Emily Kohrs intimates that Trump will face charges relating to 2020 election in Georgia.
Emily Kohrs, the foreperson of the special grand jury investigating possible interference in the 2020 election in Georgia, spoke to the press for the first time with a series of print and television interviews on Tuesday.
Although Kohrs was hesitant to divulge precise details – which Judge Robert McBurney had ordered to remain sealed – she gave strong hints regarding the jury’s recommendations to Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.
Kohrs confirmed the jury had recommended indicting several people, stating, “it’s not a short list” and “there definitely are some names that you expect.” She confirmed that over a dozen names were on the list, noting that six pages of the report are yet to be released.
She refused to comment on whether former President Trump would face charges but stated: “I don’t think there are any giant plot twists coming,” and “I would not expect you to be shocked.”
“This Georgia case is ridiculous, a strictly political continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt of all time,” claimed Trump on Truth Social. He added that Kohrs was “going around doing a Media Tour revealing, incredibly, the Grand Jury’s inner workings & thoughts. This is not JUSTICE, this is an illegal Kangaroo Court.”
Former Justice Department official Harry Litman tweeted that Kohrs has a first amendment right to speak, stating, “About all the judge really can do is scowl at her if they meet. Of course, her 15 minute PR tour could be bad for the case and give rise to defense motions to e.g. change venue. Not smart but not illegal.”
