After turning himself in at Fulton County jail on multiple charges linked to his endeavors to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election outcomes, Donald Trump has left Atlanta. This marks the fourth instance this year when the former president has faced criminal accusations.
Throughout the visit, Trump spent over an hour and a half in Atlanta.
“I want to stress that I am innocent of any wrongdoing,” Trump affirmed to reporters prior to boarding his plane.
Trump portrayed the legal case against him as “an injustice to the legal system.”
Later on Thursday, during an interview with the right-wing network Newsmax, he shared that his time at Fulton County jail had been a “very unpleasant experience.”
Upon reflecting on his booking process, he remarked, “I came in, and the treatment was cordial. It’s all part of the process. I took a mug shot, a term I hadn’t encountered before.”
Records from the jail indicate that on Thursday night, the former president was taken into custody and formally processed at Fulton County jail.
He is designated as inmate No. P01135809.
The records detail Trump’s physical attributes: he stands at 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 215 pounds. His description includes blue eyes and blonde or strawberry hair.
In preparation for his surrender, Trump consented to a $200,000 bond and agreed to other conditions for release, such as refraining from using social media to intimidate co-defendants or witnesses involved in the case.
Thus far, a total of 12 defendants, including Trump, have surrendered. Trump and 10 co-defendants have since been released on bail. The solitary exception is Harrison Floyd, who remains in custody.
The remaining seven co-defendants have until noon Eastern Time on Friday to present themselves.
