The proceedings will be accessible to the public through the Fulton County Court's YouTube channel, according to Judge Scott McAfee.

Typically, Fulton County's court hearings are livestreamed, but this trial will stand out as it involves one of Trump's four ongoing legal cases and could become one of the most-watched trials in recent history. While no trial date has been set, it could potentially take place next year, coinciding with Mr. Trump's re-election campaign.

Donald Trump, along with 18 others, faces charges of conspiring to overturn the results of Georgia's 2020 presidential election. He is also confronted with three other criminal trials. Prosecutors allege that he exerted pressure on Georgia officials to reverse the election results in the state, which were won by Democrat Joe Biden.

At the heart of the prosecution's case is a phone call made by Trump to the state's secretary of state, urging a "recalculation" of the vote tally. Trump was taken into custody last week at Fulton County Jail and had his mugshot captured.

He has chosen to waive his right to appear at his arraignment, scheduled for the following Wednesday, during which the plea is officially entered in court.
