Christ Christie Rips Trump Legal Team as ‘National Embarrassment’

Christie has long been an ally of the President’s, which makes this latest statement so peculiar.

While President Trump continues his fight for another term in the White House, a number of prominent Republicans are pushing back against the idea that it’s even possible.

This slow erosion of belief in President Trump’s claims about the 2020 election has been picking up pace in recent days, as an increasing number of conservative voices begin to suggest that the incumbent President will not be receiving a second term.

Now, one of the President’s previous allies is pushing back on his attempts to remain in power as well, lambasting the Trump legal team’s behavior.

Anchor George Stephanopoulos said, “Last night we saw Pat Toomey, the Senator for Pennsylvania say it’s time for the president to enable this transition. It’s time for the president to concede. The president’s response was to attack Pat Toomey on Twitter. Is it finally time for this to end?

Christie said, “Yes, and here’s the reason why. The president has had an opportunity to access the courts, and I said to you starting at 2:30 a.m. on Thursday, if you have got the evidence of fraud, present it. What’s happened here, quite frankly, the conduct of the president’s legal team has been a national embarrassment. Sidney Powell accusing Brian Kemp of a crime on television, yet being unwilling to go on TV and defend and lay out the evidence that she supposedly has. This is outrageous by any lawyer and notice, George. They won’t do it inside the courtroom. They allege fraud outside the courtroom, but when they go inside the courtroom, they don’t plead fraud, and they don’t argue fraud. This is what I was concerned about at 2:30 in the morning on Wednesday night.”

Christie has long been a supporter of President Trump, even helping him to prep for the first 2020 presidential debate between he and Joe Biden.
