Support for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign among potential jurors in the trial of former campaign attorney Michael Sussmann frustrated prosecutors as jury selection began Monday.

Nearly a quarter of the potential jurors screened by prosecutors and defense attorneys in the Washington, D.C. courtroom early Monday said they had either donated to Mrs. Clinton’s campaign in 2016 or had strong opinions about the election, won by Republican Donald Trump.

U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper reminded several potential jurors who expressed pro-Clinton views that this trial wasn’t about the 2016 election.

“This case has political overtones, but Hillary Clinton is not on trial. Donald Trump is not on trial. Michael Sussmann is on trial and he deserves a fair one,” he said at one point.
