ATLANTA (AP) – Former President Donald Trump’s lawyers in Georgia are criticizing the Fulton County investigation into potential illegal election meddling after the foreperson of the special grand jury helping the probe went public.

Trump attorneys Drew Findling and Jennifer Little say they kept quiet until now out of respect for the process. But they tell The Associated Press that comments by special grand jury foreperson Emily Kohrs in media interviews seemed to implicate Trump.

And they insist he has broken no laws. However, Kohrs hasn’t publicly named Trump in response to questions about unidentified people the grand jury recommended for possible indictment.

Trump himself has denounced the investigation as a “witch hunt.”
