The Grand Juror Who Gave Away the Game

Emily Kohrs is “a prosecutor’s nightmare,” fretted a CNN analyst — because she reveals the weak case against Donald Trump.

“And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for you meddling kids!” That variation of the famously repeated line from the old Scooby-Doo cartoon kept coming to mind while watching media coverage of that crazed grand jury forewoman down in Georgia. They would’ve gotten Donald Trump if it weren’t for that meddling juror!

Emily Kohrs is the forewoman of the Special Purpose Grand Jury evaluating Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’s investigation into “any coordinated attempts to unlawfully alter the outcome of the 2020 elections in [Georgia].” Kohrs, age 30, has never voted, is currently unemployed, and her personal proclivities are … shall we say, intriguing. (More on that at the end.) Yet after the grand jury submitted its report, she saw fit to do a series of bizarre media interviews that could very well spoil its findings.

The point here, however, is that Kohrs didn’t really ruin anything. The case was junk from the beginning — an Ahab-like quest by a partisan Democrat DA to get the great whale Moby Trump. It’s notoriously easy to get a grand jury to indict, and yet maybe this weak case was in trouble.

So, the question we have is whether Kohrs’s silly babble on cable news was spontaneous or a deliberate charade to deflect from the pathetic failure of a Trump-deranged Democrat DA.

Last year, Willis declared that “a central focus” of her investigation “is former President Donald Trump’s January 2, 2021, telephone call to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger requesting that the Secretary ‘find 11,780 votes’ in the former President’s favor.” She knew “on day one” that the phone call merited an investigation, though she swears she had no “predetermined opinions” about it.

Trump’s infamous call was far from “perfect” as he has repeatedly insisted, but neither did he say what Democrats want you to think he said. He did not cajole Raffensperger to rig the election by concocting 11,780 votes for him; he was convinced that Democrats had cheated to win with more than 11,780 illegal votes for Joe Biden and that Raffensperger simply needed to ferret out those illegitimate votes.

That’s a YUGE difference, and the partisan Willis and the dishonest media know it.

By the way, the judge who authorized Willis’s grand jury is the same judge — Fulton County Superior Court Judge Christopher Brasher — who Trump told Raffensperger was “not acting on our petition” over the contested election. Gee, how about that?

As for the Special Purpose Grand Jury’s findings relevant to 2020, its report said:

The Grand Jury heard extensive testimony on the subject of alleged election fraud from poll workers, investigators, technical experts, and State of Georgia employees and officials, as well as from persons still claiming that such fraud took place. 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.

That was, of course, based on information fed to them by Democrat DA Fani Willis. As investigative journalist Margot Cleveland put it: “Garbage in. Garbage out.”

Last week, thanks to other released portions from that grand jury report, the Leftmedia was salivating over the jury’s statement that “perjury may have been committed by one or more witnesses testifying before it.” Even if that’s true, it could mean there’s no underlying crime, only a process crime during the investigation. If that’s what happened, which isn’t certain.

Now, back to Kohrs. Her eager hints, knowing smirks, and telling giggles are certainly problematic. For example, after being told that Trump had claimed “total exoneration” by the grand jury, Kohrs responded by rolling her eyes and bursting into laughter. “Did he really say that? Oh, that’s fantastic. That’s phenomenal. I love it.”

She also really wanted Trump under oath. “I kind of wanted to subpoena the former president because I got to swear everybody in,” she gushed. “And so I thought it’d be really cool to get 60 seconds with President Trump, of me looking at him and being like, ‘Do you solemnly swear…’ And me getting to swear him in.” Speaking of swearing in, she says she did so with one witness while holding ice cream from a social at the district attorney’s office. Insert facepalm here.

Kohrs alluded to what media figures would expect to see happen from this probe: “I don’t think that there are any giant plot twists coming.”

Who’s in trouble? “It’s not a short list,” she teased, tee hee. “There may be some names on that list that you wouldn’t expect. But the big name that everyone keeps asking me about — I don’t think you will be shocked.”

Some in the media were fit to be tied over her interviews. “First of all, why this person is talking on TV I do not understand,” huffed CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “The View’s” Joy Behar added, “Shouldn’t she be keeping her big bazoo shut?”

She’s possibly jeopardizing “perhaps the most legally perilous investigation of a former president in American history,” marveled MSNBC’s Alex Wagner.

She’s “a prosecutor’s nightmare,” lamented CNN analyst Elie Honig, a former U.S. attorney. “She’s not supposed to be talking about anything, really, but she’s really not supposed to be talking about the deliberations,” Honig added. “I think she’s potentially crossing a line here. It’s going to be a real problem for prosecutors.”

Well, then why did CNN, MSBNC, and three other media outlets book Kohrs for interviews?

Again, though, remember the bigger point: The DA had a lousy case before anyone knew the name Emily Kohrs.

See why we thought of Scooby-Doo? Cooper, Behar, Wagner, and the rest want so badly to get Trump they can practically taste it. Yet their networks couldn’t resist the opportunity to get an inside scoop about a possible indictment. And they would’ve gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for that Pinterest wiccan grand jury forewoman.

That’s right, Kohrs’s personal interests seem to include a fascination with paganism and witchcraft. Maybe Donald Trump has been more right than he ever knew, and an actual witch is hunting for him. To quote her again: “Oh, that’s fantastic. That’s phenomenal. I love it.”
