According to US media reports, Fulton District Judge Scott McAfee has ordered that all hearings be broadcast live on the Fulton District Court’s YouTube channel and television.
This will be the first public hearing in any of the cases against Trump, but McAfee’s decision will be void if any of the accused defendants takes the case to federal court.
Trump’s White House Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, who was among the defendants, had applied for the case to be heard in federal court.
Trump accused of “election interference” in Georgia
Trump was indicted by the Atlanta grand jury on August 15 on charges of interfering with the 2020 election results in the state of Georgia, and surrendered on August 24 as part of the indictment.
It was the first time a criminal record photo was taken for the arrest file of Trump, who paid $200,000 bail when he surrendered. Trump went down in history as the “first American president with a criminal record”.
Trump has raised more than $7.1 million for his candidacy since he surrendered on August 24.
