WASHINGTON – Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, trusted by President Donald Trump, said Sunday that the president should end his legal battle, challenging the election results, and cede President-elect Joe Biden.
“Listen, I was a supporter of the president, I voted for him twice, but the election has consequences and we can̵
“They allege fraud outside the courtroom, but when they enter the courtroom, they do not plead for fraud and do not argue about fraud,” Christie said, adding, “you have an obligation to present evidence, the evidence is not presented. “
Trump claims that the US presidential election was riddled with “huge irregularities and fraud” and therefore rejects the results. Other senior government officials, such as Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, have publicly insisted that the election is not over. Trump’s campaign continues to call into question the integrity of the election through a series of legal actions on the battlefield.
On Saturday, a federal judge in Pennsylvania rejected a lawsuit from Trump’s campaign aimed at blocking the verification of millions of votes in that country. The judge’s decision is another brick in the crumbling building, which is Trump’s long-standing request to invalidate enough ballots in enough states to reverse Biden’s election victory.
The campaign of Trump and her allies has already lost or withdrawn more than 30 cases that were part of those efforts.
Trump’s campaign lawyer, Sidney Powell, listed numerous allegations of fraud in an interview with Newsmax on Saturday. Powell claims that Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp may have been involved in the denials of government officials, but did not give details.
“Sidney Powell accuses Governor Brian Kemp of a crime on television, but he still does not want to appear on television and defend and present the evidence he thinks he has,” is “scandalous behavior,” Christie said.
The former governor and federal prosecutor has denounced Trump’s legal team as a “national embarrassment.”
