Trump co-defendant Harrison Floyd being held in Fulton County jail after judge refuses to set bond

 August 26, 2023

Trump co-defendant Harrison Floyd is being held in the Fulton County jail after Judge Emily Richardson refused to set his bond.

Floyd is one of the 19 individuals, including former President Donald Trump, who is being charged in District Attorney Fani Willis's racketeering case that alleges that Trump and his allies sought to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

The charges against Trump and his allies are absurd and designed to damage Trump's political campaign while intimidating any who would dare follow him.

While many of the defendants were issued a bond and set free, Floyd is being retained.

Risk of further offenses

Judge Richardson is holding Floyd because she believes he is at risk of committing further offenses or fleeing the county.

Richardson told Floyd, "There are grounds for bond to be denied at this point. I’m going to go ahead and find that you are a risk to commit additional felonies and a potential risk to flee the jurisdiction."

Richardson also denied that Floyd was eligible to receive a public defender despite Floyd being unable to afford a lawyer.

Floyd also alleged that he had not been read his Miranda Rights raising further questions about just how tight a ship Willis is running in this indictment of Trump and his allies.

Thankfully, a legal defense fund has stepped in and raised a massive $46,000 to help Floyd fight back against the charges he is facing.

Unfortunately, he will have to wait and see about getting out of jail. The case's presiding Judge, Scott McAfee, will review Floyd's case and make a final determination about his bond.

Intimidation campaign

Willis's indictment swept up everyone it possibly could in order to send a message to those that work alongside Trump will face the full force of the liberal justice system.

Floyd is accused of pressuring an election worker into admitting that they had committed voter fraud. However, with how politicized the Willis indictment has been, it seems more likely that Floyd was merely investigating alongside the rest of Trump's legal team.

Willis is attempting to hold Trump and his people criminally liable for asking questions and doing their due diligence to ensure there was nothing wrong with the 2020 presidential election results.

Every recent presidential election has been questioned and contested, especially Trump's 2016 win which Democrats still claim was stolen.
