Watch live: Judge convenes hearing on requests in Georgia elections case 

The judge overseeing the Georgia election interference case against former President Trump and 18 other defendants is set to hold a hearing Thursday morning to consider a batch of requests.

Judge Scott McAffee is slated to consider motions in which lawyers for Trump-aligned attorneys Kenneth Chesebro and Sidney Powell are seeking to scrutinize evidence gathered against them by Georgia prosecutors.

Chesebro and Powell, who are set to go to trial next month, are asking to speak to the grand jurors who indicted them for allegations of interfering in the 2020 election to keep Trump in power. They are also seeking to unveil the identities of 30 unindicted co-conspirators listed in charging documents. 

The judge on Thursday will also consider a motion by Chesebro to unseal transcripts of the special purpose grand jury proceedings. Powell did not join in that motion.

The hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. ET.
