Mr. Clark, a former assistant attorney general for the Justice Department’s civil division, was released on a $100,000 bond. In addition to the state racketeering charge, he faces a felony charge of criminal attempt to commit false statements and writings, based on a letter he wanted to send in December 2020 to state officials in Georgia that falsely claimed that the Justice Department had “identified significant concerns” that would affect the state’s election results.

Several of the defendants, including Mr. Clark, are seeking to have their cases shifted to federal court, a relatively uncommon step that is known as removal. Earlier this week, U.S. District Court Judge Steve Jones rejected efforts by Mr. Clark and another defendant, Mark Meadows, Mr. Trump’s former White House chief of staff, to prevent them from being booked at the county jail while they were seeking removal of their cases to federal court.

Ms. Kutti, a music publicist who prosecutors say harassed an election worker, Ruby Freeman, on Mr. Trump’s behalf, surrendered to the jail on Friday morning and was booked into the jail’s system, online records showed. She was released on $75,000 bond. Ms. Kutti has represented musicians like R. Kelly and the rapper Ye, formerly known as Kanye, in the past.

Prosecutors say Mr. Lee, a pastor from Illinois, also took part in the effort to harass and intimidate Mr. Freeman. He, too, was registered at the jail and released on $75,000 bond, records show.

A third defendant accused of harassing Ms. Freeman, Harrison Floyd, did not negotiate a bail agreement with prosecutors and was held overnight at the jail. Mr. Floyd, a political organizer from Rockville, Md., was expected to appear for a bail hearing on Friday before Judge Scott McAfee of the Fulton County Superior Court, who is handing the election interference case.
