The forewoman of the Atlanta-area special grand jury that investigated alleged election interference by former President Donald Trump and his allies in Georgia said Tuesday that multiple indictments were recommended and "you're not going to be shocked" about whether Trump was indicted.
Forewoman Emily Kohrs said would not specifically say who the Fulton County grand jury recommended to be indicted, but stated, "It is not a short list," The New York Times reported.
When asked whether the jury recommended for the indictment of Trump, Kohrs cryptically said, "You’re not going to be shocked. It’s not rocket science," and "You won’t be too surprised."
The jury met with 70 witnesses over nearly seven months about meddling in the 2020 presidential election results. The charging decisions will ultimately be up to Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who said last month that a decision is "imminent."
"I will tell you that if the judge releases the recommendations, it is not going to be some giant plot twist," Kohrs also said. "You probably have a fair idea of what may be in there. I’m trying very hard to say that delicately."
Last week, a few pages of the Georgia grand jury report were released.
"A majority of the Grand Jury believes that perjury may have been committed by one or more witnesses testifying before it," the report stated. "The Grand Jury recommends that the District Attorney seek appropriate indictments for such crimes where the evidence is compelling."
