Chris Christie Says Trump Legal Team a National Embarrassment

Trump Legal Team-ss-featured

A major ally of the President just called the Trump legal team a national embarrassment. Former New Jersey governor Chris Christie also said it’s time for them to end attempts to overturn election results. Christie said Trump’s lawyers failed to provide any evidence of fraud. And at this point, he thinks it may be time to put the needs of the country first.

In an interview with ABC, Christie declared “If you have got the evidence of fraud, present it,” he said. Also, Christie called out the legal team’s efforts in attacking Republican governors. They accused these governors of not taking a stand on claims of voter fraud. 

A National Embarrassment

Christie deplored the conduct of Trump’s lawyers. He said, “Quite frankly, the conduct of the President’s legal team has been a national embarrassment.” In particular, he identified lawyer, Sidney Powell. Powell accused Georgia GOP Governor Brian Kemp of allowing fraud to happen in the state. 

At the behest of team Trump, Georgia will count the state’s presidential votes again. Last week, Georgia certified the results, declaring Biden the winner by 12,670 votes. However, since the lead was less than 0.5%, the losing team can request a recount. Experts believe the recount won’t change the results.

‘Outrageous Conduct’

Christie exclaimed that “This is outrageous conduct by any lawyer.” He said Trump attorneys kept accusing voter fraud, then promising to submit evidence. But so far, nothing has come out in the form of proof. He noted, “They allege fraud outside the courtroom, but when they go inside the courtroom, they don’t plead fraud and they don’t argue fraud.” 

The former NJ governor remains a staunch Republican. “Listen, I have 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.” He thinks it’s time to move on. “If you are unwilling to come forward and present the evidence, it must mean the evidence doesn’t exist,” he said. He suggested the Trump team look at what’s important, saying “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.” 

Other Republicans Joining in

Hogan was wrong, though. Other Republicans have joined in the move to start the transition. These include notable Republicans such as Rep. Paul Mitchell of Michigan and Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. Republican Congressman Fred Upton of Michigan stressed the need for a smooth transfer. The absence of a transition creates needless uncertainty for the next administration.

The Maryland governor told CNN’s “Inside Politics” that “by not allowing the security briefings, the health briefings, the normal transition from one president to the next only brings about more uncertainty and threatens that peaceful transition that would otherwise — that would certainly undermine, then, the next administration. When you slow it down, when you fail to certify the results when you add all this uncertainty, it only makes it very problematic, then, for the next administration to start with their feet hitting the ground,” Upton said.

‘Time for Them to Stop the Nonsense’

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, also a Republican, echoed Christie’s statements. He appeared in CNN’s “State of the Union” and called out fellow Republicans for not speaking up. He wondered why there aren’t more Republicans who spoke up about his “bizarre” moves. 

Hogan recalled their previous experience with elections. “We used to go supervise elections around the world, and we were the most respected, you know, the country with respect to elections. And now we’re beginning to look like we’re a banana republic. It’s time for them to stop the nonsense,” he said. He also said Trump’s meeting with Republican members of the Michigan State Legislature as “completely outrageous.” 

Powell Out

Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis said their third member is out. They announced that Lawyer Sidney Powell is “on her own.” A week earlier, Trump announced via Twitter and welcomed Powell to his legal team. Powell also joined the colorful press conference at the Republican National Committee headquarters. 

Powell confirmed his exit from the team. “I agree with the campaign’s statement that I am not part of the campaign’s legal team,” Powell said in a statement. “I never signed a retainer agreement or sent the President or the campaign a bill for my expenses or fees. My intent has always been to expose all the fraud I could find and let the chips fall where they may–whether it be upon Republicans or Democrats,” she added. She promised to file an “epic” lawsuit later this week.

Watch this as ABC News reports that Republicans begin speaking out against Trump as he refuses to concede:

Should Trump and his legal team accept the election results at this point?

