Napolitano Tells Newsmax: All Trump Case Jurors Likely Chosen by Friday

Former Judge Andrew Napolitano, speaking on Newsmax’s “National Report,” expressed optimism about the progress of jury selection in Donald Trump’s criminal trial in New York.

As of Wednesday, seven out of the needed 18 jurors have been seated, a pace that Napolitano finds surprisingly efficient. He predicts that the full jury—comprising 12 jurors and six alternates—will be completed by Friday, setting the stage for the trial to commence possibly as early as the following week.

The trial holds an important historical weight as it marks the first criminal trial of a former U.S. president. The jurors selected so far come from diverse professional backgrounds, including an information technology worker, an English teacher, an oncology nurse, a sales professional, a software engineer, and two lawyers.

This varied group hints at a comprehensive approach to assembling a jury capable of impartially assessing the case. Napolitano highlighted the unique aspects of the New York legal system that benefit both the defense and prosecution.

Unlike many other systems where a judge conducts initial juror questioning, in New York, lawyers directly interrogate potential jurors. This method allows both sides to better gauge the impartiality and suitability of jurors for a trial fraught with political and public interest.

The importance of the trial extends beyond legal boundaries into the political arena, especially given its timing within the tightly contested race between Trump and President Joe Biden.

This trial is just one of four criminal cases against Trump, but it is the first to reach trial and may influence public opinion ahead of the elections.

Napolitano emphasized the necessity of selecting jurors who are not only aware of Trump but also capable of setting aside their preconceptions to fairly consider the evidence presented.

This ensures a balanced trial for both the government’s prosecution and Trump’s defense, reflecting the difficulties of administering justice in highly publicized and politically sensitive cases.
