Trump Predicts His Arrest in Georgia Election Case on Thursday

 

 

 

 

 

Donald Trump has announced his intention to surrender to a Georgia court on Thursday to face charges of election interference.

The judge overseeing the case has set bail at $200,000, allowing Trump to remain free pending trial under the condition that he does not threaten or intimidate witnesses.

 

Trump denies 13 charges, including racketeering and false statements. A court filing posted on Monday stipulates that he must not engage in acts that could intimidate co-defendants or witnesses, including social media posts.

 

The court order, signed by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and Trump’s lawyers, states that Trump commented on his impending arrest on his social media platform, Truth Social, expressing disbelief and attributing the case to a “WITCH HUNT” orchestrated by the District Attorney and Joe Biden’s Department of Justice.

 

He also humorously questioned whether he could fly his ostentatious airplane to Atlanta.

Willis has requested the judge to schedule arraignments for September 5 and proposed a trial start date in March.

Trump’s lawyers were observed at the Fulton County court in negotiations over bail terms.

Upon Trump’s surrender, there will be heightened security measures, including a “hard lockdown” of the jail area. Barricades have been set up outside the court in anticipation of his surrender. He was charged alongside others for attempting to interfere with Georgia’s election results after his 2020 loss to Joe Biden.

 

Trump’s recorded interview with Tucker Carlson will replace his participation in the first Republican televised debate, as he leads the GOP’s race for the 2024 presidential election nomination.
