Townhall reported that House Speaker Mike Johnson is implementing measures to ensure accountability within the justice system in response to the recent conviction of former President Donald Trump:

Johnson announced a “three-pronged approach” on Tuesday that aims to crack down on the Department of Justice’s “weaponization” against Trump. 

The proposal comes after a Manhattan jury found Trump guilty of 34 counts of falsifying business records, as well as two federal cases led by special counsel Jack Smith and charges in Fulton County, Georgia led by District Attorney Fani Willis. 

The plan will focus on three pillars, including the appropriations process, legislation brought to the floor and Congress’s oversight authority. Johnson reportedly briefed Trump on the plan ahead of announcing it to the House GOP conference.
