Christie: No Need for Special Prosecutor on Trump-Russia Contacts

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” while discussing disputed contacts between Trump’s presidential campaign and the Russian government, Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) said there was no need for an investigation by a special prosecutor.

Christie said “No. No, I don’t. The Justice Department over the course of time has shown itself with the professionals that are there to have the ability to investigate these type of things. I just think Jake, and this is whether you’re a Republican or a Democrat, we’ve seen it happen on both sides when a special prosecutor gets involved, the thing gets completely out of control. And I think that doesn’t serve anybody’s purposes. We have a lot of important problems to deal with in this country. I’m not saying that’s not one of them, but I believe the Justice Department can handle it.”
