Gov. Christie: Meadows Jan 6 Testimony Will Convict Trump in D.C. Case
Chris Christie explained why Mark Meadows could singlehandedly get Donald Trump convicted of inciting the Jan. 6 insurrection.
Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie may only be polling at 2% in the race for the Republican 2024 nomination for president at this point, but he is predicting that the race will go down to the wire and only be decided at the Republican nomination in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, from July 15-18, 20.
If news reports are correct, the former White House chief of staff has been granted immunity by special counsel Jack Smith in the District of Columbia January 6 case against disgraced former president Trump according to Christie who told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" today that Meadows would be a compelling witness who could ultimately land Trump in prison and wipe him from the 2024 ballot.
"I want everybody to be prepared for a very long race. This is a race that's going to go all the way to the convention. I'm going to be in this all the way to the convention because here is what is going to happen. In March, Donald Trump, the day before 'Super Tuesday,' is going on trial, and the first witness against him, sitting 20 feet away from him in a courtroom, is not going to be some rogue Democrat; it is not going to be some product of the two-tier justice system.
“It will be Mark Meadows, one of the founders of the Freedom Caucus from North Carolina, and one of his chiefs of staff. The chief of staff, he said, was like James Baker."
"He's going to be saying in front of a jury that Donald Trump was lying beginning on Election Night, that he knew he was lying, and that he broke laws right in front of him," Christie added. "Donald Trump is going to be convicted, and what that New York Times poll from earlier this week shows you is that when he is convicted of a crime, his support collapses, especially in all of the swing states that he was doing well in, but after a conviction, he will lose every one of those states to Joe Biden. Republican voters are going to get smart about that. They're going to see it and not make him our nominee, but we're going to have to fight it all the way to the convention."
