Judge considers revoking a Trump co-defendant’s bond in Georgia case

An Atlanta judge will hear arguments to revoke the bond of Harrison Floyd, one of the defendants in the Georgia election subversion case.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis filed the motion to revoke Floyd’s bond last week, writing that he had taken to social media to “intimidate codefendants and witnesses, to communicate directly and indirectly with codefendants and witnesses, and to otherwise obstruct the administration of justice.” Prosecutors argued this was a “flagrant violation” of Floyd’s bond conditions.

Floyd’s charges in the case surround allegations of harassment toward Ruby Freeman, a Fulton County election worker falsely accused of election fraud by Donald Trump and his supporters. He previously spent a week in Fulton County Jail, as his lawyer did not reach a bond agreement by the time of his indictment.

The conditions of the agreement stipulate that Floyd cannot communicate, directly or indirectly, about the case with known witnesses or co-defendants.

Willis’ motion cites multiple posts Floyd made to X, the website formerly known as Twitter, targeting Freeman, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperge and co-defendant Jenna Ellis, the latter of whom pleaded guilty last month.

However, Floyd’s lawyers argue that, while Trump’s bond agreement makes explicit mention of social media, Floyd’s does not. “A review of President Trump’s social media posts make the decision to go after Harrison Floyd hard to justify,” they argued, referring to social media posts by the former president mentioning co-defendants Sidney Powell and Mark Meadows.

Floyd is separately charged with simple assault of a federal officer who delivered a subpoena to him to testify before a grand jury in Washington D.C.
