'The View' Urges Georgia Grand Jury Forewoman to Keep 'Big Bazoo Shut'
“The View” co-hosts are urging Emily Kohrs, the forewoman of a Georgia grand jury, to stop talking to the media.
Co-host Joy Behar asked on Wednesday, “Shouldn’t she be keeping her big bazoo shut?”
“She wants attention … Everybody wants attention, and that’s what this is about, I think. But I think that she could destroy this case,” she added.
Meanwhile, Sunny Hostin noted she was “thoroughly enjoying the interviews” and “cracking up.”
However, she added, “When I put my federal prosecutor hat on, I was like, ‘Oh no! She’s compromising the integrity of the investigation!'”

Hostin noted grand jury investigations are supposed to be secret proceedings.
“I know that the judge gave them guidelines and said like don’t name names,” she continued. “But if you’re like, ‘Ha! It’s about 60-something people, we heard Trump’s name a lot!’ You know what’s happening.”
She added, “It’s attacking the credibility of the investigation.”
On Monday, Kohrs gave several interviews. She discussed a grand jury related to Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis’ investigation into former President Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election in Georgia.
And it is fair to say the move was ill-advised. She appeared to be reveling in the recommendation of charges. At one point, she spoke whimsically about how she wanted to subpoena Trump because it would have been “really cool” and an “awesome moment” to swear him in.
People shouldn’t be laughing at this. The left is taking over the criminal Justice system the same way they’ve overtaken every other American institution. These people are mentally deranged, sociopathic, and completely corrupt. These are America’s juries.pic.twitter.com/befbSCnBE6

Can you blame CNN and other networks for inviting Kohrs to discuss the potential indictments? She dropped hints that the grand jury recommended an indictment against Trump. And it made for some entertaining television.
However, if you are a prosecutor who believed there was a solid case, you must be feeling a pit in your stomach after these interviews.
Kohrs gave off the impression she, and potentially the rest of the grand jury, did not fully consider the weight of their work. And worse, it could raise questions about whether the jury wanted to indict him.
Her interviews could prove to be a massive blow to some as the Georgia case was considered a serious legal threat to the former president.
And CNN legal analyst Elie Honig predicted on Tuesday her comments could give Trump’s legal team grounds to try to get any potential indictment thrown out.
If prosecutors decide to go forward with indictments, they will have Kohrs’ interviews hanging over their work and causing questions about the fairness and integrity of the process.
