President Trump is facing arrest as he is set to turn himself in at the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta, Georgia. This comes in response to a 41-count indictment, including charges of RICO and conspiracy, that was returned by a grand jury last Monday. The indictment names Trump as well as 18 co-conspirators.
Trump is expected to be processed and booked alongside his co-conspirators, with his bond set at $200,000. It is likely that this arrest will result in Trump’s first mugshot being taken.
The timing of Trump’s surrender is significant, as he has scheduled it for Thursday night during cable news primetime. This deliberate decision ensures that the entire world will witness this move against the former President and serves to further boost his polling numbers.
In anticipation of his arrest, Trump is preparing to use his mugshot as a marketing opportunity. Following his previous indictment in New York, he released “Not Guilty” shirts that became wildly popular among his supporters. It is believed that the release of a new line of merchandise featuring his mugshot will be equally successful.
This arrest comes on the heels of a highly publicized interview between Trump and Tucker Carlson. Premiering on Twitter during Fox News’ first GOP presidential debate, the interview quickly gained significant traction. In fact, more people have seen this interview than the number of individuals who voted in the controversial 2020 election, including fraudulent votes.
Trump reacted to the impending arrest on Truth Social, stating that he is preparing for his arrest in Atlanta and condemning the violent crime levels in the city. He continues to maintain that the election was rigged and stolen from him, claiming that he has irrefutable evidence to support these allegations.
In the days leading up to Trump’s arrest, his lawyers and associates were already booked and photographed for their mugshots at the Fulton County jail. In a show of support, Trump’s loyal followers have gathered outside the courthouse, rallying for him as he faces legal consequences.
Amidst the chaos surrounding Trump’s arrest, correspondent Ben Bergquam reported on the hundreds who turned out early in the morning to protest what they see as corruption targeting the former President. These protesters aim to stand with Trump and express their discontent with the actions taken against him.
