Fulton County District Attorney Fani T. Willis has filed a motion to revoke the bond of Harrison Floyd, one of the co-defendants in the criminal racketeering case against Donald Trump and his allies. The request comes after Willis accused Floyd of intimidating potential witnesses in the case. According to the motion, Floyd has allegedly violated his bond agreement by engaging in numerous intentional and flagrant violations, including direct or indirect communication with witnesses and co-defendants.
Harrison Floyd, the former leader of Black Voices for Trump, is currently facing three charges related to his alleged harassment of two Black women who worked as election workers in Atlanta. These women were falsely accused of election fraud by Trump and his allies during the 2020 campaign. Floyd has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The prosecution’s motion also claims that Floyd has been consistently posting messages on social media targeting Ruby Freeman, one of the election workers. Prosecutors argue that Floyd’s actions amount to witness intimidation and have resulted in renewed threats of violence against Freeman from third parties.
In response to the motion, Floyd took to Twitter and shared a video of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas during his 1991 confirmation hearing. Floyd commented, “Clarence Thomas was right. This is a circus. It is a national disgrace. It is a high tech lynching for an uppity black.”
Floyd is the only co-defendant in the Fulton County case who has been incarcerated. He spent five nights in the Fulton County Jail after initially failing to negotiate a bond agreement before turning himself in to authorities.
The motion filed by DA Fani T. Willis argues that Floyd’s actions demonstrate a significant threat of witness intimidation and obstruction of justice, making him ineligible for bond.
