President Trump’s legal team has filed a request for his federal election interference trial in Washington to be televised, countering the Justice Department’s opposition to the idea. They argue that the American public should have the opportunity to witness the proceedings firsthand and understand that this trial, like others, is an unconstitutional farce.
Trump’s lawyers assert that he has the right to present his case to the public, including his duty as President to investigate and address election irregularities. They urge the court to grant their motion and allow the trial to be broadcasted, ensuring transparency and exposing what they believe to be wrongful acts by the Biden Administration.
However, the Justice Department maintains that federal court rules prohibit televised proceedings and is opposing the request.
A statement from Trump’s Lawyers:
“For the first time in American history, an incumbent administration has charged its main, leading electoral opponent with a criminal offense. Aware that its charges are meritless, the prosecution has sought to proceed in secret, forcing the nation and the world to rely on biased, secondhand accounts coming from the Biden Administration and its media allies.
“As a result, the citizens of our great country are unable to review for themselves what the facts of this case show, and how unfairly President Trump is being treated at the hands of his political opponent. As President Trump has made clear from the outset, the prosecution has repeatedly denied him his fundamental constitutional rights, including the right to prepare for trial and to present a fulsome defense.
“The prosecution wishes to continue this travesty in darkness. President Trump calls for sunlight. Every person in America, and beyond, should have the opportunity to study this case firsthand and watch as, if there is a trial, President Trump exonerates himself of these baseless and politically motivated charges. The Court should grant the Motions without delay.”
Various news organizations, including the Associated Press, have contended that no federal case in history justifies an exception to the rule more than when a former president is being tried for allegations of attempting to undermine the voters’ will in an election.
Rejecting the ongoing efforts of the Biden Department of Justice, Trump’s legal team argued against denying his chief political rival his constitutional rights to due process. They asserted that such actions would only deepen the public’s lack of trust in the American justice system, perceiving it as a tool wielded exclusively by a privileged few.
The lawyers representing Trump argued that the judicial proceeding lacked due process and was biased against their client in an attempt to defeat him politically. They believed that televising the proceedings would expose the Biden Administration’s unlawful and unconstitutional actions.
Their well-documented corruption is something the Bidens have gone through great pains to cover up.

The lawyers claimed that Trump’s constitutional rights had been denied and that the prosecutors and court should have ensured fairness and due process. However, they felt that the court had allowed attacks on Trump’s constitutional rights to continue, prioritizing the interests of his political opposition over the protections that American patriots have fought for.
Trump was indicted on felony charges related to the 2020 election, and the trial date was set for early March, which coincides with the 2024 Republican presidential primary cycle. The federal judge in the separate classified documents prosecution of Trump pushed back multiple deadlines, making it unlikely that the case will proceed to trial in May as planned.
