A special grand jury investigating suspected Trump 2020 presidential election interference in Georgia recommended many charges, the jury’s forewoman stated in a Tuesday interview.
“It is not a short list,” jury forewoman Emily Kohrs said of the indictment recommendations, although she did not reveal any specific names in an interview with the New York Times.
The big question is whether former President Donald Trump will be charged, and Kohrs’ words are unlikely to inspire much confidence among Trump’s fans.
“You’re not going to be shocked. It’s not rocket science,” she said when asked if the former president would be indicted. A section of the grand jury findings from Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ investigation has already been made public according to the Mediaite.
Trump maintains that President Joseph Biden won the 2020 presidential election through fraud, although no evidence of widespread fraud has been revealed. Georgia was one of the states Trump was anxious about winning, and in a now-infamous phone call, the then-president pressed Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to “find” thousands of votes for Trump that Raffensperger said were nonexistent.
From Willis’ investigation:
The Grand Jury heard extensive testimony on the subject of alleged election fraud from poll workers, investigators, technical experts, and State of Georgia employees and officials, as well as from persons still claiming that such fraud took place We find by unanimous vote that no widespread fraud took place in the Georgia 2020 presidential election that could result’1n overturning that election.
The report called for many indictments. The Georgia investigation is only one of several legal issues that the former president is dealing with, including charges that he mishandled classified papers after leaving the White House.
The phone contact between Trump and Raffensberger, according to Kohrs, was a primary point of focus in the jury’s discussions about alleged election interference. According to the foreman, they began discussions with that infamous call. Over the course of more than six months, the grand jury heard from hundreds of witnesses.
“I will tell you that if the judge releases the recommendations, it is not going to be some giant plot twist,” Kohrs said.
