Former US President Donald Trump’s co-defendant, Harrison Floyd, has been accused of intimidating witnesses and co-defendants. The head of Black Voices for Trump faces charges in Fulton County of violating Georgia’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.
The 39-year-old marine veteran has been accused of pressuring Fulton County election worker Ruby Freeman to change voting results in the 2020 presidential elections. Freeman testified before the House Committee looking into the January 6 riots in Washington.
Freeman said that she was forced to stay away from home for two months and even quit her job after she was threatened by Harrison Floyd after the elections. Harrison Floyd is a prominent Republican in Georgia and ran for the Congressional seat in 2019. He dropped out of the race a month after he announced his candidacy. He instead backed Rick McCormick. The Republican representative ultimately lost to Democrat Carolyn Bourdeaux.
Harrison Floyd Not Going Back To Jail At The Moment
Harrison Floyd has also been accused by prosecutors of hostile behavior over social media against potential witnesses in the case. They include Freeman and Brad Raffensperger, the Georgia Secretary of State. Fani Willis, the Fulton County DA, has called such action a flagrant and intentional violation of release conditions. He has asked Scott McAfee, the judge presiding over the case to revoke Harrison Floyd’s bond. This could again send him back to prison.
Floyd faces charges of influencing witnesses, racketeering, and false writings and statements. Federal prosecutors have also asked a Washington appeals court to approve a gag order on Trump for his record of targeting adversaries via social media that have often endangered them. But a Fulton County Judge has rejected to revoke Harrison Floyd’s bond. Judge McAfee ruled that while Floyd has violated bond conditions on multiple occasions, he also ruled that revocation was not required in this case.
