As of last Tuesday night, the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office made public booking images of the initial two defendants to turn themselves in on charges of allegedly plotting to change the results of Georgia’s 2020 election.
Reports show John Eastman, an attorney for Trump’s campaign, and Scott Hall, an Atlanta bondsman, were arrested and booked at the Fulton County Jail and later released.
Eastman told reporters outside the prison following his release that he’s convinced that when the law is honestly implemented in this procedure, he and all of his codefendants will be totally vindicated.
Although Eastman has not spoken with Trump recently, he maintains that he does not regret having represented the president. In response to whether or not he still held the view that the 2020 election was stolen, Eastman said there was no doubt in his mind it was.
In an alleged attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 elections, Trump and 18 others were indicted on 41 counts by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis on August 14. Indictees had until Friday at noon, under Willis’s order, to appear.
According to Fulton County Sheriff Patrick Labat, Trump and his co-offenders would be given the same treatment as any other accused of crime in the county.
Trump’s bail was the highest of all his co-defendants at $200,000.
Trump’s campaign has brought in $7.1 million in donations since the former president turned himself in at the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office last Thursday.
Trump’s first mugshot from any of the four pending criminal matters was taken in Fulton County.
Reports show that Trump posted his mugshot and a URL encouraging fans to give to his campaign upon returning to Twitter (now X) after being banned almost two years ago.
Even after Trump’s indictment by special counsel Jack Smith for his alleged participation in the January 6 Capitol Rrots, the Trump campaign has raised over $20 million in the previous three weeks. A campaign adviser for Trump told the media that the campaign was close to reaching $20 million again.
