Majority of Grand Jury Recommends Perjury Charges in Trump Election Probe

A Georgia district attorney on Thursday released some of a special grand jury’s report on efforts by former President Donald Trump and his allies to overturn the 2020 presidential election. The 23 Georgians who served as grand jurors found that there was not “widespread fraud” that could have overturned the presidential election.

“We find by a unanimous vote that no widespread fraud took place in the Georgia 2020 presidential election that could result in overturning that election,” the report said.

However, the report also said that a “majority of the Grand Jury believes that perjury may have been committed by one or more witnesses testifying before it” and recommended that the district attorney seek “appropriate indictments” for crimes where the “evidence is compelling.” The jurors “received evidence from or involving 75 witnesses,” the report said, the “overwhelming majority of which information was delivered in person under oath.”
