The Georgia grand jury that was formed to target former President Donald Trump and his allies has a talker, and the things she is sharing with the media could put the whole case in jeopardy.
This grand jury focused on supposed election crimes during the 2020 election. Now Emily Kohrs, the foreperson of that grand jury, is speaking out.
She gave an “exclusive” interview to NBC, but then made it much less “exclusive” when she ran and talked to CNN as well.
Kohrs’ testimony in these media appearances came across as immature and someone who was looking for her 15 minutes of fame. So when the press tries to use her “revelations,” it just seems comical.
You can imagine what Trump’s lawyers are planning to do with this jury member.
Emily Kohrs sounds like a nervous, teenage girl, and she makes the grand jury in Georgia look like a joke that was propagated by some desperate people looking for a fight in the political arena.
If this is the kind of person that was allowed onto the grand jury, it says a lot about the prosecution’s legal pursuits.
It is not so much what Kohrs said, as much as it is how she says it. There is nothing really groundbreaking in her words.
The truth is that it’s probably illegal for her to discuss the grand jury deliberations. She sounds like she’s trying to toe some legal line, but ends up crossing it over and over again.
Kohrs says that the list of indictments is “very long,” and she also says that Trump was mentioned a lot in the proceedings. But she also said that there will be “no surprises” in indictments if you’ve been following.
She also just comes across as self-promoting and she giggles incessantly. She even makes the liberal reporter interviewing her uncomfortable. The whole thing is just miserable optics for the Left. There is no way to make the process look serious and unbiased after these interviews.
ACinPhilly tweeted this message, “I really wish Emily Kohrs would just keep her mouth shut! Trump’s Defense right now is drooling over these interviews. You don’t talk about this now….If she wants to blabber..wait until AFTER an indictment at least. Total airhead! #GeorgiaGrandJury #EmilyKohrs.”
Elie Honig, a federal prosecutor turned CNN analyst, said: “This is a very serious prospect. Indicting any person, you’re talking about potentially taking away that person’s liberty. We’re talking about potentially [indicting] a former president for the first time … she does not seem to be taking that very seriously.”
What can the prosecutors do to salvage this case after these “exclusive” interviews from the grand jury foreperson? They might want to consider charging Kohrs if she really did break the law in giving her revelations from the case. If they don’t do this, it looks even more like they are focused solely on political goals.
One writer said that the Kohrs interviews prove the old adage that you can “indict a ham sandwich.” And her words make it even more pronounced that these are “recommended indictments,” and they are not required to be acted on.
Really, think about what happened in Georgia in 2020…did it really justify 12 indictments?
When you place that along with the kind of person that was the foreperson, it just underscores the political nature of this whole case.
If prosecutors actually decide to take the next step, the defense attorneys, in this case, will be salivating over these interviews.
Kohrs summed things up when she said she did not vote in either the 2016 or 2020 elections but volunteered to be foreperson because “this is really cool, and because this is important.”
After months of secrecy, a foreperson for the Georgia special grand jury looking into former President Trump’s efforts in trying to overturn the 2020 election shared an update on the investigation.

It’s crazy to think that this is actually happening right now. So much for a FAIR trial.
