When the court picks a foreman for a grand jury, it is reasonable to assume that it would want somebody who is calm, deliberate, and of sound mind — a person who does not want the limelight and instead will carry out their duties responsibly with utmost discretion.

That being said, there is no kind way to put this: The foreman chosen in Georgia’s 2020 election interference case is batty as hell and the worst possible pick for that role.

Emily Kohrs, the woman in question, has an apparent need for attention and delights in divulging key details about her experience on the grand jury. She has been on a media blitz over the past 48 hours and has every leftist across the country fretting that she has thrown a pending indictment for Trump into jeopardy — and for good reason.

Kohrs spent her Tuesday evening giggling up a storm on CNN. While she avoided naming who exactly could be recommended for indictment, she seems to have provided more information than would be considered legally prudent. It must be seen to be believed:

“Can you imagine doing this for eight months and not coming out with a whole list?” Kohrs told the news network. “It’s not a short list. It’s not,” she said of the recommendations.

She wasn’t done yet — not even close.

“There may be some names on that list that you wouldn’t expect,” she said at one point in her interview. “But the big name that everyone keeps asking me about — I don’t think you will be shocked.”

Obviously, she is talking about Trump.

Her words alone aren’t the best look, but her expressions and tone with which she said them really paint an odd picture.

“Personally, I hope to see her take almost any kind of decisive action, to actually do something,” Kohrs also said of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, who will ultimately decide whether or not to bring charges based on the jury’s recommendations. “There are too many times in recent history that seem to me like someone has gotten called out for something that people had a problem with, and nothing ever happens.”

CNN’s Anderson Cooper was as befuddled as anybody by this media appearance.

“First of all why this person is talking on TV, I do not understand,” Cooper asked former federal prosecutor Elie Honig. “Because, she’s clearly enjoying herself, but I mean, is this responsible? She was the foreperson of this grand jury!”

“This is a horrible idea, and I guarantee you that prosecutors are wincing, watching her go on this,” Honig responded.

“I was wincing just watching her eagerness to like, hint at stuff,” Cooper interjected.

“It’s painful in that respect. That’s a very serious prospect here,” the attorney noted. “We’re talking about — indicting any person, you’re talking about potentially taking away that person’s liberty — we’re talking about the potentially former president for the first time in this nation of history. She does not seem to be taking that very seriously.”

Honig also predicted that her entire schpiel would be the ultimate gift to Trump’s legal team.

“It’s a prosecutor’s nightmare,” he said. “Mark my words, Donald Trump’s team is going to make a motion if there’s an indictment to dismiss that indictment based on grand jury impropriety.”

An exasperated Honig continued, “She’s not supposed to be talking about anything, really. … She’s talking about what specific witnesses they saw, what the grand jury thought of them. She says some of them we found credible, some of them we found funny. I don’t know why that’s relevant, but she’s been saying we found this guy funny or interesting. I think she’s potentially crossing a line here. It’s gonna be a real problem for prosecutors.”

Other commentators felt the same way.

“Shouldn’t she be keeping her big bazoo shut?!” “The View’s” Joy Behar said on Wednesday. “Everybody wants attention. That’s what this is about, but I think she could destroy the case.”

Her colleague Sunny Hostin added that she seems “excitable” and that others would call her “unhinged.”

That might be the only time that the ladies of “The View” have ever had a correct political observation.

As popular Twitter user and attorney @AGHamilton29, tweeted, “This is insanely irresponsible. This person is coming off as someone seeking their 15 minutes of fame, which will clearly undermine any recommendations the grand jury made.”

“This is a very serious situation and this is clearly not a person that should have been trusted with managing it,” he added while tweeting a portion of another media hit from Kohrs.

Now, here is the ultimate kicker. Her alleged Pinterest shows that she is into witchcraft and paganism:

So, in many ways, it seems this could be an actual witch hunt against the former president. You can’t make this up.
