"The jurors were chosen in what was essentially a process of elimination. They answered a questionnaire probing their background, their political beliefs, their news diet and whether they could be fair and impartial during questioning. One of the people that made the jury said he found Donald Trump fascinating, in part because Trump could walk into a room and had an effect on people, whether good or bad. Nevertheless, that juror said he could be fair and impartial, and would only judge this case based on the evidence presented in court."

"This trial arises from allegations that Donald Trump mischaracterized payments he made to his former lawyer, Michael Cohen. Cohen was involved in what prosecutors say was a hush money scheme to keep porn actor Stormy Daniels quiet about an alleged sexual encounter she says she had with Trump in 2006. Daniels is ready to come forward with those allegations right before the 2016 presidential election. And according to prosecutors, Trump and his allies feared that that would damage his chances to win the race."

STORYLINE:
A jury of 12 people and six alternates has been seated in former President Donald Trump’s hush money trial in New York.

The completion of the jury selection process Friday tees up the trial for opening statements and weeks of testimony in a case charging the Republican ex-president with falsifying business records to suppress stories about his sex life emerging in the final days of the 2016 election.

The jury includes a sales professional, a software engineer, an English teacher and multiple lawyers.

The case centers on $130,000 Trump’s lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen paid to porn actor Stormy Daniels.

Trump faces 34 felony counts of falsifying business records but denies any wrongdoing.
