The Georgia court’s YouTube account and television stations will broadcast live coverage of Donald Trump’s election meddling trial. According to a ruling issued on Thursday by Fulton County Judge Scott McAfee, journalists are permitted to use cellphones and computers inside the courthouse so long as they are not recording, according to local news source WSB-TV.
According to WSB-TV, Judge McAfee stated at the hearing that “we have been livestreaming all of our major proceedings on a Fulton County-provided YouTube channel.” “And that’s what we intended to do in this case as well. Therefore, a YouTube feed will be available continuously.
Trump’s trial may still take place somewhere other than the Fulton County courtroom, though. Former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows is one of Trump’s co-defendants who wants to have their cases transferred to federal court. McAfee’s decision won’t apply if Trump follows a similar course and is successful in having his trial transferred to a federal court because federal courts normally forbid cameras in the courtroom.
