Georgia Indictment: Trump To Turn Himself In Thursday, Touts Perfect Phone Call

Daily Report August 22,2023

Former President Donald Trump is set to turn himself in on Thursday at the Fulton County jail in Georgia following his latest indictment.

Trump, who was charged with 18 other co-defendants, will turn himself in and would be released on a bond set for $200,000.

According to Breitbart News, Trump’s bond conditions — which are stricter than some of his other codefendants’— provide that the former president must not take actions that intimidate other co-defendants or witnesses in the case or obstruct the administration of justice.

Trump’s bond order also prohibits him from discussing the case with any of his co-defendants or the 30 unindicted co-conspirators, except through legal counsel.

Trump, who faces up to 76 years in prison if found guilty, reacted to the news on his Truth Social account, labeling the indictment a witch hunt. The former president added that he was not being arrested for murder but instead for a “perfect phone call.”

“Can you believe it? I’ll be going to Atlanta, Georgia, on Thursday to be ARRESTED by a Radical Left District Attorney, Fani Willis, who is overseeing one of the greatest Murder and Violent Crime DISASTERS in American History,” Trump wrote. “In my case, the trip to Atlanta is not for ‘Murder,’ but for making a PERFECT PHONE CALL! She campaigned and is continuing to campaign, and raise money on, this WITCH HUNT. This is in strict coordination with Crooked Joe Biden’s DOJ. It is all about ELECTION INTERFERENCE!”

The Georgia indictment is the fourth the former president has faced since leaving office in 2021. Trump’s first indictment came out of New York when Manhattan District Attorney Alving Bragg secured an indictment of the former president for allegedly falsifying business records and campaign finance violations.

Special Counsel Jack Smith indicted the former president over the Mar-a-Lago classified document case. Smith also indicted Trump for allegedly lying about the 2020 presidential election result.

Trump, who described all of the indictments as election interference, has vowed not to bow out of the 2024 presidential race.
