Seven jurors have been selected for Donald Trump’s hush-money case in New York. Here is what we know about them so far:

Juror 1—B400—Male

The foreperson, Juror No. 1, is a middle-aged salesman who lives in West Harlem in upper Manhattan and is originally from Ireland.

His news sources are politically mixed: he gets his news from the Daily Mail, the New York Times, Fox News, and MSNBC.

In his spare time, he does “anything outdoorsy,” according to his replies during jury selection.

Juror 2—B280—Female

Juror No. 2’s media choices seem more liberal than Juror No. 1—she gets her news from the New York Times, CNN, Google, and Facebook. She is an oncology nurse at a cancer center who lives with her fiancé and her hobbies include walking her dogs.

When she was called for jury duty, she had no idea that she could end up on the Trump jury. “I didn’t know I was walking into this,” she told lawyers during jury selection on Tuesday.

Juror 3—B381—Male

Juror 3 is originally from Oregon and moved to New York five years ago. He is a lawyer and has worked at two corporate law firms in New York. He gets his news from the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and Google. His hobbies include hiking and running.

He was chosen after showing that he was not very familiar with the case. “I am actually not super-familiar with the other charge. I don’t really follow the news that closely—a little embarrassing to say,” he told lawyers during jury selection.

Juror 4—B89—Male

Juror No. 4 is from Puerto Rico. He has lived in the Lower East Side of Manhattan for 40 years and has been married “for a long time.” He has two grandchildren.

He is a self-employed technology consultant who went to college for a year. He gets his news from Google and from the Daily News and the New York Times, both of which are liberal-leaning. He told lawyers that his hobby is “my family.”

He previously served on a civil jury but cannot remember if it reached a verdict. “It was so long ago,” he said.

He said he finds Trump “fascinating and mysterious.” “So many people are set off one way or the other and that is interesting. Really, this one guy can do all of this, wow,” he said during jury selection.

Juror No. 5 is an English teacher in a private chartered school and lives in Harlem in upper Manhattan with her brother. She is a young Black woman who enjoys theater and writing in her spare time.

She was chosen after saying that she “doesn’t really care for the news” but occasionally sees it on Google and TikTok. She also listens to inspirational podcasts and, occasionally, the Breakfast Club radio show.

She said that she has friends who have strong opinions about Trump.

“President Trump speaks his mind,” she said during jury selection. “And I’d rather that than someone who’s in office who you don’t know what they’re thinking.” Full Article Newsweek.
