Trump Attacks Red State Lawmakers

This was unexpected.

Former President Donald Trump slammed the foreperson of the Georgia Grand Jury, claiming her media tour has been “revealing” the inner workings of the Grand Jury.

Taking to Truth Social, Trump branded the Georgia Grand Jury probe into his efforts to interfere with the state’s election results as “ridiculous” and a “continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt of all time.”

He then went on to slam the “extremely energetic young woman” — a description he used for the foreperson — for “doing a Media Tour revealing, incredibly, the Grand Jury’s inner workings & thoughts.”

He exclaimed that the Grand Jury process isn’t justice, likening it to “an illegal Kangaroo Court” rather than a legitimate investigation.

He then pointed out Atlanta’s murder and violent crime rate, which he claimed “is leading the Nation,” before noting that he only made “TWO PERFECT PHONE CALLS!!!” which he didn’t believe justified the eight-month-long probe.

Trump’s scathing rebuke comes after the Georgia Grand Jury foreperson Emily Kohrs gave several interviews to multiple media outlets.

On CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront,” Kohrs told Kate Bolduan that the likelihood that there would more than a dozen indictments was a “good assumption.”

She elaborated by saying there could be some unexpected names on the list but that the “big names that everyone keeps asking me about” wouldn’t be shocking to see on the list.

She made similar remarks to The New York Times.

When reporters told Kohrs for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Trump had thanked the Grand Jury for his complete “exoneration,” they revealed Kohrs “rolled her eyes” and “burst out laughing.”

Trump’s critics have even criticized Kohrs, Maggie Haberman, contributor for The New York Times, suggested Trump’s lawyers could “argue that [the Georgia Grand Jury probe] is prejudicial in terms of what she is saying.”
