Trump Judge Orders Media Not To Report Juror Details

 April 19, 2024

The judge overseeing the hush money case against former President Donald Trump recently made a NUCLEAR decision.

He ordered the press not to report descriptions of jurors.

Multiple reports have said that the judge has decided that America's media isn't even allowed to release physical details about the jurors, and asked reporters, writers, and the rest of the news world to "apply common sense" when reporting on Donald Trump's case.

"There’s a reason why this is an anonymous jury, and we’ve taken the measures we have taken," Judge Juan Merchan said. "It kind of defeats the purpose of that when so much information is put out there."

Merchan made the announcement after one of the seven selected jurors came forward with concerns about her ability to be impartial, saying that friends and colleagues were already asking her if she was on the jury because of press reports.

"I don’t believe, at this point, that I can be fair and unbiased and let the outside influences not affect my thinking in the courtroom," the juror told Judge Juan Merchan.

In March, Merchan had decided that the jury should remain anonymous.

This whole case began way back when Democratic Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg indicted Donald Trump last April on 34 felony accounts for allegedly falsifying business records regarding hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels in the time preceding the 2016.

Donald's reputation took another blow related to this one when the prosecution brought up a woman by the name of MacDougal, who claims to have had an affair with Donald Trump while his wife, Melania Trump, was pregnant with their son, Barron Trump.

MacDougal is being brought in by prosecution against Donald Trump as a character witness to prove that Trump has a history of this sort of behavior.

Donald Trump's reputation seems relatively intact for now, as most Americans support him based on his ability to get things done, not based on his romantic exploits.

It's hard not to wonder about Juan Merchan's decisions in this case. According to Donald Trump himself, Juan Merchan is a "certified Trump hater."

What do you think about this story?

Was Judge Juan Merchan's order reasonable?

Will the jurors in the trial ever have the ability to stay impartial?

Could Donald Trump eventually defeat this case and end up in the White House?
