Trump trials takeaways: Why prosecutors focused on alleged conspiracy


We’ve been getting a lot of questions in our inboxes about the New York trial. We’ll try to answer as many as we can.

Q. Why is Trump allowed to address reporters and cameras while he is still in the courthouse?

A. Manhattan criminal court allows defendants and lawyers to talk to reporters. Because of the heightened security concerns and media in Trump’s trial, a part of the hallway has been blocked off for Trump to do so — and he is, every day. There are microphones and cameras set up, with a small rotating pool of reporters assigned to keep the hallways from getting clogged with too many media members.

Laws on cameras in courtrooms vary from state to state, but federal courts are very strict: no cameras, period. That means that the Trump case in D.C., where he faces charges for election interference, and Florida, where he is charged with illegally retaining classified materials and obstructing government efforts to retrieve them, will have no televised hallway statements by the defendant. But in Georgia, where he is charged with conspiring to obstruct the 2020 election results in that state, the whole trial is broadcast live.
