Chris Christie: I warned Trump about Flynn

(CNN) New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said on Monday that if it were up to him, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn never would have had a White House job.

After ending his own presidential bid in 2016, Christie was one of the first major Republican figures to endorse Donald Trump and served as the head of his transition team before being replaced by Vice President Mike Pence after the election.

"I think it's safe to say that General Flynn and I didn't see eye-to eye," Christie told reporters at a news conference in Trenton, New Jersey. "I didn't think that he was someone who would bring benefit to the President or to the administration, and I made that very clear to candidate Trump, and I made it very clear to President-elect Trump."

1. Maybe that's why Christie wasn't hired for any WH job.

The way things are looking now, he should be thanking his lucky stars for that.

4. This is no laughing matter. What did Christie know about Flynn

and was he fired because he pushed back because of knowledge of illegal activities? And if so, is this why Pence replaced him as head of the transition team. And when Pence replaced him, did Pence agree to stay silent.

I'm seeing conspiracy every where these days.

6. They were warned

We know that Obama warned Trump, personally.

My take on this is that Trump yearns to prove that Obama's decisions were all wrong. So, time and again, Trump does the opposite and things go to hell in a hand basket.

But the bottom line is that the new administration was warned and chose to ignore the obvious.

8. I was just chiming in regarding the serious nature of all of this

As for conspiracy, hopefully the investigations will scour to the corners for all the rats involved.

10. They all knew. They all are in cahoots. Exception, IMO: Christie. I don't think he has a Russian

 

connection.
