A Texas Planned Parenthood lawyer accused of conspiring with a district attorney against a man who shot a video in which the sale of fetal body parts is purportedly discussed has denied the charge, but admits the prosecutor gave him a copy of the footage.

"The recent filings by the Harris County District Attorney confirm that the DA shared confidential documents and information with abortion provider Planned Parenthood, colluding with it in the prosecution of David Daleiden," attorney Peter Breen told Breitbart Texas.

"These filings also include evidence that appears to show that the DA's office worked with Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast to undermine the Texas Attorney General's independent investigation of that abortion provider.

"The conduct of Harris County prosecutors in this case is outrageous and illegal. We look forward to pressing our motion to quash this indictment in court."

Daleiden is leader of the California-based Center for Medical Progress that released the secretly filmed videos used to accuse the women's health group of trading in aborted fetal tissue.

He faces a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record for allegedly using a fake driver's license to conceal his identity and a misdemeanor count related to purchasing human organs.
