Via press release from Rep. Adam Schiff:
Today, Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), joined by Representatives Gerry Connolly (D-Va.), Hank Johnson (D-Ga.), and Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), called on the Judicial Conference to authorize the live broadcasting of court proceedings in the case of the United States of America v. Donald J. Trump.
The current policy of the Judicial Conference permits judges to authorize broadcasting, televising, recording, or photographing for certain criminal proceedings.
“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.

House Democrats are urging the administrators of the federal judiciary to allow the Trump cases to be televised.
