Trump Grand Jury Foreman is into 'Green Witchcraft' & Even CNN Admits She's a 'Prosecutor’s Nightmare'.
Emily Kohrs appeared corporate media this week, teasing an indictment of the 45th President of the United States.
Emily Kohrs — the grand jury foreman — appeared on major corporate media networks this week to tease a possible indictment of President Donald J. Trump in the Georgia election case. While telling the Associated Press she was not part of any particular political party, she also remarked, “If I chose a political party, it would be the not-crazy party.”
So it’s worth figuring out what “not-crazy” means like to someone like Kohrs, who also fawned over Cassidy Hutchinson, the anti-Trump former White House aide who recently admitted lying about her ludicrous tale of Trump lunging into the driver’s seat in the Presidential limousine before attacking a Secret Service agent.
We all still want to see that re-enactment, though.
Keep reading for free, but help support my writing by dropping me your e-mail address:
If you haven’t yet watched Kohrs, here’s an indicative clip from Tuesday night.
Kohrs also spoke with CNN’s Kate Bolduan, and MSNBC’s Ally Wagner, in interviews that even Anderson Cooper, the Huffington Post, and Yahoo! News openly “cringed” and “winced” over (their words, not mine).
COOPER: First of all why this person is talking on TV, I do not understand. Because, she’s clearly enjoying herself, but I mean, is this responsible? She was the foreperson of this grand jury!
HONIG: This is a horrible idea And I guarantee you that prosecutors are wincing, watching her go on this–
COOPER: I was wincing just watching her eagerness to like, hint at stuff.
A snapshot of Kohrs’s Pinterest activity, however, may provide a hint of what she considers to be crazy, or “not-crazy”. Let’s start with the folder labelled “magic,’ I suppose. And hat-tip to “SomeB1tchIKnow” on Twitter, whose online digging first revealed much of what follows:
Ms. Kohrs appears to be preoccupied with things related to astrology and crystals. So what, right? Plenty of people are. Maybe you are. Well, if that’s where it ended, I’d be getting a massage instead of sitting at this uncomfortable desk.
Amongst her other, relatively normal Pinterest saves are a few strange folders showing she might just be into some, uh, stranger things.
Kohrs has saved posts about witchery, sorcery, spell timings, poisonous herbs, superstitions, and psychic abilities. Now, I get. There are plenty of people out there who believe in some or all of this stuff. A full 27 percent of Americans. A full 25 percent of people in the South. A full 32 percent of women under 44. So there’s quite a high likelihood of someone like Kohrs (or you?) becoming a critical part of such a grand jury.
But at the same time, the same recent study revealed that 39 percent of Americans would be less likely to vote for a candidate who is interested in astrology, while just 7 percent of people said it would make them more likely.
In politics, at least, it’s pretty clear this is an undesirable trait.
And if it’s an undesirable trait in electoral politics, how can it be a desirable (or even neutral) trait in a grand jury investigation with major political ramifications?
The left is consistently raising questions about people with avowed Christian convictions, and their suitability for positions of power. And that’s in a country where nearly two-thirds identify as Christian, where the currency bears the words, “In God We Trust,” and where until extremely recently, it would be odd to not find a Bible in every hotel room or household.
And if you perhaps have some interest overlap with Ms. Kohrs, and/or fancy that I’m being a little harsh in my judgment over such things, I invite you to watch some more of her behavior on national television last night:
Religious freedom is a non-negotiable part of the U.S. political settlement, as are fair trials by juries of your peers. I just can’t help but wonder: we all laughed along about the QAnon Shaman (who was a climate change activist), so how could we take Emily Kohrs – who has been handed a significant amount of power – seriously?
As Elie Honig told Anderson Cooper last night: “It’s a prosecutor’s nightmare.”
