Trump Goon Sidney Powell Placed Under A $100,000 Bond In Criminal Case


This week, defendants in the recently unveiled Georgia criminal case alleging a vast conspiracy targeting the state’s election results from 2020 began showing up in Fulton County for processing. That list includes attorney and Trump ally Sidney Powell, who an available bond order says will now be under a $100,000 bond.

The document outlines a breakdown of the bond’s size, connecting to the seven individual charges she is facing, which include alleged offenses evidently involved with the ploy in the state’s Coffee County to copy data from local elections systems. The somewhat covert effort mirrored attempts undertaken in other states to collect ordinarily protected data from these systems to ostensibly support the ambitions in Trump’s circles to prove the existence of widespread fraud in the 2020 presidential race. Powell and the other defendants have not seemingly been required to themselves produce the entirety of their bond amounts to secure release, with commercial surety instead among the options for fulfilling the requirements.

Powell’s bond document also notes she is required to make regular contact with the pre-trial supervision team. Charged in the same case, ex-President Donald Trump will be out on a $200,000 bond following his surrender to local authorities on Thursday for processing.

His bond agreement states that Trump “shall perform no act to intimidate any person known to him or her to be a codefendant or witness in this case or to otherwise obstruct the administration of justice,” and the subsequent definition of these standards provided in the document even covers reposts on social media from other accounts. Trump has a history of reposting sometimes violently antagonistic comments from his fans, besides making his own remarks that often draw concern for how they could be used to fuel violence. Around his eventual indictment in New York, Trump infamously spoke of “death and destruction” befalling the community, and he also said he’d go after figures who targeted him — the identities of whom were disputed.
