( – Judge Juan Merchan has set restrictions for potential jurors in the New York City falsifying business records criminal case against former President Donald Trump, which blocks them from receiving any questions relating to their political party, their political contributions, and history of voting. 

Newsweek has reported that despite this the jury could possibly face tough questions that would indicate their political leanings. Both Republicans and Democrats are eligible to serve on the jury which is going to help ensure that the jury remains impartial and that the evidence presented in the case can be rightly judged. 

Trump is facing a total of  34 counts in this case and has pleaded not guilty to all. The case relates to his attempts to hide the hush money payment made to former adult film star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 presidential election in exchange for her silence about their alleged affair. Trump has denied the affair. 

The trial is set to begin on April 15 in Manhattan. 

On Monday in a letter to Trump’s lawyers, Assistant District Joshua Steinglass and attorney Todd Blanche noted that Merchan had listed 42 questions that could be used while questioning potential jurors. He also noted that there are no questions that could be asked to jurors about who they had voted for in the past or who they intended to vote for. There would also not be any questions relating to who they had made political contributions to. 

He further noted that the jurors would not be asked in the questionnaire about their party registration.
