The Georgia grand jury investigating possible interference in the 2020 election by former President Donald Trump and his allies revealed it had recommended more than a dozen people, which the foreperson suggested may include former President Donald Trump.

In an interview with NBC’s “Nightly News,” the Grand Jurys’s foreperson, Emily Kohrs, explained that “There are certainly names that you will recognize,” in addition to unrecognizable names.

Kohrs went on to suggest the list wasn’t “a short list,” adding that there were some expected names but declined to divulge the names to comply with instructions from the judge presiding over the grand jury.

She explained that there wouldn’t be any “plot twists coming,” adding that she didn’t expect anyone to be shocked by the indictments.

When asked whether the list included Trump, Kohrs revealed that it was a possibility.

Kohrs remarks come a month after the Grand Jury dissolved after submitting recommendations to Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ office.

The Grand Jury was convened in May and interviewed 75 witnesses during its eight-month probe.

A preview of the report released last month also revealed that the Grand Jury had recommended pursuing perjury charges “against one or more witnesses,” prompting media speculation about who the witness might be.

Kohrs confirmed that there were one or two witnesses who hadn’t been entirely truthful but confirmed that Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) — who fought the subpoena — struck her as “honest.”

After his obstruction to the subpoena failed, Graham was forced to testify. But Kohrs insisted the South Carolina Republican was “personable… [and] forthcoming,” adding, “he was very willing to just have a conversation.”
