“The Defendant’s actions demonstrate that he poses a significant threat of intimidating witnesses and otherwise obstructing the administration of justice in the future, making him ineligible for bond,” prosecutors wrote in the court filing, the Washington Examiner reported.
"Willis said Floyd 'engaged in numerous intentional and flagrant violations' of his bond agreement, pointing to a comment he made on a conservative podcast and social media posts that tag Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger," it added.

"The charges against Floyd stem from allegations of harassment of Ruby Freeman, a Fulton County election worker who had been falsely accused of election fraud by Trump and his supporters," the Associated Press reported.
"Floyd took part in a Jan. 4, 2021, conversation in which Freeman was told she 'needed protection' and was pressured to make false statements about election fraud, the indictment says," it noted.
