Chris Christie says he won’t rule out running against Trump in 2024

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is considering another run for president in 2024, despite rumors that President Donald Trump will also run in 2024.

In an interview on Monday with talk show host Hugh Hewitt, Christie said, “I would not rule it out,” when asked if he would run for president – even against Trump.

Christie ran for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination before suspending his campaign and endorsing Trump.

Christie has since become an ally to President Trump, serving as the head of the president’s 2016 transition planning team. He also was involved in Trump’s debate Trump against President-elect Joe Biden.

In Monday’s interview, the former New Jersey governor said he does not agree with how Trump is handling his loss to President-elect Joe Biden.

“The president is very, very focused now just on his continued concerns about how the election went, those are things that he and I do not agree on. I try not to agitate him too much. I’ve been his friend for 20 years, I’ll continue to be his friend but on this one, we have a fundamental disagreement,” Christie said.

Christie told Hewitt that he was doubtful Trump would attend Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20.

“I think he should. I think these type of rituals and traditions and norms are important in our democracy, but I’m doubtful that he will,” Christie said. “But he’s Donald Trump, which makes him very unpredictable so you never quite know.”

Christie noted that he was upset by President Trump’s loss to Biden.

“I was very disappointed that he lost,” Christie said. “Losing in politics hurts much more than winning feels good.”

When asked by Hewitt if Christie had a Christie 2024 URL reserved, he replied, “ChrisChristie.com is [reserved], so we’re going to keep that one, and we’ll see where we go from here.”

BREAKING: Clinton herself ‘agreed’ to leak Trump-Russia allegations to press

Remember this 2016 post from Hillary herself just days away from the election? During Friday’s trial of her former attorney Michael Sussmann, some juicy details behind this vey post have emerged.

“Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager, said that Clinton ‘agreed’ to leak allegations that the Trump Organization had a secret communications channel with Russia’s Alfa Bank to the media during his Friday testimony” reports National Review.

The media “report” Hillary tweeted about above, was spoon-fed to them with her blessing. Mook also revealed the “purpose” for the campaign to leak it to the press was to have a reporter “run it down” further and “vet it out.”

As for Mrs. Clinton’s involvement, Mook added that he “discussed it with Hillary as well” after which, “she agreed to” their decision to turn the loose gossip over to the press.

She was then able to use Slate’s “reporting” to discuss the fake collusion publicly. Clinton then tweeted the campaign’s press release on the “statement from Jake Sullivan on New Report Exposing Trump’s Secret Line of Communication to Russia.”

FBI agent James Baker, the then-agent who Sussmann took the Alfa Bank information to, testified in the trial Wednesday. He said he was “100 percent confident” that Sussmann said he wasn’t representing a client when they met.

A text message from Sussmann to Baker from the day prior reads: “Jim — it’s Michael Sussmann. I have something time-sensitive (and sensitive) I need to discuss. Do you have availability for a short meeting tomorrow? I’m coming on my own — not on behalf of a client or company — want to help the Bureau. Thanks.”

National Review reports of the case:

The former FBI general counsel said that he would have treated the meeting and subsequent investigation differently had he known Sussmann was coming forward on behalf of the Clinton campaign.

 The evidence that Sussmann delivered to Baker came in the form of Domain Name System (DNS) data that allegedly showed frequent communications between servers associated with the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank. The data was provided to Sussmann by Joffe, an executive at the cybersecurity firm Neustar, which was also being represented by Sussmann as part of his role as a partner at the Perkins Coie law firm.

FBI agent Scott Hellman testified Tuesday that he was immediately skeptical of the data and accompanying analysis that suggested illicit communications between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank. In fact, the quality of the analysis was so poor, that Hellman questioned whether its source had a “mental disability” in a private chat with FBI colleagues, obtained by prosecutors.

Opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which Perkins Coie hired to work on behalf of the Clinton campaign, translated the DNS data into laymen’s terms and pitched it to various reporters, including Franklin Foer, a writer for Slate.

 “We certainly hoped that he would publish an article,” former Fusion GPS employee Lauren Seago testified.

Foer obliged them, touting the claims in an article published on October 31, 2016, a little over a week before Election Day.
