Five members from the Georgia grand jury investigating former president Donald Trump’s potential attempt to overturn the election results in the state spoke anonymously to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
During their interview, they provided insight into the eight months of testimony and the due diligence in the case, without providing any insight on whether or not Trump was actually going to be found guilty in the case.
Following the release of parts of the grand jury report in February, a list of high-profile witnesses who testified under oath was revealed, with the jury members noting concerns that some of the witnesses had not been truthful under oath.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis started the investigation in the state after the phone call from Trump to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger became known. During the infamous call, the former President had called on Raffensperger to “find” the 11,780 votes required in order for Trump to be the victor in the election.
Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina had been one of the major witnesses in the case. Graham was called in to testify about Trump’s state of mind following the election. As one juror revealed, Graham had testified that at the time “if somebody had told Trump that aliens came down and stole Trump ballots, that Trump would have believed it.”
Jury foreperson Emily Kohrs was not included in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution interview, but she had previously stated that the suggested indictments are “not a short list.” However, following her statements there had been a lot of criticism online over her jump into the spotlight.
