Hours before Donald Trump is expected to turn himself in to Georgia authorities, he's reportedly made a big change to his legal team in the Peach State.
WSB-TV reported, on Thursday (Aug 24), Trump brought in Steven Sadow replaces attorney Drew Findling just ahead of his visit to Fulton County. Sadow spoke with ABC News about his new client.
“I have been retained to represent President Trump in the Fulton County, Georgia case,” Sadow said. “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.”
Attorney Steven Sadow has represented several high-profile clients during their legal troubles in Georgia including T.I., former Georgia linebacker Adam Anderson, and Gunna.
Both Trump and Young Thug are facing charges connected to Georgia's Reacketer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or RICO.
Trump is facing a 41-count indictment bravado against charges is reportedly gone. An insider told Page Six, Trump’s indictment has “brought about a change.” The insider added, “he’s not so confident anymore. He’s not acting so cocky anymore. He’s not lashing out so much. The arrogance is gone.”
Bond is set $200,000 for Former President Donald Trump in a Georgia RICO indictment that also charges 18 of his business associates. According to The New York Times, Trump and the defendants must pay a cash bond upon booking in Atlanta.
Fulton County Sheriff Pat Labat said his department plans on following “normal practices,” including taking mugshots, when former President Trump and the other co-defendants are formally booked.
Of the co-defendants, former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows has filed to have his case moved to federal court, where he intends to claim federal immunity from the state prosecution. The timeline set forth in a determination on that by a federal court, however, would not keep Meadows from needing to also appear at the Fulton County Jail.
Several attorneys for the various co-defendants say there have been negotiations with local authorities on bond conditions that would allow the co-defendants to leave jail immediately after booking.
Additionally, to Trump, John Eastman, Mark Meadows, and more will be booked at the jail on Rice Street. That includes Trevian Kutti, who once was a publicist for R. Kelly and Kanye West. All charged party members will be fingerprinted and have a mugshot.
