This week, former President Trump will surrender himself to authorities at the Fulton County jail in Georgia in connection with charges stemming from a grand jury’s accusation that he attempted to fraudulently overturn the 2020 election.
The former president wrote a post on Truth Social describing how he felt about turning himself in to the authorities.
“Are you kidding me? This week, I’m leaving for Atlanta, Georgia, to be APPREHENDED by Fani Willis, a far-left DA who is in charge of one of the worst homicide and violent crime trials in U.S. history,” Trump wrote.
“In my situation, I’m traveling to Atlanta for a PERFECT PHONE CALL, rather than for ‘Murder,’ as you might expect. She ran for office and is still running for office and raising money for this WITCH HUNT. This is in full agreement with Crooked Joe Biden’s Department of Justice. It’s all about RUNNING THE ELECTION!” he added.
One day following the Republican presidential primary debate on the Fox News channel, an event he has chosen not to participate in, the former president is going to be turning himself in.
The former president’s bail was recently set at $200,000 for his Fulton County case, according to a report from Breitbart News.
“The bond for former President Trump has been set at $200,000 in the case brought by Fani Willis, the DA of Fulton County, against him along with 18 other people.”
“Trump’s rules for getting out of jail are tougher than those of some of his other co-defendants. Each defendant’s bond deal says that he or she ‘shall not do anything to intimidate anyone he or she knows to be a co-defendant or a witness in this matter or to interfere in any other way with the administration of justice.'”
Trump’s terms also say that he can’t make “direct or indirect threats” toward witnesses or other suspects.
“This includes, but isn’t restricted to, postings on social media or simply reposts of messages made by someone else on social media,” the bond order said.
The 41-count indictment, according to Joel Pollak of Breitbart News, “charges former President Trump, his attorneys, as well as his campaign advisers with numerous offenses for a national challenge to the 2020 election.”
Joel Pollak writes that “the indictment was announced this week following a hurried grand jury procedure that took only a single day to evaluate a complex collection of claims implicating 19 defendants, which includes the president, across a variety of states and jurisdictions.”
“The indictment is not really about what happened in Georgia,” he said. “Instead, it is about what the Trump campaign said and did in a number of different states in order to try to cast doubt regarding the controversial presidential election of 2020.”
