On the morning of his surrender to authorities in a Georgia jail in Fulton County on Thursday, former President Donald Trump replaced his lawyer, going from one seasoned hip-hop attorney to another: He switched to Drew Findling, who represents Gucci Mane, Offset and others and is often referred to as a “billion dollar lawyer” by Steve Sadow, who worked with Rick Ross and Gunna recently got out of prison.
“I have been retained to represent President Trump in a Fulton County, Georgia case,” Sadow said in a statement to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “The president should never have been charged. He is innocent of all charges against him.”
Trump was indicted by a Fulton grand jury earlier this month on 13 felony counts in connection with his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 Georgia election.
