Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House,” Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) said White House senior advisor Jared Kushner “deserves” scrutiny from special counsel Robert Mueller, who headed the probe into Russia involvement in the 2016 presidential election.
Christie said, “I’m telling you that he deserves the scrutiny. You know why? Because he was involved in the transition and involved in meetings that call into question his role. OK, well, then if he’s innocent of that, then that will come out as Mueller examines all the facts, and if he’s not, that will come out too.”
He continued, “Deserve, everybody by the way, who was involved in that transition, post the election, is involved, from, you know, everybody, all the leadership is going to be questioned, and I think has been questioned.”
