Judge Says Donald Trump’s Georgia Court Hearings And Trial Will Be Streamed On YouTube

A Georgia judge confirmed on Thursday that all of Donald Trump’s court proceedings, including hearings and the trial, will be live streamed on the Fulton County Court’s YouTube channel.

Judge Scott McAfee said that he would allow such coverage, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, in keeping with Georgia state court policy that leans toward camera access to the proceedings.

Trump and 18 other defendants face state racketeering and other charges related to efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in the state. Earlier on Thursday, Trump pleaded not guilty and waived the indictment.

Cameras were allowed to cover the proceedings earlier this month, when the Fulton County grand jury handed down its indictment.

A trial date has not been scheduled in the case. As of now, Georgia courts look to be the only ones that will allow for such access, as cameras are prohibited in New York courts, where Trump also faces charges related to hush money payments to Stormy Daniels, and federal courts in Washington, D.C. and Florida, where the former president faces charges related to efforts to remain in power after the election and allegations that he withheld classified documents after leaving the White House.

In Georgia, the court will operate the YouTube coverage. McAfee also is allowing reporters to use computers and other electronic devices for non-recording work during proceedings, while he has allowed pool cameras for TV and photography.
