Chris Christie: Donald Trump Will ‘Face Real Jail Time’

Former Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), a candidate for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, said Tuesday on CNN’s “The Situation Room” that he believed former President Donald Trump will “face real jail time.”

Anchor Wolf Blitzer said, “The former Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows reportedly testifying with immunity in the federal investigation of Donald Trump and the 2020 election subversion.”

He asked, “How worried should Trump be right now about Mark Meadows being granted immunity?”

Christie said, “Desperately worried.”

He continued, “Reportedly what Mark Meadows is testifying, that you knew all along that what you were saying was not backed up by the facts. Donald Trump is in very, very big trouble. He is going to face real jail time for doing this if that’s what’s proven in court.”

Blitzer asked, “Right now Trump is still the dominant front-runner for the 2024 presidential nomination. Will this latest development with Mark Meadows actually impact how Republican voters feel about the former president?”

Christie said, “Wolf, the walls are closing in on Donald Trump. Jenna Ellis pled guilty today. She’s agreed to testify against the former president. Sidney Powell’s agreed to testify against the former president. Ken Chesebro has agreed to testify against the former president. Not only in Atlanta, but also in the federal January 6th trial for Jack Smith. And now Mark Meadows.”
