House Speaker Mike Johnson is scheduled to join former President Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida for an election integrity announcement event on Friday.

The event, which was reported by multiple news outlets, will be Johnson's first public outing with Trump since he became House speaker in October 2023.

Specific details about the announcement are unclear, but election integrity has been a prominent issue for Trump and the Republican Party for years, and it gained momentum after the 2020 election. 

Meanwhile, Johnson, a Louisiana Republican, is at risk of losing his position as speaker after Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene filed a motion to vacate late last month in an effort to remove him in response to the passage of a $1.2 trillion spending bill.

Johnson tried contacting Greene during the congressional break, but he said she "wasn't interested." The two met Wednesday after Congress reconvened, but Greene still maintained her threat to oust Johnson.
