Trump says he will surrender at an Atlanta jail Thursday in Georgia election interference case
Former President Donald Trump said Monday night that he would turn himself in Thursday in Fulton County, Georgia, after he was indicted on sprawling charges stemming from his efforts to hold onto office in the wake of the 2020 election.
“Can you believe it? I’ll be going to Atlanta, Georgia, on Thursday to be ARRESTED by a Radical Left District Attorney, Fani Willis,” Trump wrote on his social media platform, Truth Social.
Willis, who launched the investigation into Trump and his allies, has given the defendants until noon Friday to surrender voluntarily.
Willis last week hit Trump and 18 other people with racketeering charges, accusing them of scheming to overturn the results of the 2020 election and told them to surrender voluntarily at the Rice Street Jail.
First defendant surrenders at Fulton County Jail
Scott Hall, a Georgia bail bondsman who was charged in connection with the Coffee County election data breach, has been booked into the Fulton County Jail, according to jail records.
Hall was among the 19 charged with Trump.
His bond is set at $10,000. He was one of five co-defendants whose consent bond agreement was made public yesterday.
As of this morning, he is listed as an active inmate and his status shows as “detained.”
