House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) said on Sunday that House Republicans would use “everything in our arsenal” to retaliate against former President Donald Trump’s guilty verdict in his Manhattan hush money trial.

Johnson weighed in on the outcome of the case during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” in which he said that House Republicans can leverage the oversight powers of the lower chamber against corrupt prosecutors.

Making it clear that Republicans must remain within the “rule of law” even in their retaliation plans, Johnson said, “We are the rule of law party. Chaos is not a conservative value. We have to fight back, and we will with everything in our arsenal. But we will do that within the confines of the rule of law.”

“We believe in our institutions. We are conservatives, and we are trying to conserve the greatest country in the history of the world. And its institutions are an important part of that. Our system of justice is an important part of that,” he continued.

Johnson noted that House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) has issued summons to Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg and the lead prosecutors in Trump’s case for a hearing before the committee on June 13. This is about a month before Trump’s July 11 sentencing.

Johnson’s interview comes after he called on the U.S. Supreme Court to step into Trump’s case and overturn his conviction, a statement he made on “Fox and Friends” on Friday.

“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 said, adding, “I think that the Justices on the court – I know many of them personally – I think they are deeply concerned about that, as we are. So I think they’ll set this straight.”

While he asserted that it would take a while for Trump’s conviction to be overturned, Johnson said that it will definitely happen.

The Louisiana lawmaker has also expressed beliefs that the verdict will actually help Trump win the 2024 election. During an address at the Lincoln Dinner in Illinois on Saturday, he predicted a boost in the Republican presidential candidate’s chances even though he acknowledged that he may lose votes from some disturbed about the accusations against him.
