Jury selection could take weeks. Our senior investigative correspondent, Eric Urki, guided us in court tonight. Tonight, Donald Trump entered the courtroom on the 15th floor in New York. York state supreme court in lower Manhattan the first president in US history to be tried as a criminal defendant nothing like this has ever happened before there has never been anything like this it is a scandal that this case has been brought forward Trump faces 34 felony counts of falsifying business records to cover up a hush payment to porn star Stormy Daniels to keep her allegations of an affair secret from voters during the 2016 campaign in court The former president sits with a stern face as jury selection began the task of choosing 12 jurors and six alternates to pass judgment on one of the most famous men on the planet Trump moving his eyes to the first 96 potential jurors as they introduced themselves a woman laughing with her hand on her mouth with eyebrows raised as he recognized Judge Juan Maran explaining that a fair juror is a person who has no prejudices or prejudice in favor or against a party or witness with Trump watching from the defense table, more than half of The prospective jurors then raised their hands to indicate that they could not be fair and impartial, an unusually high number of those people immediately apologized, one of them overheard in the hallway saying that he just couldn't do it, a dozen more people were Excused for other reasons, those who remained were called to the jury box to answer one by one a seven-page questionnaire that screened for bias.
abc world news tonight with david muir full broadcast   april 15 2024
Trump followed him holding the questionnaire. in his hand the judge excused a woman who answered affirmatively to a question about whether she had strong opinions about Trump that interfered with her ability to be fair a man who works in a bookstore said I think no one is above the law whether a former president, a sitting president or a janitor, the judge allowed him to remain on the jury, but at the end of the day only a single jury had been seated, it's a scam, it's a political witch hunt, it goes on and on forever, Judge Maran today makes some other key rulings in the case, one of them on the Access Hollywood tape where Trump bragged about groping women when you start, they let you do it, the judge ruled that prosecutors could subpoena the tape but couldn't they could reproduce it in court.
Jurors ruled that former Playboy model Karen McDougall, who claims the National Inquirer paid her for a story about an alleged fair with Trump only to bury her (a practice known as catch-and-kill), will likely be a prosecution witness as well. Than Stormy Daniels. Trump herself denies having affairs with both women, so let's bring Erin kki to live with us from New York tonight outside the courthouse. We still know that people in the US have such strong opinions one way or another about Donald Trump that you wonder how. It's going to take a long time to try to form a jury in this case and, as I understand it, Aaron, both the prosecutors and the defense, Donald Trump's lawyers will be able to eliminate a certain number of potential jurors, here they will do it with David, but first the The judge is making some initial cuts based on the answers to the jury questionnaires, then the attorneys can question the remaining potential jurors one on one.
Each side can eliminate up to 10 people for almost any reason. The judge has reserved two weeks for all this and then. Once testimony begins, the trial could last six weeks, and of course, Aaron, all of this is going to take place while Donald Trump is the Republican candidate for president, there's a campaign going on, there are a lot of other cases that he's also facing, and Trump today asked the judge for permission to attend arguments in the federal case those arguments in the Supreme Court next week about presidential immunity and whether it covers him, but the judge denied Trump's request that David made, the judge said that it's a big deal to argue before the US Supreme Court, but the judge said a criminal defendant on trial in New York is also a big deal he wants it here this kind of conflict David was bound to happen The apparitions of Trump in court are now completely intertwined in his political strategy and David his campaign is meandering from courtroom to courtroom David Aon pki guiding us tonight Aaron, thank you, let's move now to the events here in Israel after Iran's first direct attack against Israel tonight.
Israel's top military chief says Iran will face consequences. Israel's war cabinet meeting for the second day in a row. Late into the night, it is revealed here that there is no decision tonight on how or when they will respond. The

