The transmissions could become real street sweepers: the trial of ex-US President Donald Trump in Georgia is to be shown on the Internet by order of the court.
When Donald Trump faces his charges of attempted election interference in Georgia, the whole world will be able to watch live. Judge Scott McAfee decided on Thursday (local time) that the trial against the former US President would be streamed live on the Internet. The use of recording devices would “not disturb the administration of justice”.
McAfee, who is presiding over the mammoth trial of Trump and 18 co-defendants in Fulton County Superior Court, said he would allow all hearings and hearings related to the trial to be streamed on YouTube. The court will take over the transfer itself. “We have all our important procedures in one place Youtube channel provided by Fulton County streamed live, and our plan was to do the same in this case,” said the judge. Photo and video recordings of the proceedings by the press pool should also be allowed.

In a separate order Thursday, McAfee also allowed cell phones and laptops to be used in the courtroom. “It is hereby authorized that all parties and bystanders use recording equipment throughout the duration of this case […] or non-recording devices,” the paper says. However, the judge clarified that phones or laptops may only be used to communicate in the courtroom. Recording the trial itself and the television broadcast and live stream is not permitted Reserved.
So far, live images of the Trump trial have only been permitted in Georgia
In Georgia, cameras are allowed in the courtroom as long as they do not interfere with the proceedings. Cameras have not yet been allowed in the three other criminal cases that Trump has on his hands – in Washington also for his activities after the 2020 election, in Miami for his handling of secret government documents and in New York in connection with hush money payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels .

Fani Willis, prosecutor from Georgia’s capital Atlanta, accuses Trump in 13 counts of conspiring with allies to overturn the result of the 2020 presidential election he lost in the southern state. Among other things, he and his alleged accomplices are said to have urged public officials to violate their oath of office. The 77-year-old denies the allegations and has pleaded not guilty. A date for his trial has not yet been set.
