All 12 jurors were seated on Thursday, the third day of former President Donald Trump’s hush money trial in Manhattan.

“We have our jury,” Judge Juan Merchan said when the 12th juror was picked.

The 12 jurors and one alternate included seven men and six women.

The jurors included, according to NBC News:

— A man who lives in West Harlem and works in sales. He is married, likes to do “anything outdoorsy,” and gets news from The New York Times, Fox News and MSNBC.

— A man who works in investment banking, follows Twitter as well as Truth Social posts from Trump and said, “I don’t have any beliefs that might prevent me from being fair or impartial.”

— A young man who has lived in Chelsea for five years, works as an attorney in corporate law, and likes to hike and run. He gets news from The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Google.

— A man who’s a security engineer and likes woodworking and metalworking.

— A young woman who is a Harlem resident and works as a teacher. She lives with her boyfriend, loves writing, theater and traveling. She gets news from Google and TikTok and listens to podcasts on relationships and pop culture.

— A young woman who lives in Chelsea and works as a software engineer. She gets news from The New York Times, Google, Facebook and TikTok.

— A man who lives on the Upper East Side and works as attorney as a civil litigator. He enjoys spending time in the outdoors and gets his news from The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Post and the Washington Post.

— A man who’s retired but worked for a major wealth manager. He said he enjoys skiing, fly fishing and yoga.

— A woman who is a speech therapist, gets news from CNN and likes reality TV podcasts.

— A man who works in commerce, reads The New York Times and listens to podcasts on behavioral psychology.

— A woman who works as a product development manager and watches late-night news and reads Google, business and fashion news.

— A woman who is a physical therapist who likes running and tennis and listening to podcasts on sports and faith.

As an alternate:

— A woman who works as an asset manager and likes to run, hang out with her friends and eat.

The 12 jurors and one alternate were sworn in. Five more alternates are needed.

Two jurors who were seated on Tuesday were dismissed. One was a woman who said she had concerns about her identity being revealed and those concerns potentially affecting her ability to be impartial, and the other was a man who the prosecutors wanted dismissed.

Merchan instructed reporters to stop mentioning physical appearances of jurors, specifically mentioning reports that identified one as having an Irish accent.

He also lamented that one juror was lost that would have been good for the case. It is not clear which juror he was referencing.

Merchan also asked reporters not to identify the jurors’ former or current employers. “It’s become a problem,” he said.
Forty-eight were immediately dismissed earlier in the day after they said they could not be fair or impartial as jurors in the case.

The court adjourned and will resume Friday at 9:30 a.m. A group of 22 jurors will return to answer a screening questionnaire.

Merchan denied Trump’s lawyers’ request to have Tuesday off for Passover to accommodate the religious needs of a member of his legal team, only granting shortened sessions on Monday and Tuesday.
