Trump To Be Booked In Fulton County, Georgia Thursday

Former President Donald Trump announced this week that he would be booked in Fulton County, Georgia this Thursday, one day before the court-ordered deadline. Trump’s statement will likely also cast a shadow over Wednesday’s first GOP primary debate in Milwaukee Wednesday, which Trump announced he would not take part in.

The former president wrote on social media that he would be going to Atlanta Thursday “to be ARRESTED by a Radical Left District Attorney.” Trump said that Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis (D) was “overseeing one of the greatest Murder and Violent Crime DISASTERS in American History.”

“In my case, the trip to Atlanta is not for “Murder,” but for making a PERFECT PHONE CALL!” the former president wrote on Truth Social. Trump further argued that Willis campaigned on what he called a “WITCH HUNT.”

“This is in strict coordination with Crooked Joe Biden’s DOJ,” he wrote. “It is all about ELECTION INTERFERENCE!”

The Fulton County Superior Court set a bond of $200,000 for the defendant. Following the booking, Trump will face both his arraignment and first court appearance next month.

The court also stated that Trump “shall perform no act to intimidate any person known to him or her to be a codefendant or witness in this case or to otherwise obstruct the administration of justice,” which would include “posts on social media or reposts of posts made by another individual on social media.”

Trump made the comments in the context of the upcoming court case. Willis’ office is pursuing 13 charges against the former president in relation to the aftermath of the 2020 election. He is being charged with violating the state’s RICO statutes.

The district attorney’s office is also charging the former president with three counts of criminal solicitation, six counts of criminal conspiracy, allegedly filing false documents and two counts of making false statements.

In addition, 18 other figures associated with Trump are also facing charges and must appear in court by Friday.
