After months of clandestine, politically motivated work in the depths of the Georgia swamp, it appears as though the grand jury investigating former President Trump is ready for some of their work to go public.
The case involves Trump’s communications with Georgia officials in the wake of the 2020 election. Some on the left have suggested that the former President may have committed a crime in looking for assistance bolstering his claims of election fraud, while Trump himself has adamantly insisted that this was little more than another partisan attack with a nothing-burger at its core.
This week, the Fulton County District Attorney released a partial report from the grand jury itself, and it appears to suggest that there are charges forthcoming.
A Georgia special grand jury concluded that one or more witnesses in a probe into possible election meddling by former President Donald Trump may have lied under oath, and recommended a prosecutor pursue criminal indictments in those cases.
The grand jury also said in its final report on its monthslong investigation that it found no significant fraud in Georgia’s 2020 presidential election, which was won by President Joe Biden.
The grand jury’s conclusions were contained in the portion of its final report that were unsealed Thursday by a judge in Fulton County Superior Court.
There was no mistaking the situation.
“A majority of the Grand Jury believes that perjury may have been committed by one or more witnesses testifying before it,” said the report.
“The Grand Jury recommends that the District Attorney seek appropriate indictments for such crimes where the evidence is compelling,” the report said.
The identity of the purported perjurers has not been revealed as of this writing.
