Former President Trump has departed his New Jersey golf club for Atlanta, where he’s set to face charges related to the Georgia election fraud case. Trump posted to Truth Social this afternoon and announced that he will surrender at the Fulton County Jail at 7:30 tonight. He wrote:
“But please excuse me, I have to start getting ready to head down to Atlanta, Georgia, where Murder and other Violent Crimes have reached levels never seen before, to get ARRESTED by a Radical Left, Lowlife District Attorney, Fani Willis, for A PERFECT PHONE CALL, and having the audacity to challenge a RIGGED & STOLLEN (sic) ELECTION. THE EVIDENCE IS IRREFUTABLE! ARREST TIME: 7:30 P.M.”
On Wednesday night, Trump released a pre-recorded interview with Tucker Carlson where he discussed his looming arrest in Georgia. He had strong words for Fulton County’s district attorney, Fani Willis, whom he dubbed a “lowlife.” He even declared that, “the district attorney, Fani, Fani Willis, in Atlanta, she’s getting killed,”
Trump continued his attack against the Georgia case, saying:
“They’re savage animals they are people that are sick. There’s a level of hatred that I’ve never seen.”
Willis set a deadline for Trump and associated defendants to surrender voluntarily by August 25 at noon. Formal arraignments are scheduled for early September.
