PERINO And joining us ░░░░░░░░ is Republican presidential candidate ░░░░░░░░ former New Jersey governor ░░░░░░░░ Christie All right so ░░░░░░░░ re a former prosecutor ░░░░░░░░ you look at this ░░░░░░░░ I also want to ░░░░░░░░ you that same question ░░░░░░░░ have the federal case ░░░░░░░░ you re very familiar ░░░░░░░░ and you have a ░░░░░░░░ case Usually the federal ░░░░░░░░ will supersede the state ░░░░░░░░ but not in this ░░░░░░░░ CHRISTIE Well this is ░░░░░░░░ I m uncomfortable with ░░░░░░░░ I read last night ░░░░░░░░ think that this conduct ░░░░░░░░ essentially covered by the ░░░░░░░░ indictment not with the ░░░░░░░░ of detail that they ░░░░░░░░ it in this but ░░░░░░░░ s just a stylistic ░░░░░░░░ Election interference is election ░░░░░░░░ it has been charged ░░░░░░░░ Jack Smith and most ░░░░░░░░ the time what you ░░░░░░░░ see here would be ░░░░░░░░ state court deferring to ░░░░░░░░ federal prosecution especially if ░░░░░░░░ federal indictment had already ░░░░░░░░ issued So I think ░░░░░░░░ was unnecessary as to ░░░░░░░░ Trump Now remember as ░░░░░░░░ the other defendants Jack ░░░░░░░░ chose not to charge ░░░░░░░░ so I would have ░░░░░░░░ of a problem with ░░░░░░░░ if she decided Okay ░░░░░░░░ won t charge Donald ░░░░░░░░ here because he has ░░░░░░░░ charged for essentially this ░░░░░░░░ by Jack Smith But ░░░░░░░░ and Meadows and others ░░░░░░░░ not been charged at ░░░░░░░░ federal level That would ░░░░░░░░ a more defensible indictment ░░░░░░░░ think HEMMER So let ░░░░░░░░ ask you so you ░░░░░░░░ with what Turley just ░░░░░░░░ then He called it ░░░░░░░░ CHRISTIE Yeah I think ░░░░░░░░ was unnecessary yeah HEMMER ░░░░░░░░ then would you as ░░░░░░░░ Democratic D A pursue ░░░░░░░░ charges if you think ░░░░░░░░ law they are already ░░░░░░░░ in these other cases ░░░░░░░░ See people view this ░░░░░░░░ your question views it ░░░░░░░░ a partisan decision Don ░░░░░░░░ forget that these prosecutors ░░░░░░░░ have egos And she ░░░░░░░░ been investigating this thing ░░░░░░░░ 2 2 1 2 ░░░░░░░░ Jack Smith comes in ░░░░░░░░ the last year and ░░░░░░░░ in he charges quickly ░░░░░░░░ she says Whoa wait ░░░░░░░░ second I ve been ░░░░░░░░ at this I m ░░░░░░░░ this indicates there is ░░░░░░░░ cooperation between her office ░░░░░░░░ the special counsel s ░░░░░░░░ I m sure he ░░░░░░░░ her to defer She ░░░░░░░░ not to So what ░░░░░░░░ would say to the ░░░░░░░░ Bill is don t ░░░░░░░░ look at this as ░░░░░░░░ partisan decision This is ░░░░░░░░ an ego decision where ░░░░░░░░ said Well hell I ░░░░░░░░ all this time and ░░░░░░░░ into this investigation and ░░░░░░░░ want something out of ░░░░░░░░ HEMMER They were saying ░░░░░░░░ same thing about Alvin ░░░░░░░░ here in New York ░░░░░░░░ That’s right.”
