Federal courts dealt Adam Schiff one massive setback that will drive him crazy

Sep 14, 2023

Congressman Adam Schiff is not used to hearing the word “no.”

But Schiff just lost big time.

And that’s because federal courts dealt Adam Schiff one massive setback that will drive him crazy.

The Judicial Conference’s rules governing criminal trials do not allow cameras in the courtroom.

Adam Schiff tried to strongarm the body into televising Donald Trump’s trials in the January 6 and Mar-a-Lago document case witch hunts.

Schiff and 36 other Democrats wrote a letter to Judicial Conference Secretary U.S. District Judge Roslynn Mauskopf, demanding the organization change its rules and televise Trump’s trials.

“Given the historic nature of the charges brought forth in these cases, it is hard to imagine a more powerful circumstance for televised proceedings,” Schiff’s letter read. “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 Judicial Conference rejected Schiff’s demand.

Its updated rules allow for live streaming of civil and bankruptcy cases.

“The Judicial Conference of the United States on Tuesday approved a change to its broadcast policy that expands the public’s access to civil and bankruptcy proceedings over the Judiciary’s longstanding pre-COVID policy, which prohibited all remote public access to federal court proceedings,” the new rules read.

But the Judicial Conference explicitly stated that it would still ban cameras in the courtroom for criminal trials.

“The change approved Tuesday does not extend to criminal proceedings. Temporary permission to conduct some criminal proceedings by videoconference or teleconference, which had been granted under the 2020 CARES Act, ended on May 10, 2023. Courts have already discontinued use of virtual criminal proceedings, except as otherwise authorized. The revision also does not affect a judge’s ability to allow parties and counsel to appear remotely by teleconference and videoconference,” the updated rules stated.

Democrats want cameras in the courtroom for one reason and one reason only.

That’s because Democrats staged these trials against Trump as the centerpiece of their 2024 election strategy.

The median U.S. income fell by 2.3 percent in 2022.

Taking taxes and subsidies into account, the drop in U.S. household income was an even more alarming 8.8 percent.

Democrats know Joe Biden can’t win an election by running on that record.

So Adam Schiff and others want cameras in the courtroom for Trump’s trials to make a spectacle and allow the media to focus on Trump and ignore Joe Biden’s failures.
