45th President Donald Trump has stated that he plans to turn himself in at the Fulton County, Georgia jail on Thursday.
Taking to Truth Social, Trump said that this indictment and arrest are all a “witch hunt” in “coordination with Crooked Jo Biden’s DOJ.”
On Monday, Trump’s defense team met with the Fulton County District Attorney in order to come to a bond agreement. The agreement that was made will have Trump facing a $200,000 bond.
An order signed by Fulton County Superior Judge Scott McAfee listed the prohibitions that Trump will also be facing after his bond is paid. If he is to break any of the limits that have been placed on him, his bond could be revoked.
“The Defendant 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,” the order read. “The above shall include, but are not limited to, posts on social media or reposts of posts made by another individual on social media.”
The Fulton County case is the first case that the release conditions for Trump have included a cash bond and certain prohibitions. The case is the fourth brought against the 45th president this year, with the other three having release conditions that have been minimal.
Trump is facing 13 charges in Fulton County, including violation of the state’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).
18 other individuals have been charged in the same case in Fulton County, all have been given until noon on Friday to turn themselves in.
Trump has maintained his innocence, and pled not guilty to all the charges that have been levied against him.
