It’s a marvel of the American judicial system that Emily Kohrs, a 30-year-old woman who has described herself as between customer service jobs and who said she didn’t vote in the 2020 presidential election, could play a pivotal role in the potential indictment of a former US president.

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves and so, too, may be Kohrs, the foreperson of the special grand jury empaneled from May 2022 through January 2023 to help Fulton County, Georgia, prosecutors investigate Donald Trump.

It’s important to note that Trump has NOT been indicted, and it’s not clear he ever will be. He denies all wrongdoing.

Fani Willis, the Fulton County district attorney who conducted the sweeping investigation in which Kohrs played a role, is still considering what, if any, charges should be brought against Trump or anyone else for trying to overturn the election in 2020. Prosecutors will make that decision – not the special grand jury on which Kohrs served and that heard from witnesses and prepared a report and recommendations.
