Trump’s mugshot has given MAGA its own sinister, vengeful iconic image

In the annals of American history, few mugshots are iconic enough to make it into the history books. When they do, however, they become cultural touchstones, reminiscent of the times and turmoil in which they were recorded.

Certainly the mug shot of the 45th One of those images is the President of the United States, who faces charges for his alleged involvement in the conspiracy to suppress the 2020 Georgia election.

A Fox News staffer absurdly claims that Trump was simply seeking a recount with the call to “find votes.”

A Fox News staffer suggested that Donald Trump’s call for Georgia election officials to “find votes” was merely a request for a recount and not an attempt to undermine the state’s election results.

Following Mr Trump’s fourth indictment – this time in Fulton County, Georgia, where he is accused of attempting to reverse the results of the state’s 2020 presidential election – Jonathan Turley, a Fox News staffer and law professor at the George Washington University, an assessment of the reasons for the impeachment of the former president are wrong.

“I think this criminalizes contesting elections,” he said on Thursday night’s edition of Hanny on Fox News. “Basically, there’s a Democratic prosecutor who says, ‘How dare you contest a Democratic victory?'”

Trump Laments “Travesty of Justice”

In the first photograph of a former president in US history, Donald Trump was captured looking at the camera in another extraordinary moment for the front-runner for the Republican nomination in 2024.

After spending about 20 minutes in jail Thursday night, the 77-year-old former president reiterated claims that the prosecution against Willis – like the others against him – was politically motivated.

“What happened here is a travesty of justice,” he told reporters. “I didn’t do anything wrong, and everyone knows it.”

One of the latest defendants to surrender, former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark, turned himself in early Friday and was released on $100,000 bail, records say.

Trump has yet to plead in the Georgia case. He has pleaded not guilty to two federal lawsuits alleging plotting to overturn the 2020 election and keeping classified documents after leaving office, and a New York state case involving hush money payments to a porn star.

Trump’s co-defendant remains in jail after telling the judge he couldn’t afford a private attorney

One of Donald Trump’s co-defendants in a wide-ranging voter fraud case in Georgia remained behind bars yesterday after telling a judge he could not afford a private attorney to represent him and being refused bail.

Harrison Floyd said in his first court appearance that he could not afford private counsel and had been denied representation by a public defender because he was unfit for it.

Mr Floyd, who appeared virtually, said it typically cost between $40,000 and $100,000 to hire a private attorney for the flight to Georgia.

“I can’t afford an attorney for this,” he said, telling Fulton County Superior Court Justice Emily Richardson that he didn’t want to put his family into debt.

The judge told him that he could either hire a lawyer or represent himself.

It was not immediately clear why Mr Floyd was told he could not be represented by a public defender. In general, defendants must meet certain financial requirements in order to qualify.

He will remain in the Fulton County jail, which the US Department of Justice is investigating for violence and unsanitary conditions, as well as 15 inmate deaths over the past year. One of them was a man whose family filed a lawsuit claiming he was “eaten alive” by bed bugs.
