Speaker Johnson Urges Supreme Court To ‘Step In’ On Trump Appeal

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) called for the U.S. Supreme Court to “step in” to overturn the guilty verdict against former President Trump in his New York hush money trial.

In an appearance on Fox and Friends, Johnson stated, “There’s a lot of developments yet to come, but I do believe the Supreme Court should step in, obviously, this is totally unprecedented.” He added that many of the Justices, whom he knows personally, are “deeply concerned” about the situation and will likely “set this straight,” although it may take some time.

The comment comes as Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito is under fire from many Democratic lawmakers for a pair of controversies in which flags associated with right-wing movements flew at his homes. Many Democrats have pressed for Alito to recuse himself from Jan. 6-related cases as a result, a step Alito has refused to take.

Trump’s allies are already looking to check this abuse of power, with one prospective Trump attorney general candidate telling Axios’ Zach Basu and Sophia Cai that GOP prosecutors should go after Democrats in response.

Johnson’s comments reflect the growing frustration among Republicans in the aftermath of the jury’s decision. Trump’s legal team has said they plan to appeal, though they would first have to go through New York appellate courts before reaching the U.S. Supreme Court.

The House leader’s remarks also coincide with scrutiny of the court’s most conservative members, particularly Justices Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas, regarding their ability to impartially consider decisions related to Trump and the 2020 election — but allow activist pro-abortion members to vote without any doubts in their impartiality.

As we move forward into this untested territory, the overreach of the Biden regime has made Americans stop and take notice of the people running their government. November is only a few months away.
