(PatriotNewsDaily.com) – Former President Donald Trump’s attorneys are supporting the media organizations’ requests for cameras to be allowed in the federal trials against him next year.
In a Friday filing Trump’s legal team argued that the presence of cameras in the courtroom would help show the American public how unfairly the justice system was being used against Trump. The attorneys added that Trump was pushing for exposure and that he was arguing that each person in the country should be given the opportunity to watch the case and form opinions for themselves. They added that if there is a trial and Trump exonerates himself from the charges, the American people should be given the right to witness it.
Trump has previously denied any wrongdoing and has slammed the charges against him, especially the ones relating to the claims that he had been attempting to overturn the 2020 presidential election result. The Washington federal election interference case is set to be tried in March.
With the filing, Trump’s legal team joins a coalition of media organizations that have been calling for the judge presiding over the case to allow for cameras to be present in the courtroom.
However, prosecutors, including Special Counsel Jack Smith have opposed the efforts and have argued that there are rules both local and federal in place that prohibit the broadcast of the trial.
The election fraud trial is the most important of the five trials that Trump is facing in the next few months. Out of all the cases against him, four are criminal cases.
