Hi there,

Our generous Giving Tuesday triple match has been extended, which means your donation to Democracy Now! today will go 3x as far. If you give $10, we'll get $30 to support our independent journalism. Please don’t miss out on this opportunity to triple your impact. Democracy Now! is a free source of independent news for tens of millions of people around the world, but less than 1% of our global audience donates to support our critical reporting. Let’s pick up the percentage! We rely on you for support—not the oil, gas, coal and nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis or the weapons manufacturers when we cover war. I hope you’ll give as much as you can today. Every dollar makes a difference. Thanks so much.

Fulton County Judge Moves to Protect Jurors in Trump Election Interference Case

HeadlineSep 26, 2023

In Georgia, Fulton County Judge Scott McAfee has granted a request by prosecutors to restrict the release of personal information about jurors in the election interference case against former President Trump and 18 co-defendants. District Attorney Fani Willis requested additional protections after members of the grand jury who brought the indictments had their home addresses, phone numbers and other personal information posted online, leading to threats and harassment. Willis and members of her team also received threats.

In Colorado, a judge overseeing a case seeking to bar Donald Trump from the 2024 presidential ballot has issued a protective order barring threats and intimidation. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington argues Trump is disqualified under a clause of the 14th Amendment that prohibits people from holding office if they’ve “engaged in insurrection” against the United States.
