A Fulton County, Georgia, grand jury’s assessment of those implicated in electoral meddling after the 2020 presidential campaign includes recommendations for charges against a larger swath of former President Donald Trump’s friends, including three U.S. senators. The full report, which was made public despite Trump’s attempts to prevent its release, describes the recommendations that a 22-member jury panel that was in charge of evaluating the case’s evidence issued in May.

Suggestioned Indictments:

Notable individuals included in the suggested indictments include Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), Lieutenant Governor Burt Jones of Georgia, and two former senators from Georgia, David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, who ran for reelection in 2020. Parts of the study are similar to the indictment filed by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis in August, when she indicted Trump and eighteen other defendants.

There are notable exceptions, though, such as the suggestion to charge former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and lawyer Cleta Mitchell, who supports Trump but was left off of the August indictment. Despite not being indicted by Willis, veteran Trump advisor Boris Epshteyn was also recommended for charges by the grand jury.

Not All-Agreeable Suggestions:

The report shows that there was disagreement over many of the suggested indictments, especially when deciding what charges should be brought against the phony electors. There were suggested charges against Flynn and the senators “with respect to the national effort to overturn the 2020 presidential election.”

Thirteen grand jurors recommended Senator Graham’s indictment, seven voted against it, and one did not cast a vote. The vote in support of indicting Senator Purdue was 17–4, and the vote in favor of Senator Loeffler was 14-6. Overall, Perdue was voted in favor 16–1, mostly as a result of his frequent and tenacious correspondence with Georgia authorities and staff from November 2020 to January 2021.

Only after court orders—including a lawsuit that went all the way to the Supreme Court—was Senator Graham asked to testify before the grand jury.

Charges Associated with Trump’s Request:

The study also suggests charging those involved in the contentious phone conversation between Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and President Trump, during which the latter requested that Trump “find 11,780 votes” in Georgia; the latter declined. Charges were brought against Trump and former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows in relation to this conversation.

On four counts connected to the call, the 18 grand jurors recommended Cleta Mitchell’s indictment. On two further potential accusations against Mitchell, the jurors were divided.

It was also suggested that Trump’s attorneys, Kurt Hilbert and Alex Kaufman, who were present on the call, be charged with a crime.

Participation of Pro-Trump Individuals:

Indictments were also suggested for a number of those who supported Trump’s baseless allegations of election fraud among Georgian state lawmakers. This includes Georgia state Senator William Ligon, who requested a special session in response to allegations of fraudulent activities, and Jacki Pick, an attorney who purportedly showed lawmakers a video of illegal ballot counting.
