Harrison Floyd, Trump’s only ally who will spend time in jail, surrenders

Harrison Floyd, the former director of Black Voices for Trump, has been booked into the the Fulton County Jail. He is the only one of the 19 charged in the 2020 election conspiracy case without a consent bond order.

Floyd is being charged with violating the state’s RICO Act, conspiracy to commit solicitation of false statements and writings and influencing witnesses. Without bond, Floyd will be the only one of his peers to spend real time in the Rice Street facility.

Ten others have been booked and released within hours. Former President Donald Trump, whose bond was set at $200,000, intends to surrender at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

Floyd, a former suburban Atlanta congressional candidate, allegedly put co-defendant Trevian Kutti in touch with Fulton elections worker Ruby Freeman. Kutti and Floyd spoke to Freeman at length, pressuring her to “reveal information under the threat of incarceration if she did not comply.” It was not clear how his Fulton case would proceed.

Earlier this year, he was charged and arrested in Maryland after allegedly attacking an FBI agent that was involved in the Justice Department’s investigation to overturn the 2020 elections, The Washington Post reported. The previous arrest could have complicated Floyd being able to negotiate a bond agreement with the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, which has not commented on the matter.

Before turning himself in, Floyd was seen on a livestream approaching a Newsmax reporter outside the jail.

“My name is Harrison Floyd. I am one of the 19 that was indicted,” Floyd can be seen saying while being escorted by deputies. He was also dismissed by the reporter, who appeared not to recognize him.

Before he was booked, Floyd posted a video on X, the social media site formerly known as Twitter, as he was being driven to the jail. Kanye West’s chart-topping song “Jail” could be heard playing in the background.
