"They also cited two tweets following Saipov's arrest calling for him to face the death penalty."

'The man accused of killing eight people by driving a truck into a New York City bike path last fall is seeking to avoid the death penalty because of incendiary tweets by Donald Trump. '

'He was charged in an indictment with eight counts of murder and other crimes including attempted murder and providing material support to Islamic State. '

'Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, which was the deadliest assault on New York City since September 11, 2001. '

'They asked that if the judge declines to bar the death penalty altogether, an independent prosecutor be appointed to make the decision in place of Sessions. '
