ATLANTA — The Georgia grand jury that probed possible interference in the 2020 election by Donald Trump and his associates has recommended indictments against more than a dozen people, the jury foreperson said Tuesday — a list she said “may is” that includes former Pres.
Emily Kohrs said in an interview, “There are definitely names you’ll recognize, yes. There are also names you might not recognize.”

She said the list of recommended impeachments is “not a short list.”
“Surely you’re expecting some names,” she said, declining to name any specifics per instructions from the judge presiding over the grand jury.
He added, “I don’t think there’s a big plot twist coming. I don’t think there’s a big plot ‘the way I expected it to be at all the moments. ‘” “I wouldn’t expect you to be shocked.”
Asked if Trump was also involved, Kohrs said, “Potentially. It could be.”
The panel convened in May 2022, and was officially disbanded last month after presenting its recommendations to Fulton County District Attorney Fannie Willis’ office.
Excerpts from the grand jury report were made public last week, and revealed that the panel had interviewed 75 witnesses and recommended perjury charges against “one or more witnesses” who testified before it. Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney ordered those names be kept under wraps while the DA decides whether to seek charges.
Kohrs told NBC that the panel thought one or possibly two witnesses may have misled the grand jury.
