A potential juror Donald Trump's The New York criminal trial spoke about her experiences after she was fired for admitting she would be unable to remain neutral on the divisive issue. RadarOnline.com can reveal.

MSNBC news reporter Yasmin Vossoughian interviewed the woman, identified only as “Kat,” Thursday morning, just after Judge Juan Merchan excused her from the courtroom during day four of the hush money trial in Manhattan.

When Vossoughian asked why she was fired, Kat replied, “Because I couldn't be impartial.”

Kat also revealed that she had spoken to other potential jurors about the “historic case” and how it will “define so many things.”

“But at the same time, our job as jurors is to be impartial and unbiased,” she continued. “So it was weird, that whole atmosphere. Such an important matter.'

The woman said she arrived in court for the first time on Tuesday for jury duty, but had no idea which case she would be assigned to until she and the others in the potential jury pool “entered the courtroom and we saw Donald Trump.”

“I was shocked,” Kat continued, adding, “I couldn't believe it,” and, “Everyone was shocked. Everyone was frozen.”

The reporter wondered what her “impression” of Trump was when she saw him.

“He definitely looked less orange, more yellow,” the interviewee responded, laughing. She said the former president “doesn't look angry,” and that he “looks bored, like he wants this to end.”

“Did he look at you?” Vossoughian asked.

“Sometimes Trump turned his head, but that was it. He didn't get up or anything,” Kat replied.

The dismissed juror also explained that she had just become a United States citizen in August and therefore had never served on a jury or even voted in a presidential election when she was chosen for the high-profile case.

When questioned by the judge, he said he no longer believed Trump should be jailed.

At that moment, Donald Trump “cranked his neck at a potential juror and flashed a grin,” according to USA Today reporter Aysha Bagchi wrote.

Despite his apparent change of heart, the judge fired him. Merchan explained that he would not have challenged the post if it had stopped before the calls to imprison Trump.
