Harrison Floyd, one of former President Donald Trump's 18 co-defendants in Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis's election probe, announced on Wednesday that he mulling a run for Congress in the Peach State after securing release from Fulton County jail.

"I would like to thank District Attorney Fani Willis for giving me what we call in our community a Negro wake up call. She has reminded me that ... our country and the state of Georgia will not be able to be a righteous nation if we stand on pillars of corruption, racism, lying, and cheating," he said. "And when we are governed by men and women who are more concerned about things in the world rather than serving the citizens they’re sworn to protect, we end up going into more and deeper darkness."

"So, the only thing we can do is follow God and lead by example and so, I'm also announcing right now that I am exploring running for congressional seat in Georgia. I'm coming back here to get things right thank you," he continued.

Floyd, the leader of Black Voices for Trump, was denied bail after he surrendered himself at the Fulton County jail last week after being deemed a flight risk. He secured his release on Wednesday.

Appearing on the Real America's Voice Network on Wednesday, Floyd told host Steve Bannon that Willis had charged him because he is "aware of what transpired" in apparent reference to alleged election fraud in the Peach State.

"Fulton County fumbled the cover up," he said, before opining that the county has brought charges as a means of pressuring him.
