Trump’s Arraignment To Take Place On September 6th

(TargetDailyNews.com) – Former President Donald Trump is scheduled to be arraigned on charges in his recent Georgia indictment pertaining to the 2020 presidential election at 9:30 a.m. on September 6th.

Trump’s co-defendants are also scheduled to be arraigned that day. Former New York City mayor and Trump’s former lawyer Rudy Giuliani will be arraigned at 9:45 a.m. The remaining co-defendants will be arraigned in continuing 15-minute intervals.

Ray Smith, a former attorney for Trump who represented him in other Georgia election-related cases, has waived his arraignment in a court filing following a not-guilty plea on Monday, making him the first of the 19 defendants to enter a plea in the case.

The former president has been charged with felony racketeering along with a myriad of conspiracy charges related to his alleged role in trying to alter the outcome of the 2020 presidential election in Georgia, a crucial battleground state that President Joe Biden won.

Trump, along with his co-defendants, were booked in the Fulton County Jail last week. Trump’s mugshot was released to the public, making him the first president in American history to have his mugshot taken.

The former president has since denied any wrongdoing and has repeatedly called the indictment, along with the three other indictments he faces from New York and the federal government, a political witch hunt intended to keep him from running for president in 2024. Several of his co-defendants have also denied wrongdoing.

After surrendering to Fulton County on Thursday, August 24th, he was released as part of an agreement, part of which was a $200,000 bond. The most notable part of the agreement, however, was that the former president could not make any “direct or indirect threat” against any of his co-defendants, witnesses, or anyone else. This also extends to social media, where many have speculated that Trump may violate the order due to his sometimes outlandish social media posts.
