On Sunday, Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie continued his attack on President Trump.
This time, he said Trump’s Jan. 6 federal case is more difficult now that his former chief of staff Mark Meadows has accepted an immunity deal.
“You do not give immunity, complete immunity, to the former White House chief of staff unless he’s got information that is devastating and that you couldn’t get any other way. Donald Trump is in huge trouble.”

From The Hill:
“Donald Trump is not going to be able to beat [President Biden] from a courtroom in Washington, D.C., while he’s fighting his indictment on the January 6 case,” Christie said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“And let me tell you, that indictment got much tougher for him to beat when his own chief of staff has now accepted immunity and will testify against him about the lies he told in the aftermath of January 6, and what he was told by his own people about the fact that he had lost the election,” he continued.
Meadows secured an immunity deal with special counsel Jack Smith in order to testify before a grand jury in the election interference case, ABC News first reported last week.
The outlet said Meadows testified before a grand jury empaneled to hear evidence in the case on at least three separate occasions.
The former New Jersey Governor also took aim at Trump on Sunday for not finishing “what he started” in his first term.
.@realDonaldTrump couldn’t finish anything during his first term. Imagine what he would get done in a second term with the clowns and rogues gallery around him.

“And so, look, if he couldn’t do it in the first term with good people around him, imagine what he would do in a second term with the clowns and rogues’ gallery he would have around him in a second Trump term, because that’s the only people that would actually work for him,” he said.
Christie also accused President Trump of siding with Russian President Vladimir Putin because he wanted to separate the aid the United States is sending to Ukraine from the aid sent to Israel.

For his part, President Trump couldn’t resist having a little fun at his opponent’s expense.
