( – Ken Block, a voter data specialist employed by the Trump campaign in 2020 to investigate allegations of voter fraud, has publicly critiqued House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) for his statements regarding election integrity. During a segment on CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront,” hosted by Jim Sciutto, Block expressed his disapproval, noting that as a lawyer, Johnson should recognize the weakness of hearsay evidence in legal settings. Block emphasized that such unsubstantiated claims undermine confidence in the electoral system.

Johnson has consistently supported the baseless assertion by former President Donald Trump that the 2020 election was fraudulent. The day after the election, Johnson took to the social media platform X to voice his encouragement to Trump: “Stay strong and keep fighting, sir! The nation relies on your determination. We must pursue every legal avenue available to reaffirm the American people’s trust in our electoral process,” he posted.

Furthermore, Johnson led an amicus brief, endorsed by over 100 House Republicans, in support of a Texas lawsuit presented to the U.S. Supreme Court. This lawsuit sought to invalidate the election outcomes in several states, including Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

At a press conference held at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, Johnson and Trump introduced a legislative proposal prohibiting non-U.S. citizens from voting—a measure that reinforces existing law. During the event, when questioned about a motion by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) to remove him from his role as Speaker, Trump praised Johnson’s performance. “I think he’s doing a very good job, as well as anyone could expect, and I’m sure Marjorie recognizes that too,” Trump remarked, acknowledging Greene’s respect for Johnson.
