LIVE | Trump to surrender at jail in Fulton County, Georgia, on 2020 election charges

LIVE – Former President Donald Trump landed at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and is en route to the Fulton County jail to surrender and be booked on more than a dozen charges stemming from his efforts to reverse Georgia’s 2020 election results.

Key Points:

  1. Trump’s Arrival and Defenders: As Trump’s surrender awaited outside the jail, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene voiced strong support and criticized Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis for “abusing her power.” Greene, speaking after a conversation with Trump, defended his actions during the 2020 election and questioned his need to appear in court.
  2. Booking Process and Duration: The booking process typically includes fingerprinting and mugshots. However, legal agreements might prevent custody. Given Trump’s status, efficiency is anticipated. Fingerprints take about three minutes, and a mugshot takes around a minute and a half to two minutes.
  3. Case Context: Trump faces several cases, claiming political bias. The Georgia case, amidst his presidential campaign, involves charges of election manipulation. While treated like any other defendant, his court processing diverges from previous cases.
