Chris Christie is in the news again, Team Trump is considering Chris Christie to replace fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions — and the former New Jersey governor was at the White House on Thursday morning, according to multiple reports.
President Trump canned Sessions on Wednesday after spending months pillorying him for recusing himself from the Justice Department’s probe of Russian election meddling and possible collusion with the president’s campaign.
Christie was axed as the head of Trump’s transition team, reportedly at the behest of Jared Kushner,whose father, Charles, spent time in a federal pen after he was prosecuted on tax evasion and other charges by Christie when he was a federal prosecutor.
