Former President Donald Trump will remain free on bail ahead of his trial for alleged election-related crimes in Georgia.

A court order issued Monday by Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee set a total $200,000 bond for 13 counts — $80,000 on a racketeering charge and $10,000 each for 12 other charges, including multiple allegations of criminal conspiracy, false statements, and criminal solicitation.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis indicted Trump and 18 co-defendants for alleged RICO (Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) violations, forgery, false statements, conspiracy to influence an election, perjury, and influencing witnesses.

McAfee’s bond order comes with some restraints, including some restrictions on the extent to which he may try to litigate the matter in the court of public opinion.
