Chris Christie: 'I wouldn't let General Flynn in the White House'

Chris Christie: 'I wouldn't let General Flynn in the White House'

Chris Christie, like every other self-interested Republican who either endorsed or looked the other way, now owns Donald Trump.

The remark has been interpreted as suggesting that the president fired Comey because of the FBI's investigation into Russia's interference in last year's election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

Gov. Chris Christie touted New Jersey employment gains on Monday during a Statehouse news conference at which he also warned voters to choose his successor carefully or risk undoing the economic progress made during his almost eight-year tenure.

Assemblyman John Wisniewski, one of the Democratic candidates for governor who has filed a lawsuit to try to stop the project, said Monday the governor's comment showed Christie was using the development authority to improperly issue new debt. "I think it's safe to say that General Flynn and I didn't see eye-to eye". This warnings came when Christie served as chairman of Trump's transition team and before the team was made aware that Flynn, who served briefly as Trump's national security adviser, was under federal investigation.

President Trump appointed Flynn as national security adviser, but he was quickly ousted after it was revealed he misled Vice President Pence and other top officials about his meetings with Russia's USA ambassador.

Christie also said he disagreed with Trump's reported characterization of former FBI Director James Comey as a "nut job". Trump said Flynn misled top officials about his contacts with Russian officials. He declined to offer details, citing restrictions on classified information, but said he did not view Flynn as "someone who would bring benefit to the president or to the administration".

Christie makes it clear that there is no love lost between himself and Flynn.

"I have nothing but great respect for him", said Christie, who as USA attorney for New Jersey dealt with Mueller in the time after the September 11 terrorist attacks.

NBC News had reported that Christie told Flynn to pipe down during an intelligence briefing during the campaign, on August 17, but the governor again denied that report on Monday.

Christie on Monday held forth with reporters for more than an hour, taking credit for the state's improved economic outlook, musing about the governor's race, and diving into national politics.

Ciattarelli has attacked the administration's record and said: "We need to move beyond the Christie-Guadagno era".

A total of 4.3 million New Jersey residents are now working, a historic high, Christie said.
