Adam Schiff wants Trump’s federal trials telecast live.
“Given the historic nature of the charges brought forth in these cases, it is hard to imagine a more powerful circumstance for televised proceedings. If the public is to fully accept the outcome, it will be vitally important for it to witness, as directly as possible, how the trials are conducted, the strength of the evidence adduced and the credibility of witnesses,” the lawmakers wrote.
Really? You us to witness the bias, prosecutorial misconduct, withheld evidence, and jury shennanigans that are virtually inevitable in the DC trial. You don’t think seeing that live might piss off one or two million people, and eliminate what little confidence in the fed couts they might still have?
Pencil-neck also makes this claim.
The current policy of the Judicial Conference permits judges to authorize broadcasting, televising, recording, or photographing for certain criminal proceedings.
Again, really? Where are those exceptions to Rule 53?
Rule 53. Courtroom Photographing and Broadcasting Prohibited
Except as otherwise provided by a statute or these rules, the court must not permit the taking of photographs in the courtroom during judicial proceedings or the broadcasting of judicial proceedings from the courtroom.
That’s pretty simple and straightforward. So show me the exceptions. Please, because I’d dearly love to have the DC kangaroo kourt proceedings exposed.
Added: Personally, I think Schiff-head is delusional enough to think broadcasting the DC trial would inspire confidence in the system. But, knowing Schiff, it is possible that he wants the kangaroo court broadcast as a warning to all us wrong-thinkers: Piss us off, and we will railroad your peasant ass, and get away with it. So just shut up, lest you draw our ire. If we can do it to a former president, can sure as fuck do it to you.
