Mike Johnson predicts that Supreme Court will overturn Trump's conviction

 June 2, 2024

Last week saw former President Donald Trump convicted of falsifying business records in a trial which many conservatives regarded as being politically driven.

However, House Speaker Mike Johnson believes that the Supreme Court will overturn Trump's conviction. 

Johnson: "There's no question" Trump will win in court

According to NBC News, the Louisiana Republican made that prediction during a Friday appearance on "Fox & Friends."

"There's a lot of developments yet to come, but I do believe the Supreme Court should step in, obviously," Johnson was quoted as saying of Trump's case.

"I think that the justices on the court — I know many of them personally — I think they’re deeply concerned about that as we are. So I think they’ll set this straight, but it’s going to take awhile," he continued.

"This will be overturned, guys, there's no question about it. It's just going to take some time to do it," the House speaker went on to insist.

"People have to believe that justice is fair"

Johnson further maintained that Democrats "risk[ing] the destruction of the entire legal system" in their quest to defeat Trump.

"People have to believe that justice is fair, that there’s equal justice under law. They don't see that right now," he concluded.

Johnson is not alone in raising the prospect of involvement by the Supreme Court in Trump's case, as conservative radio host and former Regan administration attorney Mark Levin has done so as well.

According to Breitbart, Levin put up a social media post in which he accused Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg of having "taken up a case in which there is exclusive FEDERAL JURISDICTION (involving the Federal Election Campaign Act)."

Levin points to conflicts involving judge

He noted this was done despite "the federal agencies with authority over enforcing federal campaign laws, the Federal Election Commission and the Southern District of New York/U.S. attorney's office, declined to bring charges."

This was a reference to Bragg's argument that Trump's alleged hush-money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels constituted an illegal campaign expenditure despite the Federal Election Commission (FEC) finding otherwise.

Levin also highlighted potential conflicts of interests involving Judge Juan Merchan, such as the fact that the judge's daughter works as a political consultant for Democratic politicians and has used Trump's trial to raise money.

He went on to "strongly encourage" the former president's defense attorney to seek redress via "an emergency appeal to" America's highest judicial body.
