Christie says Trump legal team ‘a national embarrassment’


Christie, who served as a U.S. attorney for New Jersey under the Bush administration, was a contender for the Trump administration’s attorney general post.

Trump’s legal team, which features Rudy Giuliani, was chastised in a ruling Saturday on Pennsylvania election processes by U.S. District Judge Matthew Brann, who said of their claims, “This is simply not how the Constitution works.” In a lengthy news conference Friday, Giuliani — a former New York mayor and also a former U.S. attorney — and his fellow campaign attorneys offered an incoherent collection of conspiracy theories, unsupported by evidence or detail.

Christie noted that the president’s legal team alleges fraud outside of the courtroom but “when they go inside the courtroom, they don’t plead fraud and they don’t argue fraud.”

“I have been a supporter of the president’s,” Christie said. “I voted for him twice, but elections have consequences, and we cannot continue to act as if something happened here that didn’t happen.

“You have an obligation to present the evidence. The evidence has not been presented, and you must conclude, as Tucker Carlson even concluded the other night, that if you are unwilling to come forward and present the evidence, it must mean the evidence doesn’t exist.”
