Speaker of the House Mike Johnson was a guest of Donald Trump at his trial in New York City on Tuesday. Johnson held a brief press conference outside the courthouse after a morning inside.

Johnson called the proceedings a “travesty of justice” and said it’s obvious Democrats are trying to keep Donald Trump off the campaign trial.

“I am disgusted by what is happening here—what is being done here to our entire system of justice overall,” Mr. Johnson said. “I wanted to be here myself to call out what is a travesty of justice, and I think everybody around the country can see that. President Trump is a friend, and I wanted to be here to support him.”

“They are doing this intentionally to keep him here and keep him off the campaign trail, and I think everybody in the country can see that for what it is,” he said.

“What we’ve got here is a partisan Democrat district attorney, we have a Biden donor judge, and we have an assistant DA who was recently a top official at the Department of Justice, Biden’s DOJ, and recently received over $10,000 in payments from the Democratic National Committee,” he said.

“These are politically motivated trials, and they are a disgrace. It is election interference, and they show how desperate the opposition to President Trump is and how desperate they truly are,” he said. “The American people are not going to let this stand. Election day cannot get here soon enough, and we will continue to shine a light on all of this in Congress because we have that constitutional responsibility.”
