Georgia Grand Jurors Urged Charging Sen. Graham, Flynn

The special grand jury in the Georgia probe that indicted Donald Trump and 18 others recommended charging Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and two former U.S. senators from Georgia, the Associated Press reports. The report was released preliminarily in February, but a judge delayed the release of any recommendations for specific charges against specific people until after last month’s indictment. The special grand jury recommended charging many people who were not ultimately indicted. They include Graham, former Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, and former national security adviser Michael Flynn.


The panel spent seven months hearing from some 75 witnesses before completing a report in December with recommendations for Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis on charges related to attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. Many of those indicted — including former New York mayor and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows — are known to have testified before the special grand jury. The parts of the report previously released in February included its introduction and conclusion, as well as a section in which the grand jurors expressed concerns that one or more witnesses may have lied under oath and urged prosecutors to seek charges for perjury.
