Trump Arrives in Georgia

Former President Donald Trump traveled to Atlanta yesterday evening, turning himself in on state felony charges alleging he conspired to overturn the 2020 election. One of 19 indicted, Trump was released on predetermined bail terms of $200K. It's Trump's fourth indictment this year; he has maintained his innocence in all cases (see timeline).

Trump was required to take a mug shot, a step that was not required during previous intakes this year. Fulton County prosecutor Fani Willis proposed a quick turnaround for the start of the trial—seeking a start date of Oct. 23. The presiding judge has yet to respond as of this writing.

The processing comes a day after the first GOP primary debate, which Trump declined to participate in. He currently leads the field of contenders by double digits in primary polls from Iowa, the first primary state on the schedule.

Separately, House Republicans said they would launch a probe into Georgia officials' investigation of Trump, alleging a political motivation behind the charges.
