In a recent interview on Morning Joe, Chris Christie, a prominent Republican figure and presidential candidate, delivered a stark assessment of the potential consequences facing former President Donald Trump in light of Mark Meadows’ decision to testify. Christie characterized Meadows’ agreement to testify as a “deadly” development for Trump, underscoring the seriousness of the situation.
When questioned about Trump’s recent blunders, which the show had humorously compiled into a scathing montage, Christie attributed these missteps to the mounting stress induced by the looming legal challenges. According to Christie, this strain primarily stems from the weight of Trump’s impending legal troubles.
Reflecting on the significance of Meadows’ decision to testify, Christie emphasized the gravity of the situation, highlighting the fact that immunity is not typically granted unless the evidence is exceptionally robust. Drawing from his own experience, Christie emphasized the significance of this move, cautioning Republican voters to grasp the significance of the impending events in March. With Meadows set to appear in a Washington, D.C. courtroom, Christie painted a vivid picture of the potential revelation of crimes committed by Trump during his time in office, with Meadows as a firsthand witness.
Christie didn’t mince words about the potential ramifications for Trump, asserting that the implications of Meadows’ testimony could be fatal for the former president. Recounting Meadows’ steadfast loyalty and close association with Trump throughout the 2020 campaign and subsequent events, Christie underscored the gravity of the situation, expressing a conviction that the ultimate outcome for Trump appears grim, with conviction seeming imminent.
“I think it’s the stress of what he knows is coming and his criminal problems,” Christie said. He added, “That’s all post-Mark Meadows (agreeing to testify). And I think everybody watching needs to understand from somebody who did this work for seven years, you don’t give Mark Meadows immunity unless the evidence he has is unimpeachable. And I said this yesterday: I want all Republican voters to understand this. What’s going to be happening in March? He’s to be sitting in a courtroom, Washington, D.C., with Mark Meadows 20 feet away from him saying he committed crimes in front of me on my watch.”
Christie went on to say that he believes the implications for Trump are “deadly.”
“Look, this is a guy who was Velcroed to Trump’s hip for the entire 2020 campaign and all the post-campaign nonsense,” Christie said. “And so this is deadly. It’s done. He’s going to be convicted. It’s over.”
