Will Trump & Allies Finally Face Jail for Election Lies? Georgia Grand Jury Recommends Indictments

The special grand jury in Georgia that is investigating attempts by former President Donald Trump and his allies to overturn the 2020 election has recommended more than a dozen indictments, and the list could include Trump. Emily Kohrs, the foreperson of the grand jury, confirmed the indictments on Tuesday, though it's still unclear if they will include crimes other than perjury. Prosecutors will ultimately decide what charges to bring in the coming days. For more, we speak with The Nation's D.C. bureau chief, Chris Lehmann, who says convictions are still unlikely, given that "the legal system favors heavily entrenched power."
