One-time Trump artist Chris Christie strongly denounced former President Donald Trump on Sunday for his false assertion that the vice president has the legal authority to change election results.
Furthermore, the former New Jersey governor mocked the disgraced former president for inadvertently telling the truth and admitted that he wants the 2020 presidential election to be overturned on January 6.
In recent days, Trump has increasingly targeted former Vice President Mike Pence for thwarting Trump’s pressure campaign to deny electoral votes as Congress meets to certify the President’s election victory. President Joe Biden. Besides making false claims, Pence may have “overturned the election,” The twice impeached former president also urged House Select Committee January 6 to probe reasons for not keeping Trump in office
“The No Choice Committee should investigate why Nancy Pelosi did such a poor job of security oversight and why Mike Pence did not return the ballots for recertification or approval where it was approved. prove that he clearly has the right to do so! ” Trump exclaimed in an angry statement last week.
Pence, who confessed last month that he didn’t say terms to Trump, responded by offering his strongest rebuke to Trump. “President Trump was wrong,” Pence said at a Federation of Federations event last week. “I have no right to overturn the election.”
During the Sunday broadcast of ABC This week, Christie — who was many times punished Trump gives peddlers vote lies and inciting rioters to storm the US Capitol—Pence applauds for finally speaking out against Trump’s outrageous rhetoric.
“I don’t know why it took him so long, but I’m so glad he did,” Christie declared. “Let’s face it. Call it what it is. January 6 was a riot provoked by Donald Trump in an attempt to intimidate Mike Pence and Congress into doing exactly what he said last week. : Subvert the election.” Former federal prosecutor, who is transparently considering the 2024 presidential election, then points out that this is the rare case where the former president doesn’t like the honest truth to change. In this case, Trump has said that he has indeed lost to Biden and is doing everything he can to stay in power.
“He actually told the truth by accident,” he snapped. “He wants the election to be overturned.”
Christie continued: “Donald Trump responded to what the vice president said, and I think it was like a kid standing in the corner holding his breath. It’s immature, and it’s underneath the office he’s been holding.”
In a statement on Friday, Trump — who came up with the idea of an amnesty for the January 6 rioters—Amazing that Pence acted as “an automatic conveyor belt for Old Crow Mitch McConnell to get Biden elected President as quickly as possible,” dropping his new moniker for the minority leader in the Senate. “In other words, I was right and everyone knows it,” the former president added.
Clinging to Trump, The Republican National Committee recently censored GOP delegates. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger for joining the committee on January 6 and stated that they were engaging in “the persecution of ordinary citizens who engage in legitimate political discourse”. Republican leaders have since tried to clarify that language and insist they were referring to Capitol rioters, even though the resolution itself did not make that distinction.
“From my front row, I don’t see many legitimate political speeches,” Pence’s former chief of staff, Marc Short said in response to RNC on Sunday Meet the press. Short, along with other Pence staffers, also cooperated with the committee on January 6.
