Trump's Criminal Trial Faces Jury Selection Hurdles Due to Polarizing Nature

  • last month
The selection of an impartial jury for Trump's criminal trial in New York is expected to be challenging and lengthy due to his high-profile and polarizing nature, involving detailed vetting of potential jurors' media habits and political opinions. Trump and his legal team will want jurors open to the possibility of a hung jury or acquittal while prosecutors want impartial fact-finders. Trump took interest in jurors during his previous defamation trial and his behavior could impact the new jury's views either positively or negatively.
