On Thursday the 12-person jury that will sit for Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s falsified business documents case against Donald Trump was selected. One alternate was selected on Thursday, and the remaining five alternates were selected on Friday.

The 12-person jury consists of seven men and five women, with careers ranging from retirees and lawyers to teachers and engineers, according to Fox News. These are the jurors selected to be part of the panel: 

Juror #1 

Juror #1, also the foreperson, lives in New York City and has no children. He said he receives his news from MSNBC, Fox News, The Daily Mail, and The New York Times. 

Trump defense attorney Todd Blance asked if he was aware that Trump was being charged in other cases and how that affects him, with the man responding, "I don’t have an opinion." 

Juror #2 

Juror #2 is a man who said he followed "right-wing" accounts on social media, such as Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen so that he could be informed of "anything that might move the markets I might need to know about." 

When asked if he would unfollow Cohen, who may be a witness in the trial, he responded "absolutely." 

He said that he has "not seen any evidence" relating to the case," and that "I will try to keep an open mind." 

The man told Trump lawyer Susan Necheles that Trump has done some good for the country, adding in relation to his opinion on the former president, "It’s ambivalent. It goes both ways." 

The man replaced a woman who was initially sworn in to be juror #2 after she said she could not be impartial

She said that she has friends who have strong opinions of Trump, but that she was not a political person and avoids these types of conversations.

"I don’t know the man and I don’t have any opinions about him personally," he added.  

As for his career as a lawyer, the man said he doesn’t have any opinions on Trump’s character.
