  • The hush money trial begins Monday in a Manhattan courtroom and is expected to last about six weeks. New York Judge Juan Merchan is overseeing the trial.

  • Donald Trump is expected to attend the first hearing in New York today, but he will not. He won’t testify or anything like that. He will likely speak to the media outside the courthouse about the case, although he is under a gag order to prevent him from making public statements about witnesses, prosecutors, court staff and the Merchan family members and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg — but not about those two men themselves.

  • Jury selection is expected to begin Monday.

Summary of the Hush Money case: The case concerns a hush-money scheme during the 2016 presidential election. Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen paid $130,000 to adult film star Stormy Daniels to quash her story about an extramarital affair with the former president. Trump has denied that the affair took place. Prosecutors accuse the former president of illegally reimbursing Cohen for the hush money payment by misclassifying the transaction, conducted by the Trump Organization, as legal fees.
