(PartiallyPolitics.com) – On Wednesday, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) claimed that the Georgia special grand jury foreperson had done “a lot of damage” with her recent media appearances.
In a recent interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, said that while she had not broken any laws, she had really damaged the case. He recalled that when he was the U.S. attorney for New Jersey he would inform all grand jurors that they put a lot of effort into the probe and that it was better to avoid discussing the case in public before action was taken as they could end up risking the investigation.
Emily Kohrs, the forewoman of the Fulton County grand jury that investigated former President Trump’s attempts to overturn the state election results, recently made a number of media appearances in which she discussed the outcome of the final report. She further claimed that no one would be surprised by the report charging recommendations.
While a standard grand jury can usually issue an indictment the special grand jury in Georgia is only allowed to make recommendations. It is then up to Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis to decide whether or not he wants to file indictments against the people recommended.
Kohrs recently said that if the judges decided to release the list of recommendations no one would be shocked and that it was not “some giant plot twist.” She added that people already had an idea of who would be on the list.
Christie argued that these remarks “create a real challenge” for prosecutors if they do decide to press charges against Trump and his allies.
