The Fulton County special grand jury made recommendations to charge additional individuals, including South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, former Georgia Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, and former Trump official Michael Flynn.
These recommendations stem from the investigation into alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in Georgia. The panel’s final report was released on Friday.
“The Fulton County special grand jury recommended charging additional individuals including Sen. Lindsey Graham; former Georgia Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, as well as former Trump official Michael Flynn, out of its investigation into alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in the state,” the panel’s final report stated.
A Fulton County judge disclosed the grand jury’s final report on former President Trump and his associates’ alleged endeavors to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in Georgia. The report revealed that grand jurors recommended charges against 39 individuals. This number contrasts with the 19 who faced charges, a list that includes former Trump.
Fulton County Superior Court Judge Robert McBurney had previously ordered a partial release of the special grand jury’s report in February. However, he refrained from releasing its recommendations on potential prosecutions. McBurney expressed his intention to safeguard individuals’ due process rights.
“That partial report indicated a majority of the grand jury believed one or more witnesses may have committed perjury in their testimony and recommends that prosecutors pursue indictments against them, if the district attorney finds the evidence compelling,” the report revealed.
The Trump campaign, at that time, vehemently criticized the report.
“It had nothing to do with the president because President Trump did absolutely nothing wrong,” the Trump campaign declared.
Subsequent events saw Trump and 18 others indicted by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. Trump faced multiple charges, including one count of violation of the Georgia RICO Act, three counts of criminal solicitation, six counts of criminal conspiracy, one count of filing false documents and two counts of making false statements. Trump’s response was a plea of not guilty to all charges.
The list of those charged also featured former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows and former Trump attorneys Rudy Giuliani, John Eastman, Sidney Powell and Jenna Ellis. Each defendant faced at least one count of violating the Georgia RICO Act.
A spokesperson for the Trump campaign, responding to the report, conveyed their perspective in a statement to Fox News.
“Democrat Partisan Fani Willis and her unlawfully constructed, politically motivated, so-called ‘Special Grand Jury’ have now been completely exposed as operatives and tools of the radical Democrats that they are,” the spokesperson asserted.
The spokesperson further emphasized the perceived bias in the proceedings.
“In a clearly biased, un-American act, a majority of the ‘Special Grand Jurors’ voted to indict dozens of innocent individuals, including former and sitting United States Senators, simply for raising concerns about election integrity and exercising their First Amendment Rights under the Constitution,” the Trump campaign spokesperson emphasized.
