Dozens Of Jurors Reject Trump Trial.

Dozens Of Jurors Reject Trump Trial.

United States ex-President, Donald Trump's unprecedented criminal trial has begun with half of a group of potential jurors ruled out within minutes on impartiality grounds.

Mr Trump denies falsifying business records to conceal a hush-money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels, and 60 of 96 potential jurors were quick to say in the New York court that they could not be impartial.


The Manhattan District Attorney's Office alleges that Mr Trump directed his former attorney, Michael Cohen, to pay Ms Daniels in exchange for her silence about an alleged sexual encounter that the former president denies took place.


Prosecutors say he did so to "unlawfully influence" the 2016 election, and Trump has pleaded not guilty.


Jury selection began in the afternoon, while, the judge started by dismissing jurors who raised their hand to say they could not be impartial, leaving around 34 people, and the judge refused to allow the audio to be played for jurors, but said prosecutors could refer to what Trump said on the tape.
