Former president Donald Trump is set to be arraigned next week on charges relating to attempts to reverse the Georgia 2020 election results. Trump, 77, will present himself before Judge Scott McAfee of Fulton County Superior Court at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 6, preceding his 18 indicted associates. District Attorney Fani Willis has filed a total of 41 charges against the group in total.
The arraignment schedule is as follows: Rudy Giuliani, former Trump lawyer, at 9:45 a.m.; John Eastman and Sidney Powell, Trump’s attorneys, at 10:00 a.m. and 10:15 a.m. respectively; former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows at 10:30 a.m.; Cathy Latham, ex-Coffee County GOP chair, at 10:45 a.m.; Scott Hall, Republican poll observer, at 11:00 a.m.; Kenneth Chesebro, another former Trump lawyer, at 11:15 a.m.; public relations specialist Trevian Kutti at 11:30 a.m.; and Harrison Floyd, former director of Black Voices for Trump, at 11:45 a.m.
Judge McAfee recently authorized local TV stations to use cameras and recording equipment during the court sessions.
Willis indicted all 19 individuals under the RICO Act of Georgia, in addition to conspiracy, perjury, and urging a public official to breach their oath. All accused, except Floyd, who couldn’t post bail, were booked and photographed at Fulton County last week.
A recent ABC News/Ipsos poll revealed no change in Trump’s popularity, despite his Georgia indictment and the federal charges filed against him earlier this month by Special Counsel Jack Smith. On August 1, Smith accused Trump in Washington, DC, of four counts related to his efforts to overturn the 2020 election outcomes.
