6. As far as a Trump trial goes, all I can say is "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!"

First signs of Trump jury selection process may have just landed in D.C. mailboxes

WASHINGTON — Potential jurors in former President Donald Trump's federal election interference trial may know they are in the pool now.

The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia has sent prospective jurors a "pre-screening" form asking about their availability to appear in person Feb. 9 to fill out a written questionnaire for use in the jury selection process for a March 4 trial. A resident in Washington, D.C., who received one of the forms in the mail Monday shared an image of it with NBC News.

Though the form does not name or refer to the defendant directly, the court had earlier set those dates for the questionnaire and the start of Trump's trial. The form advises potential jurors that their trial "may last approximately three months after jury selection is completed," which is consistent with estimates of the timetable for Trump's trial.

Recipients were also notified that the in-person written questionnaire is different from the online version, which is often the only one used in federal trials.

Fingers crossed, but I think it's happening!
