Inside the Trump grand jury that probed election meddling

February 22, 2023

For Emily Kohrs, these were the moments last May when she realized she wasn’t participating in just any grand jury . She would become foreperson of the special grand jury selected to investigate whether then-President Donald Trump and his Republican associates illegally meddled in Georgia’s 2020 presidential election. ADVERTISEMENTAt least one person who resisted answering questions became much more cooperative when prosecutors offered him immunity in front of the jurors, Kohrs said. Kohrs didn’t vote in 2020 and was only vaguely aware of controversy swirling in the wake of the election. Prosecutors, Kohrs said, told jurors they could consume news coverage related to the case but urged them to keep an open mind.
