New development in Trump’s NY trial seems to uncover proof that proceedings are rigged

Trump has been calling the criminal charges against him bogus since the start. But the Left denies doing anything wrong.

But now, a new development in Trump’s NY trial seems to uncover proof that things are rigged against Trump.

During the second day of former President Donald Trump’s hush money trial, a potential juror was dismissed after Trump’s legal team discovered social media posts where the individual expressed strong opinions against Trump, including phrases like “lock him up.”

The trial, overseen by New York Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan and involving prosecutors from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office, has been marked by intense scrutiny of jurors’ backgrounds and online activities.

The juror in question had made several posts critical of Trump, with one notably calling for his imprisonment and another urging his removal from office.

This led to their dismissal from the jury pool, highlighting the challenges of selecting impartial jurors in such a high-profile case.

The trial’s jury selection process has proven to be a complex undertaking. The Associated Press reported that over the first two days, dozens of potential jurors were excused for reasons ranging from explicit biases to personal commitments.

Trump’s attorneys have been particularly vigilant, challenging several potential jurors over their past social media activity. One such instance led to the dismissal of a juror who, in a 2017 post, explicitly stated “Lock him up!” referring to Trump.

On the first day of the trial, the challenge of finding unbiased jurors was already evident.

Out of 96 potential jurors, more than half were dismissed after they admitted to preconceived notions about the case that would prevent them from judging fairly.

Other jurors dismissed included one who joked on social media that Republicans were “projected to pick up 70 seats in prison” and another who posted a parody video mocking Trump.

The careful examination of jurors’ social media profiles and public statements has become a critical part of the jury selection process, ensuring that those selected can evaluate the case based solely on the evidence presented.

The trial stems from charges brought against Trump in April 2023 by Manhattan DA Bragg.

Trump faces 34 counts of falsifying business records related to payments made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential campaign.

These charges are part of a broader investigation into alleged financial misconduct and have added to the already significant public and media scrutiny surrounding the former president.

The process of jury selection in Trump’s trial not only reflects the polarized political climate but also the growing impact of social media on legal proceedings.

As public figures face legal challenges, the past actions, along with the digital footprints of potential jurors, come under the microscope, complicating the legal process and raising questions about privacy and freedom of expression.

This case serves as a stark reminder of the complexities facing our legal system in the digital age, where social media can influence public opinion and potentially affect the impartiality of jury deliberations.

As the trial progresses, the court’s ability to manage these challenges will be crucial in ensuring a fair trial, based on evidence and the rule of law, unaffected by external biases or perceptions.

However, the Left has proven that they care only about locking up Trump and not ensuring a fair trial.
