CNN Panel Cringes At Trump Grand Jury Foreperson’s Interview

Posted February 22, 2023 by with 9 comments


At first I thought she was just another funny supporting character from the endless Trump saga, but now it’s looking like her cringe-inducing media tour could be extremely consequential, and she could actually fuck this whole thing up. Via Yahoo:

The foreperson, Emily Kohrs, has been interviewed by several news outlets, including CNN, about the grand jury’s deliberations, offering coy and cryptic hints about who might be indicted.

“Why this person is talking on TV, I do not understand,” [Anderson] Cooper said. “She’s clearly enjoying herself. Is this responsible? She was the foreperson of this grand jury.”

Honig, a former state and federal prosecutor, said that the interviews were a “horrible idea” and that prosecutors were probably wincing watching them, adding that it was “painful” to see Kohrs dropping hints.

“This is a very serious prospect here,” he said. “Indicting any person, you’re talking about potentially taking away that person’s liberty. We’re talking about potentially [indicting] a former president for the first time in this nation’s history. She does not seem to be taking that very seriously.”

Honig, a former assistant U.S. attorney, suggested that Kohrs’ comments could pave the way for Trump’s team to make a motion, should he be indicted, to dismiss the indictment based on grand jury impropriety.
