When asked if I had an opinion on the man....

"While I find Mr. Trump amoral and immoral, lacking in empathy and compassion with no sense of right or wrong, I also believe that every American under indictment for crimes is guaranteed a trial by a jury of one's peers. The 6th Amendment to the US Constitution explains that the presumption of innocence until proven guilty by said jury based on the facts and evidence presented, shall not be infringed. I believe in the Rule of Law."

Perhaps my response would not qualify me to be on this jury, but at least TSF would know how I felt and that the Rule of Law is still what keeps this country from falling apart. His defense lawyers do not want "smart jurors".
