HipKat Posted February 21 Share Posted February 21 A Georgia grand jury recommended indictments against multiple people on various charges after concluding its eight-month investigation into election fraud involving former President Donald Trump, the panel's foreperson told the New York Times Tuesday. Emily Kohrs declined to name any of those who were referred for charges, including whether Trump was among them, in a final report delivered to Atlanta-area District Attorney Fani Willis in December. Referring to Trump, Kohrs said: "You are not going to be shocked," according to the Times report. Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney ordered the bulk of that report, including the charging recommendations, to remain sealed. What we know about the grand jury's recommendations:Georgia grand jury recommends perjury charges for unnamed witnesses in Trump investigation Witnesses accused of lying:Witnesses in Georgia Trump probe suspected of lying, raising more questions in closely watched inquiry McBurney made a small portion of the document public last week, including the panel's conclusion that there was no evidence of fraud as repeatedly claimed by the former president, along with a recommendation that perjury charges be pursued against unnamed witnesses suspected of lying under oath. In a separate interview with the Associated Press, Kohrs declined to discuss details about the panel's deliberations but generally described her impressions of high profile witnesses, among the 75 who testified before the panel. Of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, the foreperson referred to the state's top election official as "really geeky kind of funny." It was Trump's Jan. 2, 2021 telephone call to Raffensperger, urging him to "find" 11,780 additional votes to flip the statewide election from President Joe Biden that prompted Willis to launch the criminal investigation. Kohrs did not immediately respond to inquiries from USA TODAY. 1 Quote “There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind, never even considered for mass production.
