Trump has turned himself in to court in Georgia

The process took about 30 minutes, and the 77-year-old Trump was a suspect on 13 counts, documents released by local police show. He was also forced to take a selfie (the so-called mug photo), something Trump was not required to do in previous court hearings.

Outside the Fulton County Jail, dozens of supporters of the former president gathered to show their support for his arrival. Dissidents were also present, but the two groups were much smaller than the media mob that also gathered at the heavily guarded entrance.

Paid guarantee

After Trump posted a bail amount equivalent to about 2.2 million crowns, he was taken back to the airport, where he hopped on his plane back to his home in New Jersey. While on the plane, Trump commented on the indictment, which he called a “parody of justice,” and also insisted he “did nothing wrong.”

– If you object to the outcome of the election, you should have the opportunity to do so, he told reporters just before joining.

suspected of extortion

The indictment – one of four major cases in which Trump is suspected of crimes – relates to allegations that he may have tried to influence the state’s 2020 election results, including through extortion.

It also has to do with the fact that Trump and his allies regarding the election spread false rumors about election fraud and urged officials and politicians to nullify Biden’s victory.

He is also suspected of planning to send bogus electors, the people who officially vote for the winner of a state election, to Atlanta.

Donald Trump was indicted in early August for attempting to overturn the results of the presidential election.

The investigation is being led by Special Counsel Jack Smith, who has suggested the trial begin January 2.

Mar-a-Lago, Florida

Trump was indicted last June on 37 counts primarily related to the former president’s handling of classified and sensitive government documents that were stored at his residence in Mar-a-Lago, Florida, after his time in the White House. This investigation is also federal and is being led by Jack Smith. The trial is scheduled for May next year, just six months before the presidential election in which Trump wants to run.

Accounting Crimes in New York

The indictment, which was filed in March, includes 34 counts against Donald Trump, who is accused of, among other things, ordering payments to people who threatened to release sensitive information about him in connection with the 2016 presidential campaign. The trial in the state case is scheduled for March 2024. .

The indictment covers 19 people, including Donald Trump, and relates to attempts to overturn the election results in Georgia through, among other things, spreading rumors and bogus voters.
