Former President Donald Trump made a last-minute change to his legal team in the Georgia case just hours before turning himself in.
On Thursday, the 45th president replaced his lawyer Drew Findling with Attorney Steven Sadow, to which the lawyer filed paperwork to legally represent Trump in the case.
Sadow released a statement regarding the last minute switch.
“I have been retained to represent President Trump in the Fulton County, Georgia case. The president should never have been indicted. He is innocent of all the charges brought against him,” Sadow said. “We look forward to the case being dismissed or, if necessary, an unbiased, open minded jury finding the president not guilty. Prosecutions intended to advance or serve the ambitions and careers of political opponents of the president have no place in our justice system.”
According to a Trump source, this was not about Findling’s performance, and described Sadow as the “best criminal defense attorney in Georgia.”
Jennifer Little, Trump’s other Georgia attorney, is anticipated to remain on the legal team and work with Sadow.
Days before Trump restructured his legal team, Findling and his partner Marissa Goldberg met with Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis to negotiate a $200,000 bond for Trump. Trump’s bond and other pre-negotiated release terms will allow him to be processed quickly when he turns himself in at the Fulton County jail later on Thursday.
Trump is said to be arrested on more than a dozen charges related to his alleged efforts to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election results.
