    Trump predicted "all hell
    would break loose" before his trial. HA Nobody cared.

    Interesting how they’ve had to dismiss a number of potential jurors for Trump’s trial as they admitted they could not be impartial. Does anyone really think he’ll get a fair trial in NYC?

    Where would he get a fair trial though?

    I have no idea. The real issue is should he even be on trial for these 34 alleged felonies. From what I’ve read, it seems to be serious over charging by the NY DA.

    I take that as a positive sign. Sounds like most people are being honest instead of trying to weasel their way onto the jury in order to be a sure fire vote for conviction or acquittal. This was clearly anticipated as they have a pool of 500 to try to find 18 jurors (12 regular, 6 alternatives).

    I think it is interesting that of the 7 seated already, 1 is a software engineer and 2 are attorneys. Engineers and attorneys are typically who you want to avoid having on a jury.

    Could be. My fear is someone getting on the jury who’s already thinking about the book they’ll write about how they put Trump in jail.

    Well you are in luck there, there is a 0% chance that Trump will see a day in jail on this case.

    Low level felony. Elderly defendant. Relatively clean record. All of this points to a fine with a few years of probation, at worse a brief stint of house arrest.
