Trump Co-Defendant Harrison Floyd Being Denied Bond Is a Travesty of Justice, According To Law Enforcement Veteran Michael Letts
The founder and President of InVest USA believes that the anti-Trump feelings of two Georgia judges are preventing the defendant from returning to his family.
Late last week, former President Donald Trump, alongside 18 co-defendants surrendered in Georgia to charges surrounding an election interference case. While most of them were able to post bond and return to their families, one defendant – Harrison Floyd – was not.
The Black Voices for Trump leader is currently being held at the Fulton County Jail, and has been denied bond by Fulton County Superior Court Judge Emily Richardson. She believes that, despite the fact that Floyd had turned himself in willingly on charges, he posed a “flight risk” and could “commit additional criminal felonies” if released.
Floyd’s charges including violating Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, as well as influencing a witness and conspiracy to commit solicitation of false statements. That said, neither Richardson – nor fellow Georgia Judge Scott McAfee – provided any additional reasoning for Floyd’s bond denial.
Is this a problem with Georgia’s legal system, or perhaps something that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp needs to address? Joining us now to discuss this further is Michael Letts, a law enforcement veteran with over 30 years of experience under his belt.
