Georgia Trial of Trump And 18 Others To Be Televised and Live Streamed

Georgia Trial of Trump And 18 Others To Be Televised and Live Streamed

It’s not clear at this point how much of the case even will remain in state court.

The Atlanta Judge presiding over the trials of Donald Trump and 18 co-defendants in the wide-ranging RICO and related indictments, has determined that the trial will be televised and live streamed.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports:

A Fulton County judge on Thursday said that all court proceedings in the election interference case against former President Donald Trump and 18 co-defendants will be live streamed and televised.

Judge Scott McAfee also said he is following the precedent set by fellow Fulton Judge Robert McBurney; all hearings and trials will be broadcast on the Fulton County Court YouTube channel.

In an order issued Thursday, McAfee said members of the media would be allowed to use computers and cellphones inside the courtroom for non-recording purposes during court proceedings. There will be pool coverage for television, radio and still photography.

Of course, we don’t know how much of the case actually will stay in state court. Mark Meadows already has a motion pending in federal court to remove the case from state court. A hearing was held on Monday, but the federal court has not ruled yet. If the Meadows case is removed, it’s very likely that at least several other defendants, including Trump, will be able to remove the case.

My initial reaction is that this is a good thing all around. We will not have to rely on media filters as to the evidence.



Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


Has the judge ruled on whether the circus will have three rings, and cages holding the defendants? If so, I think the prosecutors should be permitted to use whips and chairs to keep the defendants at bay. How many clowns will there be?

GA case is already falling apart.

Report: Raffensperger Testimony Supports Trump Defense in Georgia Case

    The process of lawfare is the punishment.

    Those who know me here know that I am not a big fan of present day Trump, but there’s no other explanation other than politically-motivated lawfare and election interference to explain the aggressive ramming of this case through the courts in the heart of election season.

    thalesofmiletus in reply to starride. | September 1, 2023 at 10:05 am

    [[[Raffensperger testified that the call, while “extraordinary,” was a “settlement negotiation” in the context of an argument over whether to pursue another recount of votes — not a demand to make up new votes.]]]

    This has been general knowledge for years.

    Again, it is not clear what the crime is in this case, nor who the star witnesses are.

      That has puzzled me too since this stupid action started in the first place, but as near as I can figure it seems that the allegation is that when Trump asked Raffensperger to “find” ~12K invalid votes, he meant “<air-quotes>find</air-quotes>. In other words meant “fabricate”. Of course such an allegation is a massive exercise in mind-reading and projection; apparently if Willis were ever to say such a thing, that’s what she would have meant by it, so she invited the grand jury to imagine that that’s what Trump meant too. Which is obvious BS.

As with all failed states, show trials are a means of showing power. The question is who will be the Roland Freisler.

It’s time we started taking a very serious look at secession before there’s a shooting war.

Every circus needs clowns. The prosecution has made some beautiful balloon animals, but they’re going up against a porcupine and we know how that goes.

The evidence? This hack clown could prove 100% that every tweet is accurate as relayed in that “indictment” (The one that apparently issued before the grand jury voted). It doesn’t matter. There is no crime. It does a great disservice to represent this as having any legitimacy whatsoever. It is a highly partisan abuse of the law that endangers our republic.

Didn’t hurt Rittenhouse. In fact it probably helped.

I think the more telling event will be the judge’s response to the GA prosecutors recent filing requesting the court to advise the defendents requesting a speedy trial that they waive certain rights, mostly discovery rights.

Cernovich and Technofog have both pointed out major flaws in citing of court cases in that filing. If the Judge goes along we know that he is heavily biased, or very lazy.

    “Didn’t hurt Rittenhouse. In fact it probably helped.”

    I remember the George Zimmerman trial live stream here on LI, as well as Andrew Branca’s comments before and during the trial.

    They bore NO resemblance to most media reporting, and I remember telling my Zimmerman-hating friends that they were going to be very disappointed at the verdict.

    Televised proceedings might not help legally, but the public getting to see the clowns on the prosecution tripping over their big feet will be enlightening.

      Watching the Zimmerman trial was the start of my political awakening. I was in disbelief at how twisted and inaccurate the news portrayed what was actually happening in the trial. It was also my introduction to Andrew, William and Legal Insurrection. Thank you all for helping me see the truth!

        JohnSmith100 in reply to fogflyer. | September 1, 2023 at 7:32 pm

        OK, I was already jaded the before Zimmerman, a 100 fold more so after it. We have a bunch of people who still do not have justice, and that pisses me off. If we cannot get justice for them, at least we can destroy every prick behind those injustices, only then will we be comfortable getting along with them.

    Of course the judge is biased , it’s all been played out by the WH, Kemp, CIA, FBI, etc

    We know the verdict

Mixed feelings, they can’t be trusted, it’s a total set up with Prosecutor, Prosecutor Judge, and slanted Jury.
They have to be hoping it will look bad for DJT.

It should be advertised as a reality TV show since it’s scripted and its conclusion predetermined.

