Sunday Talks: Chris Christie -vs- Jake Tapper and George Stephanopoulos…

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie discusses reports from CNN that charges have been filed within special counsel’s Robert Mueller’s investigation with Jake Tapper.

.

Governor Christie also appeared on This Week with George Stephanopoulos and fielded many of the same questions (below).  However, in the ABC interview Governor Christie discusses the aspects of the grand jury story from his own experience as a federal prosecutor. Stephanopoulos always backs down from his talking points when he recognizes he’s over his head with a SME (subject matter expert):

          was wondering the same thing. he’s tenacious for sure, might make him a candidate for special prosecutor – uranium one. i keep remembering what he did to little marco, and it might be cathartic to watch him take on the obama administration. one thing’s for sure, it’s going to take a junk yard dog to go up against those criminals and win.

      I wish you were right, Jimmy. I so much want to have an aggresive AG. Christie would do it. Sessions doesnt have what it takes , according to the times we are living in. I can understand why Trump gave Sessions the position: out of a sense of loyalty but what I dont understand is why Sessions took it, he would be so much better as a Senator for his own good.

        Sessions would have been better as Homeland Security Chief and would have been happier to boot. Kelly should have been COS from the get go, but Trump felt he had to throw Priebus a bone. Christie and Giuliani would have been better AGs, but both had issues and not sure they could have made it through confirmation. Rudy also stated he did not want the position. Too bad! I too want a hard charging AG!

        Yeah, Sessions taking that position is a tad galling to me, since he’s recused himself to the nth degree and almost all of this stuff coming up in the recent scandals has to do with HRC and Russian, Obama and Russia (the Federalist link on the other thread noted that Obama donated to FUSION out of his campaign funds, too!), FUSION and Russia, DNC and Russia, and it seems everybody and his brother on the left…Russia!

        I keep praying for Justice to be done! And if that means removing Sessions from office, I have no problem with that. I wrote him and told him that if he can’t do the job required that maybe he needs to resign. ANYbody can prosecute gangs, cartels, drug dealers, et al.

        I saw it over and over in my working career. People would nearly always take that next step up the ladder even when it wasn’t a good fit for their talents or personality.
        And then, they would be visibly unhappy, but never go down the ladder a rung to where they were happy.

        I always valued quality of life more. When the next rung up was an obvious reduction in job enjoyment, I refused it. I’ve never regretted those decisions either.

          Yes, I agree with you. Sessions is a grown up man, he should’ve known better besides, he should’ve known that Trump gave it to him for his good behavior during the campaign, not his qualities as AG of this big and complicated nation . One thing is a state AG and another AG of the US. I cant believe that he was such a small man to take this position as revenge for being denied of the AG of Alabama position.

He wanted to hide behind any dune. The day I saw him really happy was during the debate when he utterly crushed little Marco. He was high fiving Trump, couldnt hide his happiness.he did it for his friend Donald, it was so obvious. I think that picture is more important for looking into his soul than the one of him and traitor.

But more importantly, could he be confirmed? He doesn’t suffer fools, and I could see him blasting away at a stupid confirmation question. In any case, I believe he would have been infinitely more diligent than Sessions in housecleaning and re-professionalizing Justice, and fearlessly prosecuting anyone who has committed a crime, from Hillary on down. Just my 2 cents.

    He handled himself well on these interviews. No reason to expect he’d do worse as SC.

    A federal judge is declining to dismiss cases for more than 200 people charged with rioting on President Trump’s Inauguration Day.

    In a decision issued Thursday, Judge Lynn Leibovitz of the District of Columbia Superior Court denied all motions to dismiss the criminal cases filed by defense attorneys who claimed clients could not be tied to specific instances of rioting on Jan. 20.

          “In October 2017, ( ACLU ) filed an amicus brief in support of several motions filed by the first J20 Defendants on trial. Our motion described the important First Amendment implications of this prosecution, and described the history and application of a doctrine called strictissimi juris, which applies in cases where the government is prosecuting individuals based on their presence or membership in a larger group engaged in both protected First Amendment activity as well as unlawful conduct. In essence, this doctrine requires courts to apply their existing evidentiary and procedural rules in the strictest manner, in order to ensure that individuals who only intended to lawfully exercise their First Amendment rights are not wrongfully convicted based on guilt by association. Doing so ensures that the line between unlawful conduct and protected First Amendment expression and association is upheld, and that individuals are not chilled from exercising their rights for fear of criminal prosecution based on the actions of a few.”

          The motion was denied two days later.

    However, he would make an excellent Drug Czar. Hand selecting a DOJ team to do special prosecutions and investigations. He would shine. Most importantly, Mr. Christie would be effective.

    There is a political reason why drugs, human smuggling, sex slaves and prostitution have proliferated and prospered in the USA. Don’t be surprised if the Senate and Congress is being paid off (sarc). The Cartels pay well, and they probably also have bureaucrats in their back pockets. State and local American politicians have been bought off too, it’s not just in Washington DC.

    From the New York Times interview of Trump atty Ty Cobb –
    2:30 to 3:16 – Cobb describes how they are in full cooperation mode with the Special Counsel and what that means, and that this is demanded of all from the President

    18:25 to 18:39 – Cobb strategy is to cooperate. show we have nothing to hide

    19:39 to 20:00 – Cobb’s posture is cooperation, nothing to hide, showing the public that they have nothing to hide
