Title: Giuliani, Powell Surrender as Part of Alleged Georgia Election Subversion Plot
Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, two prominent figures associated with former President Donald Trump, have surrendered to authorities in the Georgia election subversion case. The charges stem from their alleged involvement in a scheme to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia.
Giuliani, once Trump’s personal lawyer, faces 13 crimes, among which is breaking the state’s racketeering act. Powell, a former attorney for the Trump campaign, is also implicated in the alleged plot. Both individuals have agreed to bail packages, with Giuliani’s set at $150,000 and Powell’s at $100,000.
In addition to Giuliani and Powell, Kenneth Chesebro, the supposed mastermind behind the Trump campaign’s fake electors plot, has also turned himself in. Trump himself is expected to surrender on Thursday, after agreeing to post a $200,000 bond.
These high-profile surrenders come after Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis charged Trump and 18 others for their alleged involvement in schemes to tamper with Georgia’s election results. The charges range from election fraud to conspiracy.
Ahead of the Friday deadline set by Willis, several other defendants have already turned themselves in. However, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark have requested a federal judge to intervene and prevent their arrests by local authorities.
Amidst the ongoing investigation, the Fulton County district attorney’s office has issued subpoenas to two individuals who listened in on Trump’s controversial call with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger in January 2021. These subpoenas were issued as a response to Meadows’ attempt to have the case against him dismissed.
The rush of surrenders and legal maneuvers highlights the magnitude of the Georgia election subversion case. With high-profile figures facing serious charges, the spotlight remains on the investigation as it delves into allegations of electoral interference.