Made for TV trial? Putting Trump into the ‘briar patch’ of TV is good news for Trump. The case is hot garbage and folks will be able to see it first hand. Plus all the different live blog commentary on YouTube or Rumble by various legal experts.

    The vast majority of the legal community to date has not exactly shown themselves as profiles in courage in calling out the BS of these political prosecutions (Prof, Jacobson excepted). In fact, some, including some republican politicians, are jumping on the police state bandwagon.

      MarkS in reply to Concise. | September 1, 2023 at 8:12 am

      the question I have is why,..why is the swamp, Deep State, or whatever you want to call it so terrified by Trump?

        Whitewall in reply to MarkS. | September 1, 2023 at 8:33 am

        Trump does not fear them.

        Concise in reply to MarkS. | September 1, 2023 at 8:40 am

        Democrat and republican establishment, elite whatever don’t just oppose his policies. They don’t want an engaged population choosing leaders to serve the national interests of the people. They want to do the choosing. Just my view.

          Whitewall in reply to Concise. | September 1, 2023 at 9:18 am

          People in power want to stay that way. This ‘woke’ circus and trans agitprop can backfire on our rulers in a way that causes the vast majority to ‘awaken’ to what’s being done to us. If so, the ruling class manipulations can be swept away quickly. Politicians fear popular mass movements..

          Jefferson said it best

        Trump will not bow the knee to these people
        they can’t bribe him they can’t hurt him
        and both they and he knows this

      gonzotx in reply to Concise. | September 1, 2023 at 11:55 am


    I think you underestimate the ability of the Progressive media to turn it into a circus worthy of the caesars, with the crowd enthusiastically giving thumbs down. Battle of the media titans, for sure.

      CommoChief in reply to GWB. | September 1, 2023 at 9:30 am

      Not at all. I wasn’t referring to the lapdog legacy media and their ideological ‘experts’ they bring on to continue to spin the approved narrative.

      I am referring to the many different legal analysis pod casts and blogs in new media which goes direct to the pubic on YouTube or Rumble. The same folks who geared up for the Rittenhouse trial. Don’t forget there will also be coverage via the thousands of reaction channels on the same platforms.

      The legacy lapdog media is quickly being surpassed by new media. See TC as one example of the reach. There are plenty of content creators on these platforms with 1/2 million + subscribers and they routinely generate a view count in the tens of millions. Don’t underestimate how big a change this is and how much it undercuts the power of legacy media to control the narrative. This isn’t the era of Walter Cronkite assuring the public ‘that’s the way it is’, nor the even the era of cable TV news exclusively controlling information flow, those days are behind us.

        Sadly, there’s still a lot of people living in the “Cronkite Era”. They only watch the legacy media and will happily nod along like those little dogs you put on your car dash.
        I certainly hope there are enough of the folks you mention to make a difference. But some large number will simply be cemented in their positions about Orange Man Bad.

          Whitewall in reply to GWB. | September 1, 2023 at 10:59 am

          So true. These seniors are also made up of FDR Democrats who believe that as long as Ds are in charge then they as voters have done their civic duty. Anything contrary to the nightly news is just nonsense and to tell them what their votes are enabling is just too far beyond their understanding. The destruction brought about by their beloved Ds isn’t really happening and those tranny freak shows and gender fluid stories are right wing paranoia. As long as they are comfortable Dems and not forced to see their own kind for what they are then all is well. Make them see otherwise and they will resent you forever even if you are family or friend..

          CommoChief in reply to GWB. | September 1, 2023 at 11:52 am

          No doubt, Biden’s most enduring support by any demographic group is those 65+. While they went for Biden at about 48% their level of support in polling since has remained close to that level at an average of about 44%. This is in stark contrast to other demographic groups who’s support has fallen off from Nov ’20 across other age cohorts and ‘racial’ groups. The 65+ group and college educated females are the most consistent Biden supporters.

    JohnSmith100 in reply to CommoChief. | September 1, 2023 at 7:34 pm

    Dem faithful will never see it, or be smart enough to understand.

      CommoChief in reply to JohnSmith100. | September 2, 2023 at 12:12 pm

      The d/prog ‘faithful’ ain’t the group we should be worry about for the very reason you suggest; they will refuse to take off their ideological blinders. It’s the middle of the road voters we should be courting. The d/prog zealots and kool aid drinkers are a lost cause.

      The independent voters and those who lean d or are the d/prog equivalent of squishy is the target to reach. IOW those with a less than completely closed mind who are willing to hear and evaluate the facts for themselves v always adopting the narrative and talking points whatever d/prog media pied piper they prefer is selling.

idnt Fani’s straighten hair “cultural appropriation” ??

and live shots of Fani’s enormous fanny ,yeah boy

oooh, Black Fanny bam-ba-lam

Trump is probably chuckling right now, “Those idiots are actually gonna give me a billion dollars worth of free campaign publicity! Ha! What a bunch of maroons!”

Yeah, that choice is going to work out sooooo well…. Hoo boy.

