Liz Cheney Slam Dunks Mike Johnson After He Shows Up At Trump’s Hush Money Trial

Former GOP Rep. Liz Cheney (WY) couldn’t contain her disgust when it was reported that Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA) would be in attendance today at failed former president Donald Trump’s New York hush money trial.

Earlier in the morning, The Hill reported that Johnson would indeed become the latest Republican to appear and offer moral support to Trump.

In a statement confirming Johnson’s appearance in Manhattan, the Speaker’s office called the hush money case “the sham prosecution of President Trump” and railed against “left-wing Manhattan district attorney” Alvin Bragg, who led the investigation into the former president.

On Monday, Sens. J.D. Vance (R-OH) and Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) were at the Manhattan courthouse. Both spewed fact-free conspiracy theories about Trump’s prosecution for falsifying business records and illegally interfering in the 2016 election.

But having the current speaker show up was a bridge too much for Cheney, who lit into Johnson on Twitter.

Others on social media also joined in mocking Johnson.
