The trial has been delayed twice. A judge last month postponed the trial while he looked into whether there was prosecutorial misconduct after the government monitored defense team emails to find the source of a news leak.
The judge, Capt. Aaron Rugh, on Monday removed the lead prosecutor.
Rugh is looking into whether to dismiss the case because of misconduct.
