Two jurors dismissed in hush money case

by | Apr 18, 2024

Two jurors have been dismissed from Trump’s Manhattan hush money trial after one expressed concerns about the media revealing her identity, and another was questioned about the honesty of his answers.

The dismissed first juror expressed concerns about her identity being revealed by the media before Judge Juan Merchan excused her. He then urged journalists to limit descriptions of jurors. Merchan ruled that media outlets cannot publish jurors' responses to question 3 on the questionnaire, which asks about their employment history.

Prosecutors raised doubts about the honesty of one juror's responses regarding their past, prompting that juror to be summoned back to court today. This second juror was let go after prosecutors maintained issues with the veracity of his answers.

Meanwhile, prosecutors accuse Trump of violating his gag order seven more times, citing online posts and describing the situation as “ridiculous.”
