Trump ‘Demands’ DC Election Trial Be Televised

Former President Donald Trump continues to fight against radical left prosecutors who go after him at the behest of the Biden administration. In light of the former president’s election case in Washington, D.C., he is demanding that the trial, scheduled for March 4, 2023, be televised.

President Joe Biden’s weaponized Department of Justice (DOJ) has ignored such calls from the former president, arguing that federal court rules bar televised proceedings from taking place, as reported by Newsmax.

The former president’s lawyers released a statement denouncing the Biden administration’s prosecution of its leading political opponent while arguing that the DOJ’s case against Trump is merely an “unconstitutional charade” that the American people should be able to see.

“President Trump absolutely agrees, and in fact demands, that these proceedings should be fully televised so that the American public can see firsthand that this case, just like others, is nothing more than a dreamt-up unconstitutional charade that should never be allowed to happen again,” Trump’s lawyers wrote in a recent filing.

“Furthermore, President Trump is entitled to present his positions in this case to the American public, including his sacred obligation as President to investigate and address fraud and other irregularities in the 2020 Presidential Election,” the lawyers added.

“Therefore, the Court should grant the Motions and allow the movants to broadcast the proceedings of this matter in order to ensure that the American public can see the bare truth of this case, witness the Biden Administration’s wrongful acts, and hear all the evidence regarding an election that President Trump believes was rigged and stolen,” they continued.

It’s interesting how the DOJ doesn’t want to televise Trump’s election trial in Washington, D.C. What could go wrong? Well, the former president’s lawyers argued that the reason the case is probably being kept in the darkness is because if the American people were allowed to see the trial against the former president, they’d realize just how political it is.

The lawyers said that a further refusal to televise the election trial would “undermine confidence in the United States justice system while continuing to prejudice President Trump’s rights.”

In August 2022, Trump was indicted by Special Counsel Jack Smith, a leftist prosecutor whose wife worked with former first lady Michelle Obama to produce a documentary. The indictment stems from the then-president’s so-called attempts to “overturn” the 2020 presidential election.

The judge presiding over the former president’s election trial is U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan, an Obama appointee, who has repeatedly denounced the former president and his supporters over the Capitol protests of Jan. 6, 2021.
