Live Coverage: Trump’s First Trial

Prosecutors could outline questions for ex-president as jury selection nears end in hush money case

Twelve jurors were seated yesterday, leaving only the selection of alternate jurors ahead of a planned hearing on the scope of the prosecution’s cross-examination should Trump testify.

Yesterday, state Judge Juan Merchan swore in 12 jurors after dismissing two who were already selected after they raised concerns about personal information that was made public.

Jury selection will continue — and could conclude — today in Trump‘s historic New York criminal trial.

With a full 12-person jury and one alternate juror sworn in yesterday, Merchan has called a pool of 96 potential jurors to his Manhattan courtroom in hope of finding five more alternate jurors for the first trial of a former president, which is expected to last roughly six weeks.

Also today, Merchan is expected to hold what’s known as a Sandoval hearing, a type of hearing designed to let defendants know the scope of questions they could face from prosecutors on cross-examination so they can make informed decisions about whether to take the witness stand in their own defense.

We will post updates as we get them but, you, are viewers are welcomed and encouraged to do the same. Please make sure they are credible and from credible sources. You can also share how RW media (shitholes) have chosen to cover/spin this event for a few laughs, eyerolls, or faceplants.
