After reading the latest partially redacted sentencing memos to stem out of Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation.
Ex-New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who also served as a federal prosecutor, said he was especially interested in “the language” of the documents made public last week.
Calling it “different from what we’ve heard before,” the Republican said that he wording should concern President Donald Trump and his legal team.
“The language sounds very definite,” he said. “And what I’d be concerned about is what corroboration do they have.”
He noted that Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, is not a reliable witness on his own and that, in his experience, when prosecutors sound “that definitive, they’ve got more, usually, than just one witness.”
Christie also noted that he wants to see the probe play out before speculating further, pointing out that the “flip-side for prosecutors is, they’d better have more than one witness” and would have “a problem” making a case based solely on Cohen’s testimony.”
Former Gov. Chris Christie says "the Michael Cohen situation is much more perilous for the White House than Bob Mueller."
