More people in an alleged plan to sway the 2020 election results in Georgia turned themselves in Wednesday morning, and Rudy Giuliani is on the verge of surrendering.

Ahead of his trip to the Peach State, Giuliani told CNN he was going to the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta “to comply with the law.” Giuliani’s team is scheduled to meet with the district attorney’s office Wednesday afternoon to negotiate a bond. Once that was in place, Giuliani and his team would have to go to the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office to surrender.

On Wednesday morning, Kenneth Chesbrough, the architect of the Trump campaign’s voter fraud scheme, surrendered at the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta, making six of the 19 people charged in the scheme to be booked. Unlike other defendants, Giuliani plans to negotiate bond and turn himself in on the same day, CNN said, adding that the former New York mayor wants to complete the process before former President Donald Trump arrives.

The former president, who agreed to a $200,000 bond, is expected to travel to Georgia to surrender Thursday evening, sources familiar with the plans told CNN.

Trump will leave his Bedminster golf club in the afternoon and return to New Jersey following the surrender. There are no expected events at his club upon his return. Trump’s team is also making arrangements for Trump to speak to reporters traveling with him in Georgia, sources said, adding that the former president may decide not to.

Willis continues to meet with the defendants to negotiate the terms of a bond agreement.

CNN reported that Giuliani planned to meet with Willis on Wednesday to discuss a bond deal, according to multiple sources, and was expected to travel to Georgia with former New York Police Commissioner Bernie Kerig. A Georgia attorney to represent him in the case, according to one of those sources.

According to a source, Giuliani is expected to have a Georgia-licensed attorney. It is unclear whether that attorney will represent him throughout the case.
