Trump allies surrender in Georgia election case

Trump allies surrender in Georgia election interference case. Former lawyer John Eastman and poll watcher Scott Hall turned themselves in to the county sheriff’s office. The remaining 17 defendants are expected to surrender by Friday.

Trump, a front-runner for the 2024 Republican White House nomination, criticized the prosecutions as politically motivated and falsely claims his 2020 loss was due to fraud.

Eastman, who agreed to a $100,000 bond, stated, “I am here today to surrender to an indictment that should never have been brought.” Hall, a Republican poll watcher, was booked with a $10,000 bond deal and regular pre-trial supervision.

In a 41-count indictment, Trump and 18 others were charged with racketeering for efforts to overturn his loss in Georgia to Biden. The trial is set for March, but the complexity could lead to delays.

Trump’s former chief of staff Mark Meadows sought to move the case to federal court but was denied.

Trump, facing indictments in three other criminal cases, including Washington, D.C., Florida, and New York, is likely to raise similar arguments, causing potential delays in pretrial litigation.
