OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author’s opinion.


House Speaker Mike Johnson has offered a big prediction ahead of November’s presidential election.

Speaking with the Lehigh Valley News, the GOP Speaker predicted that Republicans would keep the House and take back the Senate and White House.

“We’re going to flip some seats back to Republican hands, and this one will be as well. We are really excited about Ryan’s campaign,” Johnson said, giving Mackenzie a light punch in the arm. “We can’t wait to have him join us in Congress.”

Johnson’s comments come as Trump was convicted last week on charges that legal experts from both the right and the left have deemed to be 34 contrived felonies related to a pre-election hush money payment made to a porn star before his 2016 victory.

And instantly, his campaign’s fundraising skyrocketed.

The Trump campaign has reportedly raised over $200 million in donations, a financial surge that includes nearly $53 million raised in the immediate aftermath of the verdict.

The total dollar amount includes contributions pledged by Republican megadonor Miriam Adelson, who intends to invest tens of millions of dollars in a pro-Trump SuperPAC after evaluating other candidates during the primary. In 2020, the late Sheldon Adelson, a casino billionaire, and his wife were the top donors to the Preserve America PAC, contributing over $90 million to support Trump’s campaign.

According to a report from Politico, Adelson plans to contribute upwards of $100 million to Trump’s campaign once again. Adelson, the principal shareholder of Las Vegas Sands and a majority stakeholder in the Dallas Mavericks alongside her son-in-law, has an estimated net worth of $33.3 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

After his conviction, the Trump campaign raised over $50 million in just a few hours. This amount exceeded President Biden’s total fundraising for the entire month of May.

Meanwhile, top-rated SiriusXM podcaster Megyn Kelly criticized Democratic prosecutors, politicians, and voters who supported the prosecution and conviction of Trump.

She also said GOP district attorneys and prosecutors should now do the same to top Democratic figures.

“This whole scheme, and here it is the proper word, is corrupt. It’s a before and after moment for America. What just happened today is a line we can’t uncross, and these Democrats will rue the day they decided to use lawfare to stop a presidential candidate,” she said (see video below).

“I’m not talking about violence; I’m talking about tit for tat. You just wait, and it won’t be Hunter Biden next time; it’s going to be Joe Biden. It could potentially still be Barack Obama. It could still potentially be Hillary Clinton. We’re going to have to look at what the statutes of limitations are on the various crimes they surely committed,” Kelly predicted.

“We’re going to have to look at passing laws to revive those dead crimes, felonies, or misdemeanors so that those cases can be brought out of time. That’s what may be in the interest of justice, just like they did for E.J. Carroll with the New York State law that was passed so that she could sue him. That’s what happened,” she said. “Turnabout is fair play. And John Yoo, an amazing lawyer who worked in the Bush administration Department of Justice, has a great piece out today talking about how that’s the only way they’ll learn.”

“I’m sorry, but the Democrats started this game. In the same way, the Republicans upped the ante when it came to, for example, the filibuster fight. The Democrats got rid of it for lower court judges. Mitch McConnell said you will rue the day because we’re going to be in control of this chamber one day, and you’re going to lose the filibuster at the higher-level court, and you’ll be sorry. That’s what needs to happen here,” she continued.

“Who’s getting indicted next? Joe Biden? Maybe Jill Biden? How low can we go? You may not want to see it, but that ship has already left port. That horse has left the barn. That’s where we’re going,” she said. “So before you celebrate too much over at MSNBC and CNN, who are positively gleeful over this absurd conviction, you wait and ask yourself, ask yourself what kind of Pandora’s box has been opened here?”
