Harrison Floyd Wants Bond Relaxed To Campaign For Trump

Floyd asked a Fulton County judge to be allowed to communicate with Donald Trump so he can help the campaign.

As Fox 5 Atlanta reported, Harrison also asked Judge Scott McAfee for permission to use Twitter/X to discuss work or things outside of the case. McAfee indicated that he was open to amending Floyd’s bond but has not yet made a ruling. 

Though McAfee did indicate his openness to changing the conditions of Floyd’s bond, he also seemed cautious, saying that he wanted “reasonable restrictions” and would assess “where we are” as Trump, despite his multiple court cases, remains the frontrunner for the Republican Party nomination. The former leader of Blacks For Trump’s attorney argued, according to The Hill, that communication could be restricted to “work purposes.” His attorney also said that his client’s ability to fundraise has been affected, saying “the court essentially silenced him.”

Judge McAfee also said there is “really no method of oversight,” and also said that letting Trump and Floyd speak is not “something we’re going to be able to allow” while he does believe that the current restrictions may not be necessary. 

McAfee indicated that he is “at a minimum willing to modify that” and that he will re-examine the language concerning Floyd’s ability to have indirect contact with other defendants, and will be looking at the matter more closely before making a decision.
