Fulton County Grand Jury Recommended Charges against Lindsey Graham and Georgia GOP Senators

The special grand jury in Fulton County, that indicted President Donald Trump and 18 others, also recommended charges against Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and two former Georgia GOP senators.

Former Sens. David Perdue (R-GA) and Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) were both targetted along with Graham.

These recommended charges were reviewed in the special counsel grand jury report which was released today.

The grand jury also recommended charges against attorney Cleta Mitchell, Michael Flynn, Lin Wood, and Boris Epshteyn.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis did not charge the lawmakers or the others when she returned an indictment last month.

Thirteen grand jurors voted to recommend indicting Graham, while seven voted no and one abstained.

They voted 17-4 to recommend indicting Perdue and 14-6 for Loeffler.

Legal scholar Jonathan Turley weighed in on the revelations from the report.

Turley described the recommendations as “chilling.”

“The final report for Special Purpose Grand Jury is chilling in recommendations to indict Sen. Graham and former senators Purdue and Loeffler as well as others who engaged in clearly protected political speech,” Turley said.

“While the report exonerates the Fulton County District Attorney’s office, one has to wonder where these members got the idea that it could indict figures like Graham and Purdue for political speech.

“This report has all of the focus and restraint of a drive-by shooting.

“As indicated by the giggling foreperson Emily Kohrs, the report suggests a visceral, if not recreational, impulse in targeting well-known political and legal figures.”
