Trump to Meet with House Speaker Mike Johnson to Discuss False Election Claims as Johnson's Role as Speaker in Jeopardy

  • last month
House Speaker Mike Johnson will meet with Donald Trump on Friday to discuss "election integrity," amplifying Trump's false stolen election claims. Trump's false narrative that the 2020 election was corrupt has taken over the GOP and become central to his 2024 campaign. Johnson promoted Trump's conspiracy theories by seeking signatures for a lawsuit to overturn 2020's results. The claims of widespread non-citizen voting in 2016 being pushed by Trump and Johnson are not backed by evidence. Johnson faces challenges to his Speakership from Trump allies like Marjorie Taylor Greene.
