Georgia Grand Jury Report On Trump Election Investigation

Filed under: General — Dana @ 5:12 pm

Have to dash, so just going to pop this here. This is from the opening of the report:

The Grand Jury heard extensive testimony on the subject of alleged election fraud from poll workers, investigators, technical experts, and State of Georgia employees and officials, as well as from persons still claiming that such fraud took place We find by unanimous vote that no widespread fraud took place in the Georgia 2020 presidential election that could result’1n overturning that election.

Per Andy McCarthy:

Finally, in the report’s conclusion, this seems to be the most important assertion — a caveat rather than a finding:

If this report fails to include any potential violations of referenced statutes that were shown in the investigation, we acknowledge the discretion of the District Attorney to seek indictments where she finds sufficient cause.

The grand jurors elaborate that they are not “election law experts or criminal lawyers.” If I were a target or subject of the investigation, this excerpt would concern me. We’re reading tea leaves here, but my interpretation is that the grand jury not only found what it believes to be crimes, but is also sufficiently offended by what it heard that it is worried there may be additional crimes that it failed to detect so that it could recommend even more charges than it has.

Trump:

Thank you to the Special Grand Jury in the Great State of Georgia for your Patriotism & Courage. Total exoneration. The USA is very proud of you!!!
