JUST IN: Former President Donald Trump’s legal team on Monday negotiated a $200,000 bond in Fulton County where he has been ordered to surrender to authorities in the state of Georgia, where he faces charges for racketeering related to allegations he tried to overturn the 2020 election.
The former president of the United States — who claims it is all a political witch hunt — has been arrested three times in recent months, and so far he has avoided the indignity of a mugshot.
But Fulton County Sheriff Patrick Labat told reporters that Trump will be just like every other suspected criminal in his jurisdiction.
“It doesn’t matter your status, we’ll have a mug shot ready for you,” he said.
Trump’s lawyer John Eastman was granted a $100,000 bond, lawyer Ray Smith III was granted a $50,000 bond and bail bondsman Scott Hall was granted a $10,000 bond, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.
