The 12 members of the Trump trial jury selected

NY. The twelve members who will make up the jury that will seal the fate of Donald Trump in the historic trial that sees the former US president in the dock in New York were selected, the investigating judge of the case announced this Thursday, who will still select six substitutes.

“I have hope” that the process will end this Friday, said the investigating judge, Juan Merchan, after the shock caused by the withdrawal of two of the first seven members selected on Tuesday.

The jury, who has been sworn in court promising to act in a “fair and impartial manner,” is made up of seven men and five women. However, the selection of the six substitutes is still missing, as stated by the cadena NBC News.

The election has been completed after seven of the twelve members were chosen on Tuesday, although two of these jurors have been dismissed and another two have subsequently been chosen amid objections from the Trump team, which has placed obstacles in the candidates and has examined them one by one to ensure that their political positions do not interfere with the process.

The Prosecutor’s Office accuses Trump of 34 crimes for alleged document falsification, within a plot with which he would have tried to hide the payment of 130 thousand dollars to Stormy Daniels to buy her silence and not talk about an alleged extramarital relationship before the elections in 2016. The tycoon justified this payment as part of his legal expenses.

The former president’s lawyers tried in vain to postpone the start of this trial, the first of several that Trump has pending. The former president faces a federal case against him for trying to overturn the result of the 2020 elections, in which the current president, Joe Biden, won.
