Chris Christie Explains How Trump ‘Blew It’ With Government Shutdown

Christie prosecuted Kushner's father, Charles Kushner, in 2004 when he was US attorney for New Jersey and claims that was the reason the younger Kushner got him fired from heading Donald Trump's transition team after the 2016 election. Christie said he warned Trump beforehand that "if you're going to do this, you'd better have an exit plan".

The View's Sunny Hostin put former New Jersey governor and author of Let Me Finish: Trump, the Kushners, Bannon, New Jersey, and the Power of In-Your-Face Politics Chris Christie on the spot Tuesday, forcing the ex-governor to explain his support for then-candidate Donald Trump after the campaign went after him for his role in shutting down the George Washington Bridge in 2013, the scandal known as Bridgegate.

He added, "It's one of the most loathsome, disgusting crimes that I prosecuted when I was US attorney", Christie said during a segment with PBS's "Firing Line With Margaret Hoover".

"I've always said I never wanted any members of my family working for me because if I had to fire them, I'd have to also sit with them at Thanksgiving and that's a really uncomfortable thing".

The pair continued the conversation about who Christie's current constituency.

Trump allegedly argued, saying that Christie was doing his job: "He was doing what he was supposed to be doing, your father pled guilty".

In a plea deal negotiated by Christie, Kushner pleaded guilty to 16 counts of tax evasion, one count of retaliating against a federal witness - his brother-in-law - and another count of lying to the Federal Election Commission.

Colbert asked, to which Christie replied, "Listen, before we get to that, are we drinking tonight or not?" If you're convicting murderers, it's one thing. "You call me a criminal, I'm not stumping".

The former governor claims Kushner told Trump that it wasn't fair his father spent so long in prison - the elder Kushner served 14 months behind bars and the rest of his two year sentence in a halfway house.
