Governor Brian Kemp anticipates being summoned as a witness in Donald Trump’s criminal trial in Fulton County. He is skeptical that the trial will commence before the upcoming presidential election.
Earlier this year, Kemp provided testimony to a special purpose grand jury in Fulton County but has refrained from discussing its details. While addressing a group of conservative supporters in an event hosted by radio personality Erick Erickson, Kemp was cautious. “Regarding the indictment, I can’t divulge much,” Kemp expressed. “I was called for the special grand jury, and I anticipate being a witness in future proceedings.”
Kemp has consistently maintained that the 2020 Georgia election wasn’t tampered with. This stance has often conflicted with Trump’s views over the past few years.
Given his position, it’s possible that Kemp will testify on behalf of the Democratic prosecutor, Fani Willis, a challenging position for a Republican governor who prefers discretion on this matter.
However, Kemp shared his thoughts regarding the timeline of the ex-president’s trial. “From what I see and believe, regardless of the proposed timelines, the trial won’t take place before the election,” he commented.
The trial is proposed to begin in March 2024 by Willis.
It’s worth noting that Trump reached out to Kemp shortly after the 2020 elections. The details of that conversation have remained private, but that might change if Kemp testifies in the trial.
