'Trojan horse jurors' are biggest concern in Trump trial: Jonathan Turley

Constitutional law professor and Fox News contributor Jonathan Turley reacted to the jury selection process for former President Donald Trump's hush money payments trial on Thursday.

Turley warned that the jury pool in Manhattan may be "heavily weighted, obviously, with people who have strong opinions against Trump." 

"Only about 12% of the people in this area voted for Trump. The jurors you have to worry about are the ones who are sort of Trojan horse jurors. They're the ones who are hiding bias that doesn't appear on social media or are involved in any formal charges," Turley said on "America Reports." 

"Those are the ones you have to worry about, that they're so motivated by their dislike for Trump that they're willing to lie on the stand. Now, we have seen jurors who have later been found to have misrepresented their histories in a couple of prior cases involving Trump associates. In both those cases, the judges in Washington, DC refused to reconsider the verdict. And so this is a very important stage to try to filter out these types of jurors."
