Trump’s Bond Set At $200,000 In Georgia Election Interference Case

The order was agreed to by prosecutors and Trump’s attorneys.

Former President Donald Trump’s bond has been set at $200,000 in the Georgia election interference criminal case, it was announced in court filings on Monday.

According to the court filings labeled “consent bond order”, Trump agreed to the bond amount that includes charges such as racketeering, criminal conspiracy, criminal solicitation, filing false documents, and making false statements.

The order was agreed to by prosecutors and Trump’s attorneys while being signed off by Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee. The former president’s bond is subject to the conditions that he “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 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,” the filing says.

Trump was indicted last week along with his lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and his former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows were charged. Other key names include Jeffrey Clark, John Eastman, Sidney Powell, Kenneth Chesebro, Jenna Ellis, Ray Smith, and several others.

“The Defendants, as well as others not named as defendants, unlawfully conspired and endeavored to conduct and participate in a criminal enterprise in Fulton County, Georgia, and elsewhere,” the indictment says.

According to Georgia state law, the racketeering charge would carry a sentence of five to 20 years in prison.

Trump has maintained his innocence in all four indictments and is skipping the first GOP debate this week. He is still expected to turn himself in to police, according to those familiar with the situation.

Eastman, the lawyer charged with allegedly helping to fulfill Trump’s plan to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia agreed to a $100,000 bond in the case.

Eastman “shall report to pre-trial supervision every 30 days,” and “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.”
