Trump Torches Ga. Grand Jury as ‘Illegal Kangaroo Court’

'This Georgia case is ridiculous, a strictly political continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt of all time... '

(Adrienne Ferguson, Headline USA) In the wake of a rouge foreperson making a roundly-criticized media tour, former President Donald Trump blasted the Georgia grand jury that has been investigating his challenge to the flawed 2020 election.

The jury’s foreperson, Emily Kohrs, went on a whirlwind media blitz this week, disclosing the inner workings of the grand jury and strongly indicating that several indictments loomed, including one for Trump.

“This Georgia case is ridiculous, a strictly political continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt of all time,” Trump wrote on Truth Social.  “Now you have an extremely energetic young woman, the (get this!) ‘foreperson’ of the Racist D.A.’s Special Grand Jury, going around and doing a Media Tour revealing, incredibly, the Grand Jury’s inner workings & thoughts. This is not JUSTICE, this is an illegal Kangaroo Court.”

Trump’s legal team agreed and criticized the Fulton County prosecutor for a “clown-like” investigation.

“This type of carnival, clown-like atmosphere that was portrayed over the course of the last 36 hours takes away from the complete sanctity and the integrity and, for that matter, the reliability” of the investigation,” Trump attorney Drew Findling told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The judge overseeing the Georgia grand jury told the AJC that he had informed jurors that “They cannot discuss their deliberations,” but waffled on what that actually meant.

“So the question becomes what deliberations are, and I explained that would be the discussions they had amongst themselves when it was just the grand jurors in the room … when they were discussing what do we do with what we’ve learned,” Judge Robert McBurney said.

In a succession of interviews with the media on Tuesday, Kohrs said that she believed Trump being sworn-in after a subpoena would have been “cool.”

According to Kohrs, the panel voted against subpoenaing the former president because of concerns about time and resource constraints. Additionally, Kohrs expressed her “sadness” and “frustration” if the district attorney chooses not to press charges during an interview with CNN.