world

watches as Iran attacks with more than 300 missiles and drones. Of course, US help, but the White House has made it clear tonight that if Israel decides to hit back at Iran, it will do so alone. The US will not participate. Matt Gman right here in Tel Aviv with us tonight here in Israel at the war cabinet meeting.
Behind closed doors for the second day in a row, Israel tonight made clear that there will be a response to Iran's first direct attack on Israel. 300 missiles and drones aimed at Israel. 99% of those jammed missiles and drones were shot out of the sky. US aid today afternoon Israel's top military chief promises they will respond to Iran Iran will face the consequences of its actions, we will choose to use our response accordingly and tonight the White House and other world leaders urge extreme caution warning Israel to be extra careful Whatever decision it makes, the United States warns Israel that it will not participate in any Israeli counterattack against Iran.
President Biden today says the United States is committed to Israel's security and praised America's efforts to help protect Israel from Iran's attack, together with our partners, we defeated that attack. It was just before midnight on Sunday, under the cover of Darkness, that the Iranian assault began to unfold for the next 15 minutes or so in total uncertainty, then when the extent of this was revealed, Israeli and American officials were stunned by the magnitude of the Iranian attack. of nearly 200 drones and cruise missiles followed by the launch of around 130 bus-sized ballistic missiles programmed to confuse Israel's defenses. Fighter jets from the US, France, England and Israel eliminate the majority of drones and cruise missiles.
Ballistic missiles seen here flying over Jerusalem. launched from the sky by Israel's air defense system, including the Arrow high-altitude anti-missile systems. Israel says it eliminated 99% of those threats. The Pentagon says the United States destroyed about 80 drones and six ballistic missiles. Video circulating online verified by ABC News showing one of the few Iranian missiles hitting its target and causing minor damage to an Israeli Air Force base. The IDF says this video shows troops recovering parts of an Iranian ballistic missile from the Dead Sea. The only victim was a seriously injured 7-year-old girl. because of the shrapnel he survived and is now recovering in a hospital we have been training for years we understood that Iran is the negative player in the region, it is not over, of course, Iran is not involved in everything negative, the White House calls for an attack by Iran. a spectacular and shameful failure and tonight the White House avoids commenting on any possible Israeli response that is coming.
I'm not going to enter into hypotheses. You are asking me to anticipate, as far as I know, a decision that the war cabinet has not made. There has not even been a mass demonstration in Tyran today in support of the attack on Israel. The Iranian leader indicates that he does not want an escalation and says that after his attack they consider the matter closed, but tonight Iran warns Israel that if it takes additional measures, Iran will do so. Please respond in seconds, so let's bring Mount Gman here in Israel with us tonight and Matt, as you know, the war cabinet will meet again this afternoon in Israel night, making it clear that you will respond now, so what have you learned tonight? an Israeli response looks like here David Israeli officials tell me there are multiple options ranging from a targeted attack on an Iranian commander in a third country to a direct attack on Iran and it seems the military here is convinced it has to reassert deterrence to tell Iran that this cannot happen again, but I am told that every move is being care

y calibrated so as not to waste this defensive Coalition that the United States built to protect Israel.
David Matt Gutman with us here in Tel Aviv Matt, thank you and speaking about this directly. Iranian attack on Israel President Biden today says that together with our partners we defeated Iran's attack, let's bring in our chief White House correspondent, Barry Bruce, tonight because Mary the White House also with a warning to Israel about any retaliation against Iran essentially saying, uh, if you retaliate it will retaliate alone, that's the message tonight David look, the White House is making it clear that what comes next, how Israel will respond is ultimately up to them, but the administration is also urging restraint, they are trying to do everything they can to prevent this from spiraling into a broader war, so the message from the White House tonight is that this was a victory for Israel, a great military success.
You heard the president, they are declaring that they defeated Iran and as Prime Minister Netanyahu weighs his next move here, the president has urged him directly. It is necessary to think care

y and strategically about therisk of escalation, so while the president underscores America's staunch defense of Israel, the White House has also made clear and said that the United States will not engage in any retaliatory counterattack against Iran. David, it's okay, Mary Bruce, live with the Mary in the White House, thank you, and of course the Pentagon expresses surprise at the extent of the Iranian attack and relief at how well the defense is holding up.
Let's bring on our senior Global Affairs correspondent, Martha RIS, tonight and Martha, from her reporting, who she's learned the most about. what the United States did to help defend Israel, yes, David, the coordination was extraordinary. You had dozens of Israeli fighter jets and us in the air. Only American fighters shot down those 80 drones armed with heat-seeking missiles, there were refueling tankers on the planes at sea. launching anti-ballistic missiles while tracking over 300 drones and missiles launched by Iran and its proxies, so many moving parts and they still managed to stop those missiles and drones and not shoot each other down, but despite that success, as Mary said the Pentagon will not participate in assisting any Israeli attack on Iran, nor in air resupply, nothing, a senior US official warns that Israel intends to respond, adding that the world may think this is over, it's not David and Martha, I know They've been talking to their sources about this, how surprised they were by the scope, the size of this Iranian attack and the fact that it was a direct attack on Israel, well, the US had thought about a dozen missiles would be launched. ballistics, but the head of Central Command updated that by saying they were expecting more than a hundred.
One of the officials who heard the update said he was so shaken his hands were breaking. shaking when he wrote down that number David Martha was with us here tonight Martha thank you, we have one more point on this tonight, as we reported here, this was the first time that Iran attacked Israel directly rather than through its proxies, those militia groups. supports across the region here and just over the border, of course, in Lebanon, that's where we find our foreign correspondent James Longman tonight and James. I know there is concern there and throughout the region about whether Israel will attack the proxies in response or whether Israel will do what Iran did here and attack Iran directly, yes David this region is preparing for Israel's response.
The question is where they could strike and how extensive it could be. Could they attack inside Iran or could they attack here in Lebanon and Iran's most important ally, could Hezbollah there? could be an incursion that would move Hezbollah away from the border with Israel, what is clear is that all of Iran's representatives in this region have been emboldened and, although Arab governments are calling for restraint, there is real fury in the streets here over the situation in Gaza that people might not want an all-out war, but they do see Iran as the only regional power that is taking the fight to Israel and tonight an Iranian official said that if there is an attack inside Iran, their response will not be in hours or days.
We'll be in seconds David James Longman reporting from Lebanon tonight James Mary Martha and Matt our thanks to all of you who briefed us on this tonight. We return to the
