House Speaker Mike Johnson to attend Trump’s hush money trial: report

Donald Trump will have another special guest attend his trial in the New York hush money case after a pair of senators and other elected officials showed their support at the courthouse.

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) is expected Tuesday at the Manhattan courthouse where the former president is standing trial for falsifying business records as part of a conspiracy to cover up an extramarital affair with adult film actress Stormy Daniels that witnesses have said was intended to aid his 2016 election campaign, Punchbowl News reported.

Sens. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) and J.D. Vance (R-OH) attended portions of the trial Monday, when Trump’s longtime personal attorney told the jury about the scheme and the former president’s disinterest in his wife Melania’s reaction to news of his affairs.

It’s not clear how long Johnson would attend the trial or whether he would speak in Trump’s defense as the Republican senators did afterward.
