A grand jury in Georgia has recommended multiple indictments in the investigation into former President Donald Trump, according to the forewoman of the jury.
The grand jury, which was assembled to look into possible election meddling by the Trump administration, has been working for months to determine if any criminal charges should be filed.
The jury heard testimony from a range of witnesses and reviewed a large number of documents in its investigation. According to reports, the jury recommended a range of charges that could include obstruction of justice, conspiracy, and perjury.
It is now up to the U.S. Attorney’s office to decide whether to pursue any of the charges. The decision could have major implications for Trump and his associates, as well as for the future of the Republican Party.
Meanwhile, the pardon of former President Richard Nixon by President Gerald Ford in 1974 has been cited as a possible precedent for Trump. However, legal experts say that the two cases are not necessarily analogous, and that the Ford-Nixon pardon does not necessarily mean that Trump would receive a similar outcome.
The case is sure to be closely watched in the coming months, as the U.S. Attorney’s office makes its decision on whether to pursue any of the charges recommended by the grand jury.
