Towards indictments in the case of alleged interference by the Trump camp in the 2020 presidential election
A grand jury in the United States investigating interference by Donald Trump's camp in the 2020 presidential election in the state of Georgia has recommended indictments against several people, the juror revealed to US media on Tuesday main, without specifying whether the former president was involved.
The grand jury has spent seven months examining accusations that Donald Trump and his allies tried to change the results of the election presidential election in Georgia, a state in the south of the country, which voted for Joe Biden.
Emily Kohrs told MSNBC: “It's not a short list” to discuss the number of people targeted by these grand jury recommendations, and the grievances against them. But the juror didn't name names.
Ms. Kohrs also told the outlet that more than a dozen people were targeted.
On that list, ” there are certainly names that you would recognize”, she added before specifying: “There are also names that you might not recognize”.
Emily Kohrs did not reveal whether Donald Trump himself, who recently announced his candidacy for the White House for 2024, was on this list.
The juror, on the other hand, told the New York Times that people would not be “shocked” by the jury's revelations. “It's not rocket science,” she said.
The 23-juror investigative panel received testimony from 75 witnesses, including one of Donald Trump's former White House chiefs of staff, Mark Meadows, and Republican Senator from South Carolina Lindsey Graham. , and former New York City mayor and former Donald Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
A Georgia judge cleared the release last week of three redacted sections of the grand jury report, revealing that its members have uncovered no evidence of large-scale voter fraud, undermining Donald Trump's claims that the election was stolen from him.
Local prosecutor Fani Willis will make the final decision on whether or not to indict those targeted by the grand jury's recommendations.
The investigation was launched after Donald Trump called on January 2, 2021, in which he urged election officials to “find” the 11,780 votes he needed to win this state against Joe Biden .
This is one of multiple investigations examining the potentially criminal wrongdoings of the former Republican president and those close to him, who are accused of hatching a plan to stay in power despite defeat in the presidential election of 2020.
