Judge refuses to revoke bond of Trump co-defendant in Georgia case

A Georgia judge refused to end the bond of a co-defendant in former President Donald Trump's Georgia election interference case.

Harrison Floyd, a former leader of Black Voices of Trump, lost his effort to have the bond issue changed.

The ruling

“I think the ultimate result of today’s hearing is that it’s very clear to me that this bond needs to be modified,” Fulton County Judge Scott McAfee said, according to the Hill.

"McAfee approved a more detailed bond agreement provided by the state at the end of the hearing, though he said he would be open to modifying it again in the future after prosecutors and Floyd’s counsel have had more time to examine its specifics," the report continued.

The background

"Floyd, along with Trump and 17 other defendants, pleaded not guilty over the summer to all charges in a sweeping racketeering indictment for alleged efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in the state of Georgia," ABC News reported.

"All 19 defendants surrendered for processing and were subsequently released on bond. Defendants Kenneth Chesebro, Sidney Powell, Jena Ellis and Scott Hall subsequently took plea deals in exchange for agreeing to testify against other defendants," it continued.

The impact

"The bond argument serves as a warning about what defendants can say about pending cases," USA Today reported.

"Trump is appealing two gag orders in other trials − a New York civil trial over business fraud and a federal criminal trial over charges of election interference − that he contends infringe on his First Amendment right to criticize the cases while campaigning for president," it noted.

Floyd has continued to speak out over the case on social media, choosing to make the matter more public rather than remain silent over the charges.

The move is in contrast with some other co-defendants who have taken a plea deal in the case.

The case is currently scheduled for March for Trump, with the fate of Floyd and many other co-defendants still to come.
