What we know so far about the 7 jurors selected for Trump’s ‘hush money’ trial


Seven New Yorkers have so far been picked to serve as jurors on former President Trump’s hush money trial, the first criminal case of any U.S. president in history.

There will be a total of 12 jurors picked, with at least six alternates to serve on the trial, which is expected to last six to eight weeks.

Six jurors have been selected so far for Donald Trump’s high-profile “hush money” trial.

Here are some small nuggets on the jurors.

  • The foreperson — or leader of the jury — is married, lives in West Harlem, works in sales and is originally from Ireland.
  • Another juror is a young black woman who has friends with opinions about Trump, but said she’s not a political person. She said that she respected that Trump “always speaks his mind.”
  • An Oregon native who works as a corporate lawyer at Gunderson Dettmer. He said they enjoy hiking and running. He has lived in Chelsea for five years.
  • A female software engineer who lives in Chelsea.
  • A 40-year-old, Lower East Side resident who said he found Trump “fascinating and mysterious.”
    “He walks into a room and he sets people off one way or another,” the juror said, who works as an IT consultant. “I find that really interesting. Really, this one guy can do all of this. Wow, that’s what I think.”
  • A female oncology nurse at Memorial Sloan Kettering who lives on the Upper East Side.
  • A civil litigator who lives on the Upper East Side. He told the court that he enjoys reading The Post and other outlets. He indicated he would be able to serve fairly and impartially.

The trial originally began on Monday with screening for potential jurors — but 50 were dismissed after saying they couldn’t be fair or impartial.

Jury selection has resumed with a fresh panel of jurors to fill in the remaining seats.
