna said. "As for the other cases, with the exception of one, I do not intend to recuse our office."

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
