Former US President Donald Trump announced his intention to voluntarily surrender to the judiciary in the state of Georgia, following the indictment against him under the law on participation in a criminal organization. Trump's current situation adds to a growing list of legal entanglements, with charges already filed in New York, Miami, and Washington.
Previous Court Appearances
In recent months, Trump's legal woes have seen him make court appearances in three major cities. Despite these challenges, he has managed to avoid the traditional arrest procedure, which typically involves fingerprinting and mugshots capturing both a full-face and profile view.
However, Georgia seems set on sticking to the rulebook. "It doesn't matter your status. We have a mugshot ready for you," stated Labat, addressing the media. Labat's comment emphasizes the judiciary's intention to treat Trump like any other defendant, noting, "Unless someone tells me differently, we are following our normal practices."
Trump's Response and Impending Arrest
In a signature Trump style, the former president took to his social media platform, Truth Social, expressing his disbelief at the forthcoming arrest. "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.
He further alleged that Willis is conducting a "WITCH HUNT" in collaboration with "crooked Joe Biden's DOJ [Department of Justice]." As the day approaches, residents and visitors can expect heightened security measures in the area.
Once arrested, Trump will be expected to post a bail of 200,000 US dollars to secure his freedom pending trial. Interestingly, amidst this whirlwind, Trump made another surprising revelation. Just a day prior, he confirmed that he would not be participating in the upcoming Republican Party debates for the selection of the party's presidential candidate.
Expressing confidence in his public image, he declared on Truth Social, "The public knows who I am & what a successful Presidency I had. I will therefore not be doing the debates." This latest development promises to keep the former president in the spotlight, ensuring that Trump remains a prominent figure in both political and legal discussions in the coming months.