“My initial reaction is that this is a good thing all around. We will not have to rely on media filters as to the evidence.”

Not only that, but it will allow everyone to see media distortion attempts in action. Having a running narrative about how X scored a point will be immediately explained as attempts to gaslight the public. Who knows? Might be the day that the little boy says that the emperor is naked.

    thad_the_man in reply to coyote. | September 1, 2023 at 3:59 pm

    Plus it will not allow the standard channels to control the narrative. I remember Nick Rekieta having to fight LAw and Crtime network aka “Law and Cucks” over Depp vs Heard.

    Really hope Nick does this trial, not pnly for his opinion, but for all the visiting lawyers.

      The Packetman in reply to thad_the_man. | September 1, 2023 at 4:05 pm

      He noted on his stream last night that if the trial is televised he would absolutely have to cover it.

      I wonder if EDB will shill for Big Fani!

This is what the legacy media and Trumo want-Trump on the air for free all the time but remember-all the time and money spent on replayiong 2020 means less time and money spent on defeating Biden

    Magic 8-ball says “True.”

    Save America, the leadership PAC founded by former President Donald Trump, has less than $4 million cash on hand, after siphoning over $101 million to pay legal fees for Trump and his allies since the beginning of 2022, reports the New York Times.

    Mid-year tax filings for PACs provide awareness about presidential campaign funding and how those funds are being used. In Save America’s case, money that could be going to necessary campaign needs or political work, is being spent overwhelmingly on the former president’s and his associates’ pending legal cases.

    According to its mid-year Federal Election Commission (FEC) filing, the Save America PAC has spent approximately $25 million in the first half of 2023, $21.6 million of that went to legal fees. —

And Brian Kemp standing by Willis, political hack masquerading as legal professional, just ended his political career by refusing to call special session to sanction this woman’s political hackery in the DA office. He will have as bright a future in politics as Mike Pence. Looks like “no labels party” is growing.

    Kemp is a co-conspirator in the effort to rig the election

      gonzotx in reply to MarkS. | September 1, 2023 at 11:47 am

      And he was paid VERY well

        CommoChief in reply to gonzotx. | September 1, 2023 at 11:59 am

        Couldn’t it be based on simple mutual dislike and animosity between Kemp and Trump? Clearly these two men do not have affinity or much respect for each other. Simple personal hatred/jealousy or whatever other emotion seems an easier reason than a conspiracy.

          starride in reply to CommoChief. | September 1, 2023 at 3:17 pm

          Kemp is a NWO bushie I have a photo of him posing with Boehner at the sea island stop Trump summit from May of 2023

          CommoChief in reply to CommoChief. | September 1, 2023 at 6:18 pm

          Ok. I don’t doubt it. Wouldn’t the simplest explanation still be that Kemp despises Trump? If so then Kemp lending support to the ‘stop Trump summit’ is not exactly exciting news. Same for Boehner who also pretty clearly despises Trump.

          Both those guys very openly don’t like Trump and haven’t made a secret of it. so them taking action to try and thwart Trump’s further political ambitions would be in character for them.

      REDACTED in reply to MarkS. | September 1, 2023 at 2:20 pm

      Kemp is part of the GOPe wing of the dim party

    Milhouse in reply to peakcat76. | September 2, 2023 at 11:26 am

    WT actual F are you talking about? There was no petition signed by 3/5 of each house, so there was no occasion for a special session. There will never be such a petition, even if every single Republican were to sign one, because they don’t have 3/5 of each house.

I’m surprised they’re not going the Pay-Per-View route.

    thad_the_man in reply to UJ. | September 1, 2023 at 4:02 pm

    Yes, considering the cost of getting court documents. I understand copying costs, but why not post everything on their websites for free?

Fat_Freddys_Cat | September 1, 2023 at 12:07 pm

Heh. I suspect if it isn’t turning out the way they want (e.g. Trump is scoring points against them) the live feed will suddenly experience “technical difficulties”.

I am not a fan of having video in courthouses. Witness testimony can be warped if they recognize that they are on TV. I think Rush commented on this several times.

However, given that this Fani gal who is clearly being directed by others as she is too incompetent to be directing herself, and the nature of the charges, RICO for God’s sake, it will be welcome to see her and her prosecuting ADA be humiliated on live TV.

If Fani Willis is so confident in the validity of her charges and considering that the case is of significant national importance, she should declare that she will be the first chair prosecuting attorney herself. Then we will see how utterly corrupt and incompetent she is.


I know I’m late to the party, but let me add that “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised”.

Can’t have a Show Trial without a show.

A Show Trial needs a show and if Miss So Important thinks she is going to get the best of Trump in front of a camera she is in for a rough ride.
The longer this political show trial goes on the more voters will think ” that could be me if I cross The Cathedral”

Trump’s trial gets moved to federal court. No cameras.

Well, well, seems Ms. Lawfare Judge’s handlers got herself all spiffed up like a shiny penny for her tv debut and clown show.

Can these people get anymore asininely transparent?
