ABC News anchor David Muir pushed back on Tuesday when one-time Trump ally Chris Christie attempted to equate the battle over the 2000 presidential election results with Donald Trump’s effort to overturn President Joe Biden’s electoral victory.
During a break in Tuesday afternoon’s Jan. 6 committee hearing, which featured emotional testimony from state election officials and workers detailing how Trump ruined their lives, Muir turned to Christie for reaction and analysis.
Christie, now an ABC News contributor who has repeatedly denounced Trump’s “rigged” election lies, began by reiterating his belief that Trump’s legal team was a “national embarrassment,” adding that Tuesday’s testimony showed he was “exactly right” in that assessment.
