Will Harrison Floyd’s bond be revoked? Judge sets a hearing date
Harrison Floyd was the only co-defendant in Trump’s Georgia indictment to be jailed.
ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee has set a Nov. 21 hearing to determine if Harrison Floyd’s bond will be revoked as requested by District Attorney Fani Willis.
Willis made the request Wednesday, the latest head-spinning development that has occurred over the last 48 hours related to her historic, sweeping indictment of former President Donald Trump. Floyd must be present at the hearing, according to McAfee’s order.
After Willis filed a motion to revoke Floyd’s bond, Floyd took to social media to condemn her request.
“No one should be afraid of telling the truth, especially in America,” Floyd said on X (formerly known as Twitter.) “I’ve Done Nothing Wrong.”
In another post, Floyd said, “If you really cared about Black Men, 10 wouldn’t have died in 9 months at the Fulton County Jail! You’re revoking my bond WHILE YOUR AT A FUNDRAISER for re-election. Did someone pay you for this?”
Floyd, the only co-defendant in Trump’s indictment to be jailed, had earlier reached a bond agreement of $100,000.
The motion to revoke Floyd’s bond is the latest in a series of head-spinning developments over the last 36 hours regarding Trump’s Georgia indictment.
On Tuesday, a series of leaked videos from four Trump co-defendants appeared to show the nation’s 45th president determined not to leave the White House despite 2020 general election results.
Those leaks led Willis to file an emergency motion late Tuesday afternoon seeking a protective order of some of the evidence in her case.
Willis’ motion came after several national and local media outlets reported on videotaped conversations from Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis, Scott Hall and Kenneth Chesebro, that, according to CNN, were part of the plea deals they arranged with Willis’ office.
Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee granted the order during a Wednesday hearing, a hearing in which Jonathan Miller, an attorney representing another Trump co-defendant, Misty Hampton, admitted to leaking the videos to “one media outlet,” he said.
Floyd, unlike the other 18 Trump co-defendants, did not pre-negotiate a bond before he turned himself, a move that would have allowed him to wait for his day in court on his own recognizance.
Floyd identifies himself a a former U.S. Marine who’s active with the group, “Black Voices for Trump.”
