Woman on Trump Jury Breaks Down in Tears After Revealing Connection to Michael Cohen

Friday marked day four of Trump’s ‘hush money’ trial in New York City.

The day took a dramatic turn when a far-left protestor set himself on fire outside of the courthouse.

12 jurors were selected and five more alternate jurors were seated.

One prospective juror broke down in tears after revealing her connection to Trump’s former lawyer and convicted perjurer Michael Cohen and former NJ governor Chris Christie.

“I feel so nervous and anxious right now,” the juror said as she began to cry.

“I don’t want to waste the court’s time,” she said. “I thought I could do this. This is so much more stressful than I thought it was going to be.”

The judge excused the juror.

Fox News reported:

A potential juror who said she had connections to both former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Donald Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen has been excused.

The woman said her father is a lifelong friend of Christie, who ran against former President Trump in the 2016 and 2024 Republican primaries, and that she works at the same company as Cohen’s son, although they’ve never crossed paths. The juror said she initially thought she could remain impartial but realized she could not.

The judge called her to the bench. After a brief exchange, she was excused.
