Speaker Mike Johnson Criticizes Judicial Oversight and Calls for Accountability on Mark Levin Show

by BIZ Magazine

Washington, D.C. – In a recent appearance on The Mark Levin Show, Speaker of the House Mike Johnson addressed what he describes as a “double standard” in judicial oversight and the “unprecedented weaponization of justice” against President Trump, the leading contender in the upcoming U.S. Presidential election. Johnson emphasized that these issues are eroding public trust in American institutions.

“It’s undermining the people’s faith in our system of justice itself. And to me, that is the greatest threat that transcends even this presidential cycle,” Johnson asserted during the interview. He stressed the importance of maintaining faith in justice and the risks posed by perceived biases and unfair practices within the judicial system.

Johnson strongly criticized what he sees as the Democrats’ misuse of judicial power, arguing that their actions are politically motivated to hinder Trump’s campaign. “The weaponization of our system is doing lasting damage here,” he stated. “The Democrats are going to stop at nothing to silence dissent, crush their political opponents. They’ve risked the destruction of our entire system of justice to stop our nominee for president because he was crushing Biden in the polls.”

Highlighting what he perceives as a double standard, Johnson pointed to the treatment of Justice Alito versus the judge overseeing President Trump’s case. He noted that Justice Alito faced calls for recusal due to personal connections, while a Manhattan judge, who Johnson claims is openly supportive of Biden, continues to preside over Trump’s case. “The whole thing just smacks of corruption,” Johnson said.

The Speaker also discussed Congress’s role in providing oversight and holding individuals accountable. He praised the efforts of House Republicans to act as a barrier against what he calls the “radical progressive agenda,” despite holding a narrow majority. Johnson revealed plans to bring Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg before the House Weaponization Select Committee to answer for his actions. “We’re going to do everything we can to hold them accountable for this and to conduct oversight,” he declared.

Johnson concluded by reaffirming his commitment to seeking justice and maintaining institutional integrity. “We have to do it,” he said, underscoring the urgency and importance of congressional oversight in these matters.
