Christie: Trump surrounded by amateurs, grifters, weaklings, convicted and non-convicted felons & # 39;
Chris Christie accuses President Donald Trump is misserved by the amateurs, grifters, weaklings, convicted and non-convicted thugs & # 39; around him who have not even been googled in his upcoming memoirs.
The former governor from New Jersey records scores in his book Let Me Finish & # 39 ;, which is released on January 29th.
He throws the adviser to the White House and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner in the book, but he also writes that the president "trusts in people he should not be, including some of the people who are closest to him & # 39 ;, according to Axios, which is a copy of the memoirs.
Christie claims that the president is surrounded by a revolving door of severely flawed persons – amateurs, grifters, weaklings, convicted and non-convicted criminals – who ended up in jobs they were never fit for, sometimes seemingly without a background check via Google or Wikipedia. & # 39;
Forner New Jersey Government Chris Christie is fierce Donald Trump and his inner circle in a new book
Christie, who rejected Trump in his search for a current partner, now claims that poseurs and charlatans have infiltrated the inner circle of the president without any control
No names were given in the snippet published on the news website.
But previous extracts showed Christie grinding an ax with Kushner, whom he blamed for keeping him out of administration.
Axios published an excerpt from the book in which Christie tells how former Trump campaign advisor and Steve Bannon, adviser to the White House, lost themselves to the former governor, particularly on how Kushner launched a political success story on Christie.
& # 39; The child has been holding an ax with my boss since I am here, "says Christie about Bannon. & # 39; It has been constant. He never stops. Old bitterness, I think. & # 39;
Christie writes: & # 39; In the Bannon language the KID is only one person. Not Donald Jr. Not younger son Eric. Not Ivanka or Tiffany. The child is Jared Kushner, the husband of Ivanka Trump and the son of the real estate developer Charles Kushner, a man I once sent to prison. & # 39;
Christie has knives for Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of the president (right), whose father Charles (left) put him in jail when he was a federal prosecutor
Christie has no regrets about prosecuting Charles Kushner and was happy with his final guilty pleas to lie about political donations to the then Gov. Jim McGreevey, cheating his taxes and filming a government witness who has sex with a call girl
Christie, in an excerpt from his book, obtained by the Guardian, claimed that Jared Kushner had a political & # 39; against him to dismiss him as head of Trump's transition team and to keep him out of the administration.
Christie's book is entitled 'Let Me Finish & # 39;
He argues that the president's son-in-law acted out of revenge for Christie's persecution of Jared Kushner's father, Charles Kushner, in 2004 when he was an American lawyer for New Jersey.
Christie's persecution of billionaire real estate developer Charles Kushner helped put him on the map.
The older Kushner pleaded guilty to 16 counts of tax evasion, a count of retaliation against a federal witness and another count of lying against the federal electoral commission.
An anonymous "tall Trump executive", Christie tells, urged him to warn that the family is very upset that he says that it is you & # 39 ;.
But Christie offers Jared Kushner a certain defense – about Kushner's presence at the now-infamous Trump Tower meeting in June 2016 when Kushner, Donald Trump Jr. and then campaign leader Paul Manafort met a Russian lawyer with ties to the Kremlin who claimed to have dirt on Hillary Clinton.
Christie wrote that attending the meeting is only & # 39; silly & # 39; was, or, in the case of Kushner and Trump Jr., a "sign of deep inexperience".
But he claims that Kushner misjudged two Russian-related layoffs: National Security Adviser Michael Flynn in February 2017 and that of FBI director James Comey in May 2017.
Christie writes that Kushner thinks that Flynn would stop talking about the ties between the Trump campaign and Russia – that did not happen – and that the fire from Comey & # 39; a huge shit-storm & # 39; in Washington would not provoke. It really did it.
"The president was ill-served by bad advice," Christie writes.
When Christie dropped out of the 2016 Republican primary, he approved Trump and was one of his early and strongest supporters. It was said that he was on Trump's short list for his current friend.
