The Completion of Jury Selection in Trump’s Hush Money Trial

After a thorough screening process, a diverse group of 12 jurors and six alternates was selected on Friday to hear the historic case against former US President Donald Trump.

This marks the first time a former US president will face a criminal trial. Trump is accused of falsifying business records to conceal a hush money deal with adult film actress Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 election, which he denies.

The jury selection process took four days, complicated by Trump’s controversial political reputation, deep ties to New York City, and extensive media coverage. Around 100 prospective jurors excused themselves initially, citing concerns about impartiality.

Others were dismissed due to their knowledge of Trump or his contributions to the city, while some were struck from the list due to their social media posts about the former president.

The selected jurors come from various Manhattan neighborhoods, including Harlem and Chelsea, and have diverse professional backgrounds, such as physical therapists and investment bankers.

Some are immigrants, while others are lifelong New Yorkers. After being seated, the jurors were sworn in and ordered to return on Monday, when opening statements are expected to begin. To secure a conviction, prosecutors must prove that Trump falsified business records with the intent to defraud and commit or further another crime.

They will argue that the hush money payment to Daniels was part of a broader “catch-and-kill” scheme to suppress negative gossip about Trump ahead of the election. Trump has pleaded not guilty and denies the allegations. The trial begins on Monday, with witness testimony to follow shortly after.
