Trump said firing Flynn would end 'Russia thing,' Christie writes

I know you like him, but he's just not temperamentally fit to do this.' And this was one of about a half a dozen conversations I had with the president, you know, between June or July of 2016 and election day about Mike Flynn including, up to and including the day after election day when I saw the president for the last time before I was sacked as transition chairman where I said to him, 'This is a big mistake, if you do this with Flynn.' He told me he was doing it.

Christie is out touting his new book, "Let Me Finish: Trump, the Kushners, Bannon, New Jersey, and the Power of In-Your-Face Politics".

Christie dropped his presidential bid he went on the endorse Trump ― becoming one of the first well-known Republicans to do so ― and Hostin wanted to know how he could support someone who had thrown him under the bus over Bridgegate.

McCain took the opportunity to bring up Christie once stating that Trump was "exactly what the country needed".

In a final, biting question, Colbert cited Christie's record-low 15 percent approval rating as governor and asked: "Who is your constituency now?"

"I mean it's one of the most loathsome, disgusting crimes that I prosecuted when I was U.S. attorney".

Trump allegedly argued, saying that Christie was doing his job: "He was doing what he was supposed to be doing, your father pled guilty".

Christie said he laughed and insisted the issue was "far from over".

The elder Kushner plead guilty to 16 counts of tax evasion, one count of retaliating against a federal witness, and another count of lying to the Federal Election Commission. A tape of the encounter was then sent to Kushner's sister and Schulder's wife, Esther.

"Jared then began to tell him why - and the why was because I had been, in his words, unfair to his father and therefore untrustworthy and that the crimes that his father was accused of were, as Jared put it at the time, family matters that should have been dealt with by the family or by the rabbis..." Because sometimes in politics, things don't go the way you expect.

"I had been running against him and trying to beat him for however long, six to eight months, however long that was", Christie explained. So after two years, "do you regret at all helping this man get elected?"
