23 Georgia Grand Jurors In Trump Case Doxed, DA Seeks Protection

At least 23 grand jurors have been doxed in the Fulton County indictment of President Trump and his allies’ alleged attempt to flip Georgia’s election results in 2020, Axios reports. Details such as their names, addresses, ages and vehicle details were posted anonymously on "conspiracy theory websites" hosted by a Russian company as part of an effort to "harass and intimidate them," said Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. She asked a judge on Wednesday to take steps to protect the doxed jurors. She and other members of her office were also doxed, and their personal information was often "intertwined with derogatory and racist remarks," Willis said. The information about her included her family members' names, their dates of birth, home and work addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and "GPS coordinates." The Atlanta Police Department and the Fulton County Sheriff's Office have put in place plans to protect the jurors from harassment and violence.

The Department of Homeland Security said in an affidavit in the filing that the Russian company is known "to be uncooperative with law enforcement," meaning the information cannot be removed from public view. Some of the information about the jurors was incorrect, but DHS said it could be corrected if the court releases personal details about them. Some of the same website users that doxed Willis and the jurors have released information about other district attorneys, judges, federal employees and their family members. Willis asked the court to protect jurors by restricting their appearance throughout the case and access to their identities. She said the state fears that Trump and his allies' right to a fair trial will be violated if their identities became widely known to the public, though she acknowledged that the case has received international attention and that the upcoming trial will likely be "highly-publicized."
