Trump’s Georgia trial to be televised and live-streamed as he moves to ditch co-defendants – live

Donald Trump’s Georgia trial over his efforts to overturn the result of the 2020 election will be filmed and live-streamed, the judge overseeing the case has said.

It is the first of the former president’s four criminal cases in which a judge has said they will allow cameras.

Earlier Mr Trump pleaded not guilty to the charges levelled against him in the Georgia election interference case and waived his right to an arraignment, currently scheduled for 6 September in Fulton County.

Shortly after filing the plea, Mr Trump’s lawyers also moved to sever his case from any co-defendants who opted for a speedy trial.

Meanwhile, the former president made a chilling threat to “lock up” his political rivals if he wins the 2024 presidential race.

In an interview with conservative media personality Glenn Beck, Mr Trump was reminded about his 2016 campaign statement that he would “lock up” Hillary Clinton – but then decided against it when he entered the White House.

This time round, Mr Trump said he would have “no choice” but to follow through with his threats.
