BREAKING: Details as Six Jurors Confirmed for Trump’s Hush Money Trial, Others

The jury selection process has begun for the criminal trial of former U.S. President Donald Trump in New York, marking a crucial moment in American history.

Trump is the first former president to stand trial, facing allegations linked to a hush money scandal. The trial stems from accusations that he made a payment to an adult film actress to prevent damaging information from surfacing during the 2016 presidential campaign.

On Tuesday, the first group of six jurors was sworn in, with additional selections still needed, including six alternates. The selection process is expected to take about two weeks, setting the stage for a trial that could last approximately two months.

The allegations involve a payment of $130,000 made to Stormy Daniels, an adult film star whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. Trump’s attorney at the time, Michael Cohen, facilitated this payment in exchange for Daniels’ silence regarding an alleged affair with Trump, which he has denied.

This trial in a Manhattan courtroom comes after multiple attempts by Trump’s legal team to delay proceedings. Judge Juan Merchan, however, has decided to move forward.

In related news, Allen Weisselberg, the former Chief Financial Officer of the Trump Organization, was recently sentenced to five months in prison. Weisselberg pled guilty to perjury charges, admitting to lying about Trump’s finances to investigators and a judge. He was taken from the courtroom in handcuffs last Wednesday.
