Here Are The Mug Shots Of Everyone Indicted In The Georgia Election Case

[ad_1]

Last week, a grand jury in Georgia accused former President Donald Trump and 18 co-conspirators of scheming to overturn the state’s results of the 2020 presidential election so that he could remain in office.

In the Aug. 14 indictment are racketeering and corrupt organizations statutes that, in addition to Trump, have resulted in a long list of charges for his close allies like Rudy Giuliani, Mark Meadows and John Eastman.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis gave all 19 defendants until noon on Friday to surrender. As of Wednesday evening, nine of the indicted co-conspirators have turned themselves in to the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office. Trump, whose bond has been set at $200,000, has confirmed he will surrender on Thursday.

Despite now being indicted in four criminal cases, Trump has managed to avoid getting his mug shot taken. But soon after the indictment’s release, Fulton County Sheriff Patrick Labat said the defendants ― including Trump ― will not receive any special treatment when they arrive for their arraignment.

“It doesn’t matter your status. We have a mug shot ready for you,” he told NPR. “Unless someone tells me differently, we are following our normal practices.”

So far, Labat has stayed true to his word. Here are the mug shots of every defendant that has so far turned themselves in, provided by the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office.

John Eastman, former Trump attorney

Eastman was instrumental in some of Trump’s efforts to remain in power, notably for writing a memo that argued the former president could keep his seat if then-Vice President Mike Pence overturned the election results during a joint session of Congress on Jan. 6, 2021. The plan included implementing “fake” electors in seven battleground states ― including Georgia ― who would falsely certify Trump’s win.

Eastman surrendered on Tuesday, and has since been released on a $100,000 bond.

Rudy Giuliani, former Trump attorney

Giuliani, a longtime friend of Trump’s, was also central to Trump’s scheme to overturn the election. He is facing over a dozen charges for spreading lies about election fraud and falsely claiming that voting machines were tampered with to intentionally hurt Trump. He also lied about voter fraud in a Georgia Senate hearing about the election.

The former New York City mayor surrendered on Wednesday, and has been released on a $150,000 bond.

Powell was proudly one of Trump’s most involved lawyers when it came to filing lawsuits across the country challenging the results of the 2020 election. Prosecutors said Powell was one of many who met conservative attorney Lin Wood “for the purpose of exploring options to influence the results of the November 2020 elections in Georgia and elsewhere.”

Powell surrendered Wednesday on a $100,000 bond.
