On Monday, just three days ahead of Mr. Trump’s planned appearance in a Georgia court, Judge Scott McAfee approved a ‘consent bond order’ outlining the rules by which the former president shall remain free from jail.
The bond agreement states that Mr. Trump is not to threaten co-defendants, witnesses, or people in the community in connection with the pending indictment of conspiracy and racketeering. The bond agreement further prohibits Trump from making threats via social media posts or re-posts of other posted material.
Trump, once upon a time an avid Tweeter, likes to post on his social media platform, Truth Social. On Friday, August 4th, 2023, in a possible revenge-post, Trump posted, IF YOU GO AFTER ME, I’M COMING AFTER YOU!
The bond, which is valued at U$D 200,000.00, must be paid in cash, through a bail bondsman, or via Fulton County Jail 10% program. In order for Trump to seemingly stay out of jail and a free man, he has to pay the bail like any other criminal – which some of them are probably good people, Trump would undoubtedly argue.
