Christie says he warned Trump the Russian Federation investigation would not go away

Soon after dropping out of the 2016 Republican primary race, Christie became one of Donald Trump's early backers. Christie also addresses Bob Woodward's "shoddy reporting", saying it was "not the work of America's greatest investigative reporter".

"Never say never", Christie replied, according to KESQ.

Chris Christie said that "one of the most loathsome, disgusting crimes" he prosecuted more than a decade ago when he was a U.S. attorney was committed by the father of President Donald Trump's son-in-law and top adviser Jared Kushner.

Colbert asked what Christie gets out of his 17-year friendship with the infamously transactional Trump. In addition to blaming him for getting him fired from the Trump transition team, he claims Kushner and Ivanka Trump kept him from being Trump's running mate and charged Kushner with being a political lightweight.

While serving in 2005 as a USA attorney, Christie prosecuted Jared's father, Charles Kushner, on multiple counts for illegal campaign contributions, tax evasion and witness tampering. Mr. Kushner pled guilty. As a US attorney, Christie prosecuted Kushner's father, Charles, for tax evasion, witness tampering and illegal campaign contributions, sending the elder Kushner to prison in 2004. 'And so what am I supposed to do as a prosecutor?

Christie said he laughed and insisted the issue was "far from over". That tape was then sent to Schulder's wife, who was Charles' sister Esther.

In a plea deal negotiated by Christie, Kushner pleaded guilty to 16 counts of tax evasion, one count of retaliating against a federal witness - his brother-in-law - and another count of lying to the Federal Election Commission. She promptly turned on Kushner.

Asked if he understands why Jared Kushner takes the situation between Christie and his father personally, Christie answered, "Yes and no". Because sometimes in politics, things don't go the way you expect. Some Christie aides and allies were linked to the closures, seeing it as a way to punish the mayor of Fort Lee for not endorsing Christie's re-election bid that year. He was sentenced to 24 months in prison and served 14.
