Speaker Mike Johnson has called for the Supreme Court to intervene in former President Trump’s appeal following his conviction on 34 felony counts in a New York hush-money case.

Johnson, a Louisiana Republican, stressed the importance of the Supreme Court’s involvement during an interview on Fox News. He said, “I do believe the Supreme Court should step in.” Expressing confidence in the justices, Johnson said they also shared concerns about the case. He stated, “Many of the justices are deeply concerned about that, as we are. So, I think they will set this straight, but it’s gonna take a while.”

This comes after Trump was found guilty of falsifying business records to conceal alleged affairs during his 2016 presidential campaign, with sentencing scheduled for July 11, just before the Republican National Committee’s convention. Johnson described the situation as “unprecedented” and said it was eroding public trust in the justice system. The former president’s legal team plans to appeal the conviction after the sentencing, aiming for the Supreme Court to ultimately review the case.
