WASHINGTON – A jury was seated Monday in the trial of former Clinton attorney Michael Sussmann — the first trial stemming from Special Counsel John Durham’s years-long investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe — and opening arguments are expected to be presented by both the government and the defense Tuesday morning, as well as testimony from Democratic lawyer Marc Elias.
U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper on Monday presided over the first day of the Sussmann trial, which consisted of nearly eight hours of jury selection.
The article goes on to state the following:
Special Counsel John Durham was in the courtroom for the entirety of jury selection, but was not seated with the prosecution team. Instead, Durham sat in the first row of the courtroom, behind the government’s table.
Surprisingly, a staggering amount of the jurors that were selected told Judge Cooper they haven’t previously heard about the case.
Judge Cooper said, “Picking a jury is more of an art than a science.” The jury was instructed after being dismissed Monday evening not to do “any independent research about the case”.
Among those selected as jurors are two federal government employees, one who told the judge they donated to Democrats in 2016 and the other who told the judge they “strongly” dislike former President Trump. The other jurors selected are a teacher, an illustrator, a mechanic, and more.
Representing Sussmann are defense attorneys Sean Berkowitz, Michael Bosworth, Catherine Yao, and Natalie Hardwick Rao.
NEW: Sussmann jury includes “federal government employee who…donated to Democrats in 2016 and another government employee who told the judge they ‘strongly’ dislike former President Trump—both of those jurors told judge they could be impartial…”https://t.co/CqLqvVoTQk
