(TheRedAlertNews.com) – If a new article just published a short while ago by The New York Times quoting the Georgia special grand jury’s forewoman is accurate, former President Donald J. Trump is almost certain to be criminally indicted.
Specifically, a special grand jury in Georgia that was investigating election interference by former President Donald J. Trump and his allies has recommended the indictment of multiple people on a range of charges, according to the forewoman of the jury, Emily Kohrs.
The grand jury met for nearly seven months in a courthouse in downtown Atlanta and heard testimony from 70 witnesses.
Most of the report remains sealed. Kohrs declined to discuss who specifically the grand jury recommended for indictment, as the judge handling the case decided to keep those details secret.
However, she did mention that seven sections of the report are still under wraps and deal with indictment recommendations.
When asked if the jurors had recommended indicting Mr. Trump, Kohrs gave a cryptic answer: “You’re not going to be shocked. It’s not rocket science.”
The investigation in Atlanta has been seen as one of the most significant legal threats to Mr. Trump as he begins another run for the presidency.
Jack Smith, the special counsel appointed by the Justice Department, oversees two other Trump-related criminal investigations.
Meanwhile, the Manhattan district attorney’s office has begun presenting evidence to a grand jury on whether Mr. Trump paid hush money to a porn star during his 2016 presidential campaign, which could lead to potential criminal charges against the former president in the near future.
A focal point of the Atlanta inquiry is a call that Mr. Trump made to Brad Raffensperger, the Georgia secretary of state, in which he pressed Raffensperger, a fellow Republican, to recalculate the results and “find” 11,780 votes, or enough to overturn his loss in the state.
Kohrs stated that the investigation started with this first phone call. “If the judge releases the recommendations, it is not going to be some giant plot twist,” she added. “You probably have a fair idea of what may be in there. I’m trying very hard to say that delicately.”
Special grand juries in Georgia do not have indictment powers, and the ultimate charging decisions will be made by Fani T. Willis, the district attorney of Fulton County, Ga., who has led the investigation.
Mr. Trump was not among the 70 witnesses, and his lawyers have stated that he did nothing wrong.
