Trump Ally Released from Georgia Jail After Initially Being Held Without Bond

Published on

The only person incarcerated as a result of the comprehensive indictment related to efforts to overturn then-President Donald Trump’s 2020 election loss in Georgia was granted bond Tuesday and released from jail Wednesday.

Tuesday, an attorney for Harrison William Prescott Floyd negotiated with the office of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis a $100,000 bond.

Floyd was indicted alongside Trump and seventeen others for unlawfully conspiring to overturn the results of the 2020 election in the state.

Before their clients turned themselves in at the Fulton County Jail by Friday’s deadline, attorneys for Trump and the other defendants had all negotiated bail. Floyd handed himself in on Thursday without a bond and was therefore required to remain in prison. During a hearing on Friday, a judge denied him bond and referred the issue to the judge designated to the case.

Floyd is accused of violating Georgia’s anti-racketeering statute, conspiring to make fraudulent statements, and improperly influencing a witness. The allegations derive from alleged harassment of Ruby Freeman, an election worker in Fulton County whom Trump had accused of election fraud. According to the indictment, Floyd participated in a conversation on January 4, 2020, in which Freeman was told she “needed protection” and pressured to make fraudulent statements about election fraud.

In addition to the Georgia charges, Floyd, a former U.S. Marine who is active with the organization Black Voices for Trump, was arrested in Maryland three months ago on a federal warrant accusing him of aggressively confronting two FBI agents sent to serve him with a grand jury subpoena.

According to an affidavit filed in U.S. District Court, Floyd shouted, cursed, stabbed a finger in the face of an FBI agent, and chest-bumped the agent twice in a stairwell. It was stated that Floyd only retreated when the second agent uncovered his suit coat to disclose his concealed firearm.
