Juror Attrition Raises Concerns in Trump’s Manhattan Trial, Says Legal Analyst

MSNBC legal analyst Danny Cevallos suggested that Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s case against former President Donald Trump might face challenges due to juror attrition.

Cevallos highlighted that losing two jurors before the trial even began is concerning. He pointed out that while jurors might leave during a trial, losing them after selection but before proceedings is unusual.

Cevallos also mentioned the external pressures jurors face from family and friends, which can lead to second thoughts about serving.

Given these issues, he questioned whether the six alternate jurors would be sufficient. Trump has previously expressed doubts about receiving a fair trial in Manhattan, citing biases and targeting from various quarters.
