Chris Christie has a checkered past as far as supporting President Trump, but his instincts are generally good and he knows politics as well as anyone.
I was happy to hear Christie, former governor of New Jersey, advising President Trump on “This Week With George Stephanopoulos” to “embrace” the New York Times report that the FBI had launched a counterintelligence investigation into Trump after he fired FBI Director James Comey.
“It backs up his narrative. His narrative is that FBI agents were acting in a rogue manner, over stepping the normal course of business because they had something against him, and that story is an extraordinary story — that they would open a counterintelligence investigation against the president of the United Stares — and I think it backs up some of the narratives the president has talked about. So if I were him … I’d say wait a second, this is what I’ve been saying all along… the FBI under Jim Comey was out of control.”
Christie was also right to question the Democrat investigation of Trump for meeting privately with Putin. He accurately noted that Trump can’t trust those around him and that he has met privately with many other leaders as well. He should have also pointed out that transcripts of private conversations with other heads of state had been leaked to the press by disloyal apparatchiks in the Deep State.
