Fulton County Sets Trump's Bond At $200K

The Former President's Legal Team Has Reportedly Accepted The Bond

Fulton County, Georgia has set former President Donald Trump’s bond at $200,000 following his indictment in the state last week.

The former president has received a bond amount of $80,000 for allegedly violating Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), along with $60,000 for six counts worth of Criminal Conspiracy, and another $30,000 bond for Criminal Solicitation. Trump is also granted another $10,000 bond on Filing False Documents, and another $20,000 for False Statements.

Trump may post bond as cash, through commercial surety, or through Fulton County Jail’s 10% program, per the Monday bail posting.

“The Defendant shall not violate the laws of this State, the laws of any other state, the laws of the United States of America, or any other local laws,” per the consent bond order.

“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,” reads Trump’s bail posting noting the former president must appear in court.

The bail posting further states the former President “shall make no direct or indirect threat of any nature against any codefendant [or] any witness including, but not limited to, the individuals designated in the Indictment as an unindicated co-conspirators Individual 1 through Individual 30.”

Trump may also not make a direct or indirect threat of any nature against any victim, the community or to any property in the community. The document extends potential direct or indirect threats to Trump’s personal social media posts, or reposts of another individual’s post on social media.

“The Defendant shall not communicate in any way, directly or indirectly, about the facts of this case with any person known to him to be a codefendant in this case except through his or her counsel,” the document concludes.

On Monday afternoon, Trump’s legal team, consisting of Todd Blanche, Jennifer Little, and Drew Findling, accepted Fulton County’s $200,000 bond.

Proposed arraignment for defendants will take place the week of Sept. 5, according to the filing. Final pretrial conference shall be held on Feb. 20, 2024 and the trial shall commence on March 4, 2024.

Defendants have been given the opportunity to voluntarily surrender no later than noon on Aug. 25, said Fulton County, Georgia district attorney Fani Willis. All 19 defendants will be tried together.

Every individual is charged with one count of violating the RICO Act in Fulton County and elsewhere “to accomplish the illegal goal of allowing Donald J Trump to seize the presidential term of office, beginning on January, 2021,” said Willis during a Monday night press conference following the indictment.
