Former President Trump indicated he'll surrender to Fulton County authorities in the alleged Georgia election interference case on Thursday.

Driving the news: "Can you believe it? I'll be going to Atlanta, Georgia, on Thursday to be ARRESTED," said Trump in a Truth Social post Monday after his bail was set at $200,000 in the Fulton County case.

  • Trump then went on to attack Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who signed a court filing on the former president's bond that includes strict conditions on witness intimidation.

The big picture: An Atlanta grand jury indicted Trump and 18 co-defendants last week over alleged efforts to overturn Georgia's 2020 election results — marking the former president's fourth indictment in four months.

  • He denies any wrongdoing in the cases.
