Trump bond in Georgia set at $200,000

August 21, 2023

Former President Trump’s bond in Fulton County, Georgia was set Monday at $200,000 related to his indictment in the 2020 election case in that state. 

According to the filing in Fulton County Superior Court, Trump has been ordered to ordered to submit to witness intimidation restrictions including: 

• The defendant shall make no direct or indirect threat of any nature against any codefendant; 

• The defendant shall make no direct or indirect threat of any nature against any witness including, but not limited to, the individuals designated in the indictment as an unindicted co-conspirators individual one through individual 30; 

• The defendant shall make no direct or indirect threat of any nature against any victim;

• The defendant shall make no direct or indirect threats 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 posts made by another individual on social media.

Trump’s bond agreement was signed by three attorneys for the defendant—Drew Finding, Marissa Golberg and Jennifer Little.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis also signed the agreement. 

Trump is among 19 co-defendants who were indicted by a grand jury last Monday related to attempts to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election. 

All 19 co-defendants, including Trump, are facing charges of violating of Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). Trump is also facing among a total of 13 criminal counts solicitation of violation of oath by public officer, conspiracy to commit impersonating a public officer, conspiracy to commit forgery in the first degree, conspiracy to commit false statements and writings, conspiracy to commit filing false documents, and conspiracy to commit forgery in the first degree.

Though Trump’s bond was set by Judge Scott McAfee, the same Superior Court judge who set $100,000 bond earlier Monday for Trump co-defendant attorney John Eastman, it would appear that the witness intimidation restrictions against Trump are stricter than those levied upon Eastman. 

Trump and the other 18 defendants have been given until Friday at noon to appear at Fulton County Jail for processing.
