What is expected to happen in Thursday's trial proceedings?

Jury selection in former President Trump’s unprecedented criminal trial stemming from charges brought by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is expected to resume Thursday morning.

Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, has been charged with 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree. The charges are related to alleged hush money payments made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

Trump has pleaded not guilty to all counts. He has blasted the trial as “pure politics,” a "political persecution" and maintains his innocence. The former president is expected to testify during his trial on his behalf.

Seven jurors were selected and sworn in on Tuesday. Eleven more are needed before opening arguments can begin.

The jury selection process can take up to two weeks.
