Chris Christie Calls Trump Campaign Legal Team a ‘National Embarrassment’

It is more than two weeks after the Nov. 3 general election, and President Donald Trump and his campaign are continuing to claim that there was widespread fraud that tilted the results in favor of President-elect Joe Biden

Last week, lawyers for the campaign held a press conference to lay out unfounded and baseless claims that the fraud was organized across several states.

During an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) was asked if it is time for Trump to stop contesting the results and concede the election.

“Yes,” Christie responded. “The president has had an opportunity to access the courts, and I said to you, you know George, starting at 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning, if you’ve got the evidence of fraud, present it.”

He added, “And what’s happened here is quite frankly, the conduct of the president’s legal team has been a national embarrassment.” 

Watch the video below:

Christie continued to noted that Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell accused Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) of a crime related to the election. However, she has been “being unwilling to go on TV and defend and lay out the evidence that she supposedly has.”

“This is outrageous conduct by any lawyer and notice George, they won’t do it inside the courtroom,” he added.

Christie explained that while Trump campaign lawyers have used press conferences to claim that there was fraud, they have not been arguing that there was fraud in court.

Additionally, he argued that the campaign has an “obligation” to present their evidence of fraud. 

“I’ve been a supporter of the president. 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.”

He continued, “I said it on election night, and I hope more say it going forward because the country is what has to matter the most as much as I’m a strong Republican, and I love my party, it’s the country that has to come first.”

  1. Choo Choo Cherry. I’ve noticed you have nothing factual to add to the debate. Just nasty put downs by a nasty “woman” if that’s what you are. Christie was helping trump with debate prep but after he got really sick with Covid, he saw the writing on the wall. Trump is causing the needless deaths of thousands of Americans by checking out in his responsibilities as president.

  2. Election day was Nov. 3rd, it’s now the 22nd. How is this rushing everything through? Trumpers are embarrasing to this country, you are all delusional. It’s over, Biden won. Why is it that anyone who has a mind of their own in the Republican party is a RINO. Trumpers are NOT Republicans, you should start your own party!!!

  3. I guess voter fraud by Democrats should just be overlooked by all the people who voted for Trump. Let’s just rush everything through. This reminds me of all the shenanigans by Obama and Hillary that never would have been discovered if Hillary would have won. Bernie supporters may be interested in possible voter fraud by Clinton. but, Bernie got his millions so it’s all good.
