Christie: Comey would have fired me for doing what he did

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by muriel_volestrangler (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said Sunday that if his and former FBI Director James Comey’s roles had been reversed in the 2016 election, Comey would have fired him.
Christie homed in on comments by Comey saying that polling showing Hillary Clinton leading President Trump had led him to believe that Clinton would be elected president.
This in turn influenced Comey's decision to effectively reopen an investigation into whether Clinton had sent classified information through a personal server she used as secretary of State 11 days before the election, a decision Clinton and her aides have said cost her the White House.


“When I worked for Jim, if I had said to him 11 days before an election that I was going to release information that could potentially affect the election, and one of the things that influenced me was polling, he would have fired me. He would have fired me on the spot,” Christie said during an appearance on ABC's "This

2. Maybe one day Christie would like to tell us

why he walked away from this dumpster fire known as the Trump administration.

3. hell freezes over, chris christie is actually right about something.

comey's after-the-fact rationalization of his inexcusable actions is laughably false.

there's zero chance comey did it because he wanted to do hillary a political favor, based on polling and based on his perception of the perceived legitimacy of a hillary presidency had waited until he determined if there were any new emails before making the information public.

the excuse is a lie, made up after the fact, because comey can't admit (possibly to himself) that he caved to republican pressure.

that said, christie's right. comey's violated at least two doj policies knowing it would have an impact on the election. claiming it was to help hillary's legitimacy doesn't make it any less of a violation of doj policies.

4. I find it somewhat difficult to except Christie is right

given that man brought down the full weight of his power through the chain of corruption down upon a mayor who is and was not a wheeling,deal'n savvy politician, and who as it so happens, refused to jump into the deal because it was not the right thing to do.

5. Chris Christie sure as hell isn't close to being *always* right

He just happens to be right in this one instance.

Outside of that, he's a model of corrupt and inept politics.

7. So let's hypothetically say Comey did something wrong and was fired for that...

Does that invalidate all of his other testimony?

Is that why Trump is firing people left and right...so nobody will believe what they say? Because he is such a shrewd judge of character?

Trump has the mind of a sociopathic con-artist. Firing people at the end of the week doesn't remove them from existence like on THE APPRENTICE.

But you're right. There is a lot to criticize Christie over. Calling him fat is fucking pedantic and only diminishes the folks who write such drivel

17. Here is a thought

name ONE woman who would be hired as a TV contributor, if she looked like Christie? Why not criticize his weight? Didn't taxpayers foot the bill for his weight loss surgery? Didn't he close the beaches on a holiday weekend , then take his entire family to the beach to enjoy the weekend? He dodged the bullet for the bridge fiasco. If he will not face responsivbility for the errors in judgement he makes, then at least give us the satisfaction of pointing out that he is a glutton.

14. I suppose it's all in how you see it.

And I think there is more to it than we know. Regarding Christie, I think it is appalling that the networks will give him a venue to spill out his over inflated right trump wing talking points. After all, it was Christie who called Rubio a slim ball at Christie's last appearance as a candidate during the primaries. So Trump takes the low ,calls Comey a slim ball and Christie goes high putting on his gentleman act. Christie's loyalty is all too obvious. And oh, he really did fool a lot of people with that act. Call that tag teaming,because that's just what it is. Christie wants that dream job real bad. And Trump, he's holding the carrot.

16. Why was he really fired in your view? No snark intended, just hope to save some googling

That may or may not agree with your observations and conclusions.

Thanks mate.

18. Locking - the hosts feel this is just opinion, from someone who no longer holds elected office

but is a paid commentator on TV; that he has an opinion is not news. Please reports in GD. Thanks.
