In an interview with Charlie Kirk, Gingrich said it is hearsay but that he was told from a reliable source, "Friday evening, somebody from Washington called the district attorney in Atlanta and said, You have to indict on Monday." He added, "We have to cover up all of the mistakes we just made with Weiss."
"She said apparently, my jurors aren't coming back till Tuesday," Gingrich continued. "and they said you didn't hear me. You have to indict on Monday."
"And she said, Well, they're not gonna get here before noon," he said. "They said that doesn't matter."
"She says this means it's going to be eight or nine or 10 o'clock at night," he added, "It doesn't matter. We need the news media shifting."
Kirk asked who made the phone call, but Gingrich said he didn't know, and reiterated that it was hearsay.
Kirk responded, "I totally believe it though." He added, "Because that would explain why they leaked and they messed up on the clerk document. Why she was exhausted and why they had the 11 pm press conference."
DA Willis announced in a late-night press conference that a grand jury had indicted former President Donald Trump and 18 of his associates with charges of violating the Georgia RICO Act, solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer, conspiracy to commit impersonating a public officer, conspiracy to commit forgery in the first degree, conspiracy to commit false statements and writings, conspiracy to commit filing false documents, and filing false documents.
Earlier in the day, charges against Trump and his co-defendants were leaked online before the grand jury voted on them. On Tuesday, Fulton County Clerk Ché Alexander said she accidentally pressed send instead of save, because she was under a lot of pressure to make sure the process went smoothly, and that is how the mistake happened.
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
