“I’m the only person in this room who has prosecuted obstruction of justice cases and won. They are very difficult to prove,” Christie said.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie fiercely defended President Donald Trump speaking at a NJ Transit facility
“New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie fiercely defended on Wednesday President Donald Trump‘s right to fire FBI Director James Comey and argued that reports of a bombshell Comey memo on Trump were “speculation.”
Christie, a former federal prosecutor, denied speculation that he may be vying for the now-open FBI director role with an emphatic “no,” adding that he’ll be finishing out his term, which ends next January.
He seemed to offer some veiled advice to the administration in an apparent reference to the deluge of leaks plaguing the White House.
The New Jersey governor also had some words for members of Congress who plan to bring impeachment charges against the President in the wake of the Comey memo revelation.
“I’m the only person in this room who has prosecuted obstruction of justice cases and won. They are very difficult to prove,” Christie said.”
Do you agree with Christie that it’s very difficult to prove President Trump obstructed justice?