    As we all know Trump won this election……..It’s upsetting that we have people in this world who have to cheat. If this was a fair election and Biden won fairly then the people I’m sure would embrace it, however he did not.. Its sad to know that this is what our country is allowing.

  • MarilynD says:

    Let’s move on and get back to Caring About One Another. What a Wonderful World It could be.

    No proof of fowl play, time to accept defeat and move on gracefully. It’s embarrassing how he’s acting.

  • Gerald says:

    I’m a poll watcher and BY LAW, they have to let us watch the voting and to do otherwise, they are breaking the law and the Judge of Elections should have been arrested and charged accordingly. Philadelphia, Pa and Detroit, Mi. are KNOWN for being corrupt, and have been for years and years. What a MONIKER to have, not only for your city, but also your state. We sure have a BUNCH of SICK people in our country to put up with these IDIOTS!!!

  • David says:

    I think the Republicans lawyers should announce and produce their evidence now….put up or shut up. I don’t like what happened. I don’t know how you can win an election from your basement. I fear what these democrats will do. I think clintons, Obama’s, pelosi Omar, Cortez to mention a small handful are disgusting people. I deplore them, is an understatement. Let the Democrats kill themselves and they will. The people will see what they really are and soon realize they’ve been tricked and lied to hopefully people will then wake up. I hope the republicans hold on to the senate majority and block their radical ideas. I hope they ride BIDENS back for 4 years and make everyone miserable, like they did to trump.
    America will again give and give to countries and people who aren’t deserving…we will be weak. The reason foreign countries are happy that trump could very well be gone, is because they want the free handouts at your exspense.
    Reload republicans and find worthy people to nominate in 2024 and reverse the radical doings of the crazy, evil, corrupt democrats. They all are corrupt, but dems put it to a new disturbing level.

  • Peter Luciano says:

    Al Gore vs Bush took 37 days via court system before Gore conceded.. It the demonic democrats have nothing to hide, then we will pursue this through the US Supreme Court.
    Remember, Trump is STILL OUR PRESIDENT and Biden is still FORMER vp AND nOT THE PRESIDENT ELECT AS THE FAKE NEWS IS SAYING.ABC news has been and is biased AS WE HAVE SEEN DURING THE LAST FOUR YEARS.
    we will continue to fight and expose the frauD that is taking place during this election.
    REMEMBER, GOD IS ON THE SIDE OF TRUTH AND RIGHTEOUSNESS NOT FAIRY TALES AND OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE BECAUSE THE NEWS MEDIA HAS BEEN CORRUPTED BY THE MOB.
    ” IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE MEDIA TO SPREAD TRUTH, TO EXTOL VIRTUE AND TO EXPOSE AND RESTRAIN EVIL”

  • Mepa says:

Disappointed in you Chris Christy!!! Shame on you!!!!!

  • Jack says:

    Trump is President until Jan 20th, we know it was crooked, but if it can’t be proved , then we have to suffer as a country for 4 years. If we allow foreign voting machines in the future then we are brain dead and deserve what we get.

  • Amador Lopez - Silverwolf says:

    Collins and Murkowski are nothing but RINO’S they are turncoat puppets for the democrats these two sell-outs need to be replaced by New Young Conservative Republicans who will stand with the President, the Senate, and Congress. Collins & Murkowski are career politicians they are an embarrassment to the Republican party the only thing you can count on these two senators is that you can’t count on them to stand with the President. As for the congressman we need to find new leaders to replace the Republican Congress Rhino’s
    Term limits for the senate and congress

  • FedUp says:

    I think there will be a war between democrats and republicans if President Trump isn’t declared the winner. He had so many people at his rallies and Biden/Harris couldn’t get a dozen people attending their rallies. I felt sorry for them but not enough to make the country socialist!

  • Darren says:

    Spoken from someone who is a life-long. national embarrassment.

  • Philip Peter Worrall says:

    Just look at the facts, One Nation under God. I guess this is the kind of talk Sisters and Brothers have. We are not murders but one National family. Love is the only answer .
