An attorney for a white Chicago police officer charged with 2014 shooting death of a black teen is considering asking for a change of venue over statements made by the mayor.

FOX's Jeff Monosso reports:

Officer Jason Van Dyke was in court as an arraignment date and an expected not guilty plea on multiple counts of murder was set for December 29 in the shooting death of armed black teen Laquan McDonald...

And there could soon be a request for a change of venue with defense attorney Dan Herbert citing words from Mayor Rahm Emanuel...

(Herbert) "He has essentially told everyone in the public, everyone in the city counsel, that my client murdered Mr. McDonald, that he's a bad apple."

But Mayor Emanuel has also been under big pressure to resign amid continued demonstrations here and what protesters call a cover up... And efforts to get recently released dashcam video of the McDonald shooting sealed.
