Trump bond in Georgia election interference case set at 200K dollars

Washington, Aug 21 (Prensa Latina) Lawyers for former U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday agreed to a .000 bond in the Georgia criminal case charging him with trying to illegally overturn the 2020 presidential election results in the state.

Under the terms of the “consent bond order” filed in court Monday afternoon, Trump agreed to the bond amount on charges that include racketeering, criminal conspiracy, criminal solicitation, filing false documents and making false statements.

The order was signed off on by Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee. The order, which was signed by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and Trump’s attorneys, says 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.”

It also says the “Defendant shall make no direct or indirect threat of any nature against the community or to any property in the community; The above shall include, but are not limited to, posts on social media or reposts of posts made by another individual on social media.”

Other defendants agreed to bond packages with prosecutors Monday as well. As of late Monday afternoon, Trump’s was the only one signed off on by Willis — the others were signed by her deputy. His was also the only one with terms that included not making threats to the community or on social media.

John Eastman, the lawyer charged with helping to orchestrate Trump’s fake elector scheme, agreed to a $100,000 bond in the case on the charges including racketeering, criminal conspiracy and filing false documents.

Eastman devised and promoted a six-step plan for then-Vice President Mike Pence to overturn Joe Biden’s victory while presiding over the Electoral College certification on Jan. 6, 2021.

There is expectation here for the ultimatum given to all defendants in the case – totaling 19 with Trump – because they must turn themselves in no later than Aug. 25 at the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta.
