Christie calls Trump’s legal efforts a ‘national embarrassment’ as more Republicans speak

Former New Jersey government Chris Christie, a longtime ally of President Donald Trump, said on Sunday that the president’s legal battle over the election results had reached a point of “national embarrassment” and that the time had come for the president to move forward.

“Clearly, the conduct of the president’s legal team has been a national embarrassment,” Christie said during an interview on ABC’s “This Week”. He pointed to Trump’s attorney Sidney Powell’s various claims about voter fraud, for which he is “unwilling to go on TV and defend and seek out the evidence that he has.”

“You have an obligation to present evidence,” he said. “The evidence has not been presented. And you should conclude – as [Fox News host] Tucker Carlson also concluded the second night – if you are not ready to come forward and present the evidence, it must mean that the evidence exists. “
