Chris Christie Claims Trump is Surrounded by “Felons”

Published

on

Apparently under the impression that his opinion actually matters, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is said to have described President Donald Trump’s administration as compromised by “felons” in an upcoming book.

In the somewhat comically titled “Let Me Finish: Trump, the Kushners, Bannon, New Jersey, and the Power of In-Your-Face Politics,” Christie describes Trump’s administration as tainted with a “revolving door of deeply flawed individuals — amateurs, grifters, weaklings, convicted and unconvicted felons.” 

It’s quite possible Christie’s dissatisfaction with the President he endorsed is simply an element of his long-running feud with Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner. As a federal prosecutor in New Jersey, Christie oversaw the conviction of Kushner’s father, Charles, for tax evasion. He goes on to claim that Jared orchestrated a “political hit job” against him within the Trump administration in his book. It doesn’t come as a surprise to see him also point out former White House Strategist Steve Bannon as a supposed problem in the title of his book, either.

Most serious Trump supporters aren’t exactly thrilled by the prospect of either Christie or Kushner influencing the policy agenda of the administration to resemble east coast “moderate Republican” milquetoast ideology, so they aren’t going to lose sleep over Christie’s claims of being boxed out of the White House.

Christie’s been increasingly willing to become a critic of the Trump administration, despite serving as somewhat of a relevant figure within the Trump campaign before the election. He claimed that President Trump resembled an obstinate “72-year old relative” on an ABC segment, suggesting his frustration with an inability to make the President conform to his preferred policy agenda.

I’m sure millions of Trump supporters are sitting on the edge of their seats waiting eagerly for Chris Christie’s recommendations for the administration when his book comes out on January 29th.

Mitch McConnell Preparing Exit Strategies, Potential Successors in Advance of Possible Retirement

Will Mitch retire?

Published

on

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly created a shortlist of potential successors, with the establishment Republican considering a possible retirement before his term ends. McConnell was reelected to another Senate term in 2020, and the Intercept broke the news of his retirement considerations on Thursday.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is reportedly McConnell’s first pick for his successor. Former UN Ambassador Kelly Craft and Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams are also possible replacements. McConnell, 79, has served as a Kentucky Senator since 1985.

Kentucky law currently would allow Governor Andy Beshear- a Democrat- to appoint McConnell’s successor if he retired. However, McConnell is pushing for the Republican state legislature to pass reforms allowing them to select replacements for Senators who have resigned. McConnell’s quiet boosting of legislative reforms to appoint interim Senators led to the reports of his potential retirement, although it’s unclear when he plans to leave the picture.

McConnell largely alienated the Republican Party with a forceful denunciation of former President Donald Trump during the second sham impeachment trial targeting the President, although he declined to vote to convict the President on the basis of legality. A Republican candidate in the mold of McConnell’s 20th century style would have a difficult time winning a Kentucky GOP primary, and McConnell’s appointed pick may start off in such an election with a considerable handicap. In addition, the legacy Senator remains popular in Kentucky, although at least one county party censured him for his betrayal of Trump in January.
