GA Grand Jury Names Released
“It’s becoming all too commonplace to see everyday citizens performing necessary functions for our democracy being targeted with violent threats by Trump-supporting extremists," Advance Democracy founder and former FBI investigator Daniel J. Jones told NBC. "The lack of political leadership on the right to denounce these threats — which serve to inspire real-world political violence — is shameful.”
Advance Democracy noted that supporters of Trump were also posting images of the jurors on other social media websites, attacking them for allegedly supporting prominent Democrats such as Bernie Sanders and Barrack Obama, as well as the Black Lives Matter movement.
On Tuesday, the former president posted on his Truth Social account that law enforcement were going "after those that fought to find the RIGGERS!" Advance Democracy reported that Trump supporters are now "using the term ‘rigger’ in lieu of a racial slur."
The Fulton County District Attorney's office has not yet commented on the doxing, but District Attorney Fani Willis has also been the subject of racial abuse and threats. The Fulton County Sheriff's Office said in a statement Thursday that they are "aware that personal information of members of the Fulton County Grand Jury is being shared on various platforms."
"As the lead agency, our investigators are working closely with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies to track down the origin of threats in Fulton County and other jurisdictions," it reads. "We take this matter very seriously and are coordinating with our law enforcement partners to respond quickly to any credible threat and to ensure the safety of those individuals who carried out their civic duty."
An arrest warrant has been issued for Trump and the other defendants in the case, who have until August 25 to surrender themselves to the Fulton County Sheriff's Office voluntarily.
