We must strike back, and we will do so using every tool at our disposal. But we’ll carry that out within the bounds of the law,” Johnson declared. “We have faith in our establishments. 

As conservatives, we are working to preserve the greatest nation in world history. And a big component of that is its institutions. An essential component of that is our justice system,” he continued.

Conservatives were incensed last week when Trump was convicted guilty on 34 felony counts of manipulating business documents in a Manhattan courtroom. Bream emphasised assertions made by certain conservatives that initiating criminal charges against Democratic lawmakers is the appropriate course of action.
