Former Governor Chris Christie, a potential candidate for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, shared his thoughts on former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows’ potential cooperation with the Department of Justice. Christie, during an interview on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” suggested that Meadows’ testimony could have a detrimental effect on former President Donald Trump’s case.
Christie based his speculation on Meadows’ behavior of evading the press and making appearances as a witness in coffee shops. Additionally, he noted that Meadows’ name was absent from the list of unindicted co-conspirators and the indictment, both of which could potentially indicate cooperation.
Acknowledging Meadows’ significant involvement in various matters during his tenure, including attending meetings and being part of conversations, Christie emphasized the potential damage Meadows’ testimony could inflict on Trump. He also mentioned that Meadows had turned over hundreds of text messages to the special counsel during the investigation.
Christie’s assessment contributes to the ongoing scrutiny surrounding investigations involving the former president.
