Reports that Trump had reorganized his team surfaced just hours before he was set to turn himself in. Before his surrender on Thursday night, the former president of the United States had changed his top Georgia attorney.
Donald Trump replaces lawyer on team hours before surrender at Georgia jail.
The reorganization of Trump’s legal team occurs as the former president prepares to turn himself in at a Fulton County jail on Thursday night after posting his intentions on Truth Social.
Steven Sadow, an Atlanta-based lawyer whose website describes him as a “special counsel for white collar and high-profile defense,” will replace Drew Findling. Before Willis ever filed charges against Donald Trump, Findling made a series of forceful but unsuccessful attempts to invalidate the charges, eventually throwing evidence out.

However, the odd alliance between Findling and Trump also made headlines. Findling, a self-described liberal, has previously criticized Trump in social media remarks, swiftly attracting media attention. Trump is adding a lawyer who has previously challenged the state’s broad RICO law, under which he and his 18 co-defendants have been charged.
Notably, Findling significantly arranged Trump’s $200,000 bond with Jennifer Little and Marissa Goldberg. Little is expected to remain on the team.

Sadow stated to ABC News, “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. 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.”
