Judge overseeing Trump's Georgia trial decides in favor of live streaming and televising trial

Judge Scott McAfee, the judge overseeing the case against former President Donald Trump and his allies for alleged election interference, has decided to allow live streaming and televising of the trial.

McAfee revealed that all proceedings in the trial will be posted to the Fulton County Court YouTube channel while broadcast news media will also be allowed full coverage of the trial.

Trump, alongside his 18 co-defendants, are facing racketeering charges in District Attorney Fani Willis's bombshell indictment.

Now they will have the advantage of full media coverage that will expose Willis's political indictment.

Pivotal trial

The decision to make this trial so accessible and open to the public will make this trial pivotal for next year's presidential election.

Trump is facing multiple indictments but it seems this one will be the only one that will be open to the public.

Trump is being indicted for allegedly mishandling of classified information and another indictment also accusing him of election interference.

Due to federal court's usually not allowing cameras, those indictments won't be nearly as accessible to the general public.

The next major event in Trump's Georgia case is arraignment on September 6th, which the public will be able to tune in on.

However, Trump has already announced that he will not appear for arraignment so there will be little reason for Americans to watch that.

Extensive timeline

Beyond the arraignment scheduled for Wednesday, the trial's time line is up in the air. Willis's team wanted the trial to begin on March 4th but due to Trump's other indictments, that date won't work and the trial must be pushed back.

Willis also pushed for a late October trial but it is beginning to look like that time frame won't work either and Trump's trial could be delayed extensively.

There is a growing concern that the indictments against Trump will stretch into next year's presidential election and affect the outcome of the election regardless of whether Trump is found guilty or declared innocent.

If these trials can't be wrapped up in a timely fashion, Democrats could interfere in the election by leveling bogus claims against Trump.
