Fulton County FAIL: Jury Forewoman’s ‘Victory Lap’ Could Kibosh Criminal Charges

OOPS!

Of the myriad political and legal threats that former President Donald Trump is facing these days, the potential indictments coming out of Fulton County, Georgia appeared to be next to arrive.

Over the course of the last week, information has been made public indicating that there were a number of potential indictments to be recommended by the grand jury investigating Trump’s communication with Georgia officials in the aftermath of the 2020 election.

Then, just yesterday, the grant jury’s forewoman took to the airwaves to make some rather stunning allusions to what’s coming over the horizon, toeing the line between naming anyone or anything outright in a number of interviews that were described as “smug” and “coy”.

Those appearances may have just jeopardized the indictments that Emily Kohrs was not-so-subtly excited about during her 15 minutes of infamy.

Lawyers close to several Republican witnesses in the Fulton County investigation into post-election interference by former President Donald Trump and his allies are preparing to move to quash any possible indictments by the district attorney, Fani Willis.

Their attempt to do so would be based on recent public statements by the forewoman of a special purpose grand jury, Emily Kohrs, according to two people familiar with the discussions who spoke with CBS News.

There was little left to the imagination during Kohr’s quasi-cryptic diatribes.

Kohrs declined to name anyone the grand jury recommended for indictment. Asked by the New York Times if Trump himself might be indicted, Kohrs replied, “You’re not going to be shocked. It’s not rocket science.”

She said the grand jury decided not to interview Trump, though his name was frequently brought up.

“I will tell you that it was a process where we heard his name a lot,” Kohrs said on CNN Tuesday. “We definitely heard a lot about former President Trump, and we definitely discussed him a lot in the room. And I will say that when this list comes out, you wouldn’t — there are no major plot twists waiting for you.”

Donald Trump was not called as a witness in the case, and has repeatedly denied any wrong doing.
