Donald Trump Arrives For Third Day Of Hush Money Trial After Posting Attack On Potential Jurors

Donald Trump arrived at a Manhattan courthouse this morning for the third day in his hush money trial, but there are new questions as to whether he will be admonished in any form after posting an attack on potential jurors.

On Truth Social, Trump posted an on-air quote from Fox News host Jesse Watters, one of his long time defenders. The quote read, “They are catching undercover Liberal Activists lying to the Judge in order to get on the Trump Jury.”

Judge Juan Merchan’s partial gag order restricts Trump from commenting on jurors or potential jurors, as well as expected witnesses in the case and courtroom staff. Prosecutors already are asking the judge to fine Trump for violating the order for his attacks on his former attorney Michael Cohen and former porn actress Stormy Daniels.

As in most trials, judges are particularly protective of jurors, with Merchan shielding the public disclosure of the names of the jurors. The judge on Tuesday warned Trump’s attorneys, “I will not have any jurors intimidated in this courtroom.” That followed Trump’s audible muttering as a prospective juror was being questioned.

So far, seven people have been sworn in to serve on the jury in the case, with addition selection slated for today and Friday. The judge has said that he expects opening statements on Monday.
