Chris Christie On Trump's Legal Hijinks: 'It's Absurd'

Description

Business Insider reports former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Sunday had sharp words for President Donald Trump's legal team. Christie told Martha Radditz on ABC's 'This Week' that the team's approach to overturning the election results was 'an absurdity.' It's an absurd idea to think that any state, or any number of states, no matter how good they are, can challenge another state's right to run the election as they see fit. Chris Christie Former Governor of the State of New Jersey Friday, the Supreme Court declined to hear the GOP-backed lawsuit brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton due to lack of standing. In addition to Paxton, 17 state attorneys general and 126 Congressional Republicans had signed an amicus brief backing the lawsuit. "The reason the Supreme Court is not taking this is not because of a lack of courage. It's for the same reason that every court has thrown this out. It's a lack of evidence and a lack of any type of legal theory that makes any sense."

  • Trump Ally Chris Christie Calls Trump's Legal Team 'A National Embarrassment'

    In a bid to overturn the presidential election, President Donald Trump has set his legal team upon courtrooms across the country. The team, including former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, has consistently made claims of widespread voter fraud--without any verifiable evidence. Now, former New Jersey governor and Trump ally Chris Christie says the President's legal team is 'a national embarrassment.' On ABC's 'This Week,' Christie, a Republican, said Trump's attorneys have had ample opportunities to present solid evidence of any voting irregularities. They allege fraud outside the courtroom, but inside the courtroom they don't plead fraud and they don't argue fraud. Chris Christie

Trump's lawyers concluded their presentation in roughly three hours.

Krebs drew President Donald Trump's wrath when he defied Trump's claims of voter fraud, saying the 2020 election 'was the most secure in American history.' DiGenova is a Trump campaign lawyer, who Trump recruited after seeing him on Fox News. In an interview on 'The Howie Carr Show' on Monday, diGenova pubicly called Krebs an 'idiot' and a 'class-A moron,' and called for his execution. ...He should be drawn and quartered. Taken out at dawn and shot. Attorney Joe DiGenova Trump campaign legal team member DiGenova walked back his comments on Tuesday, saying, 'It was obvious that my remarks were sarcastic and made in jest.' But Krebs was clearly unamused. I've got an exceptional team of lawyers that win in court and I think they're probably going to be busy. Chris Krebs

  • A Sheepish Chris Christie Says COVID-19 Had Him Spend A Week In ICU

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Thursday he spent 7 days in an ICU before recovering from COVID-19. CNN reports Christie issued a statement detailing the severity of his case. It also urged people to take the pandemic seriously. Christie had coached President Donald Trump multiple times for his first debate with Democratic challenger Joe Biden. Christie tested positive a day after Trump announced he and first lady Melania Trump had both tested positive for the virus. Christie sheepishly admitted he'd made a mistake in choosing to believe the White House was a safe place, and regretted not wearing a mask at a Rose Garden event. I hope that my experience shows my fellow citizens that you should follow CDC guidelines in public no matter where you are, and wear a mask to protect yourself and others. Chris Christie
