‘All I Did Is Make TWO PERFECT PHONE CALLS!!!’: Trump Loses It Over Georgia Grand Jury Forewoman Comments
Donald Trump on Wednesday slammed the forewoman of the Georgia grand jury investigating his efforts to interfere with the 2020 election results in the state over her “revealing” insights into the grand jury’s recommendations this week, insisting that he did nothing wrong, but placing a two “perfect” phone calls to Georgia’s Secretary of State to help him overturn the election results.
“This Georgia case is ridiculous, a strictly political continuation of the greatest Witch Hunt of all time,” Trump posted 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,” he complained. “Atlanta is leading the Nation in Murder and other Violent Crimes. All I did is make TWO PERFECT PHONE CALLS!!!”
Trump’s rant comes after forewoman Emily Kohrs’s interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Wednesday.
During that interview, reporters told Kohrs that Trump had thanked the grand jury on Truth Social, implying in the post that he had been given “total exoneration.” After hearing that from the reporters, she “rolled her eyes” and “burst out laughing,” according to the report.
Kohrs has been interviewed by multiple media outlets to offer insight into the grand jury’s report, which was partially released last week. She told CNN’s Kate Bolduan on “Erin Burnett OutFront” that it would be a “good assumption” that more than a dozen people will be indicted as a result of the investigation.
“There may be some names on that list that you wouldn’t expect. But the big name that everyone keeps asking me about — I don’t think you will be shocked,” Kohrs said.
Kohrs also told The New York Times that “it is not a short list,” but declined to name those recommended for indictment.
New York Times correspondent Maggie Haberman, who has frequently covered Trump over the years, critiqued Kohrs’s media appearances, saying on CNN’s “This Morning” on Wednesday that the interviews are “not helpful” for Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D), who led the investigation.
“I’ve covered courts on and off for the last 20 years, more than that. I’ve never heard of a grand jury foreperson speaking this way,” Haberman said. “Now, this is a fact-finding grand jury. This is not a charging grand jury. But even still, I’ve never seen anything like it.”
