Where to watch Trump’s court proceedings?

All hearings and trials related to the case brought against the 19 co-defendants, including the ex-president, by Fani Willis, District Attorney of Fulton County will be broadcast on the Fulton County Court YouTube channel, the judge announced.

McAfee said in his order that members of the media would be allowed to use computers and cellphones inside the courtroom. However, they will not be allowed to record during court proceedings using those devices. Pool coverage for television, radio and still photography will be allowed.

It is expected that Trump’s trial, as well as trial of some of the other big names on the list of co-defendants, will attract global attention. The decision to televise the court proceedings stand in stark difference with the lack of transparency in the federal court.

The judge’s decision to televise court proceedings came after Monday’s hearing on whether White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows should have his case transferred to U.S. District Court. During Monday’s hearing, journalists were barred from bringing cell phones, laptops and cameras into the Richard B. Russell federal building in Atlanta, Georgia.

If Meadows is successful in relocating his case, he would make the way for other defendants to join him if they so choose.
