Who are the 12 jurors who will decide on Trump’s guilt in the Stormy Daniels trial

Donald Trump will be judged in his historic criminal trial in New York by 12 jurors selected last week after a meticulous search for people who could be fair and impartial towards the former Republican President of the United States in Manhattan, the Democratic stronghold where he made his name as a real estate mogul decades ago.

They are seven men and five women (plus six alternates) and live in New York City. The defense of the former president does not need to convince them all: one is enough to prevent the conviction for which unanimity is necessary.

Stormy Daniels case: what is Trump accused of

The Stormy Daniels case involves allegations that adult film actress Stormy Daniels (real name Stephanie Gregory Clifford) had an affair with Donald Trump in 2006.

During Trump’s presidency, Daniels claimed she was paid $130,000 in hush money by Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, just before the 2016 election to keep quiet about the affair. Daniels signed a nondisclosure agreement (NDA) as part of this arrangement.

The case raised legal questions about campaign finance laws and presidential conduct. Michael Cohen later pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations related to this payment. The controversy highlighted issues of transparency and accountability in politics.
