Emily Kohrs, the Georgia grand jury foreperson in the case involving President Donald Trump and alleged efforts to overturn the 2020 election results is causing quite a stir. Some “legal experts” fear that the interview she gave could jeopardize the case. George Conway disagrees.
George Conway, an attorney himself who is well versed in politics as well, thinks that many of these “experts” are overreacting in saying that what she said will, in the long run, have any effect at all. Appearing on Morning Joe, Conway reminded the hosts and viewers that Kohrs really didn’t reveal much of anything. Conway called the interview “comic relief” but did concede it would give the defense “something to shoot at.” Conway believes their efforts will be futile, however.
“It did prepare a report and what she told us, a few little interesting tidbits and hints there, wasn’t all that much in the grand scheme of things,” Conway said. “We could have surmised there were a number of people being indicted, and she said no major plot twists. Well, okay, I don’t expect there to have been any major plot twists, and at the end of the day, you know, when these cases, a grand jury, secrecy is violated it usually doesn’t affect the trial because the trial end of the day is whether or not you prove guilt within a reasonable doubt in the greater case.”
Furthermore, Conway pointed out that this Grand Jury isn’t even the one that will be handing out indictments. For that, a new grand jury will be tasked with that.
“She has to present it to another grand jury, another grand jury has to vote on it, and I don’t think there’s any argument that the defendants have that they were prejudiced by this interview,” Conway said. “She didn’t release that much information. The fact of the matter is most of the evidence, 99 percent of the evidence we know about, we knew about already from the release of the Raffensperger tape and then the Jan. 6 hearings. There’s going to be no argument that the jury, the ultimate of decider of fact, is prejudiced in any way. Just no — there’s just nothing — it’s not going to help the defendants any.”
Time will tell who was correct here. George Conway or the other “legal experts.” Conway has been on the money in the past, even recommending special council appointments back in early 2021 when Joe Biden first took office. He also predicted indictments were coming months ago in the Georgia case as well. In this interview, he updated that prediction and said that he expects indictments within the next two months.
