Chris Christie: Trump should have kept me on team

NEWARK — Gov. Chris Christie said Wednesday that his removal as chairman of Donald Trump's presidential transition has proven to be a "big mistake" and that the country has paid for it.
Christie also said he thinks his opposition during the transition to naming retired Army Gen. Michael Flynn the national security adviser was a "significant reason" for his ouster last year, three days after Trump won the presidency in an upset over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
During the same news conference where he was asked about Flynn, Christie extended a dispute with his Democratic successor, Phil Murphy, about the authenticity of a document provided by his transition team concerning non-disclosure agreement.

11 new things we just learned about Chris Christie Posted November 17, 2017 at 06:03 PM Updated No

http://www.nj.com/politics/index.ssf/2017/11/10_takeaways_from_christies_big_interview.html#incart_river_index

. Chris Christie gave a one-on-one talk with Politico's Josh Dawsey last week for what the website billed as "an epic exit interview."
The interview was published Friday in Politico Magazine.  
Here are 11 highlights and new things we learned about the governor.


1. Christie thinks there's more to Bridgegate
The George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal shattered Christie's popularity in the state and delivered a big blow to his White House ambitions. Christie has never been directly tied to the scandal and he adamantly denies any involvement.
The admitted mastermind of the scandal, David Wildstein, told jurors it was a political revenge scheme against the mayor of Fort Lee for not endorsing Christie's re-election bid. His testimony helped convict a former top Christie administration official, Bridget Anne Kelly, and the governor's top appointee to the Port Authority, Bill Baroni.
But Christie thinks there's more to the story.
“I don’t even think the true story has ever been told about why it was done,” Christie said. “I don’t buy the fact and I’ve never bought the fact that this was done to penalize the mayor of Fort Lee.”
Christie wouldn't say what he thought happened, telling Politico he doesn't know.

Early Exit Polls: (Almost) Everybody Hates Christie

Early exit poll results in today’s race for New Jersey governor confirm: Chris Christie is the least popular governor in America.
Only 19 percent of New Jersey voters so far said they approve of the job Christie is doing, while a whopping 79 percent disapprove.
One year ago, during the 2016 general election, 72 percent of Jersey voters said they disapproved of Christie's performance

He's a maniac who's going to get us NUKED: JFK files reveal how the Soviet Union feared they were go

Source: Daily Mail


The Soviet Union feared they were going to get blamed for putting 'neurotic maniac' Lee Harvey Oswald up to assassinating John F Kennedy, one of more than 2,800 newly released assassination files has revealed.
The trove of files were published on the National Archives website Thursday night, but President Donald Trumphas kept at least 300 documents back so federal agencies can black out portions.
In one FBI document dated December 1, 1963, from director J Edgar Hoover, the agency reveals everything it has learned about the Soviet reaction to the JFK's assassinationand what its agents might have known about Oswald.
The tranche of documents reveal that the Soviets were just as obsessed with conspiracy theories surrounding Kennedy's death as the rest of the world.
'According to our source, officials of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union believed there was some well-organized conspiracy on the part of the 'ultraright' in the United States to effect a 'coup.''

Christie: Everybody knows now Trump Jr.'s meeting was a 'bad idea'

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a supporter and friend of President Donald Trump, said Sunday that Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer in June of last year was a bad idea, but everyone would be best served to wait for special counsel Robert Mueller's findings on the matter.
"This meeting was ill-advised," Christie said on CNN's "State of the Union." "This is not something that should have happened. ... Everybody in retrospect knew this was a bad idea."
Christie said it was not yet clear whether Trump had known about the meeting, which took place in Trump Tower and included his son-in-law Jared Kushner and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort.



The Republican governor also said it was unclear what role Trump played in crafting Trump Jr.'s initial response to news reports about the meeting, which Trump Jr. first said was "primarily" about adoption and its relation to US sanctions on Russia under the Magnitsky Act.
Within days of that first statement, as more details about the meeting became public, Trump Jr. posted emails on Twitter that showed he took the meeting in hopes of gaining damaging information on Hillary Clinton that would be provided as part of the Russian government's support for his father.

Category 5 hurricane: White House under siege by Trump Jr.s Russia revelations

Source: MSN

The White House has been thrust into chaos after days of ever-worsening revelations about a meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a lawyer characterized as representing the Russian government, as the president fumes against his enemies and senior aides circle one another with suspicion, according to top White House officials and outside advisers.

President Trump who has been hidden from public view since returning last weekend from a divisive international summit is enraged that the Russia cloud still hangs over his presidency and is exasperated that his eldest son and namesake has become engulfed by it, said people who have spoken with him this week.
The disclosure that Trump Jr. met with a Russian attorney, believing he would receive incriminating information about Hillary Clinton as part of the Kremlins effort to boost his fathers candidacy, has set back the administrations faltering agenda and rattled the senior leadership team.

Even supporters of Trump Jr. who believe he faces no legal repercussions privately acknowledged Tuesday that the story is a public relations disaster for him as well as for the White House. One outside ally called it a Category 5 hurricane, while an outside adviser said a CNN graphic charting connections between the Trump team and Russians resembled the plot of the fictional Netflix series House of Cards.
Even Vice President Pence sought to distance himself from the controversy, with his spokesman noting that Trump Jr.s meeting occurred before Pence joined the ticket.

Inside a White House in which infighting often seems like a core cultural value, three straight days of revelations in the New York Times about Trump Jr. have inspired a new round of accusations and recriminations, with advisers privately speculating about who inside the Trump orbit may be leaking damaging information about the presidents son

In retrospect, I probably would have done things a little differently': Donald Trump Jr tells Hannity he met Russian lawyer because it was 'opposition research' as he insists his father knew nothing about it
