Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has remained one of President Trump’s staunchest defenders throughout his tenure as commander-in-chief. We couldn’t find one instance of him rebuking the president’s strategy in public until now.

Christie’s criticism follows another media appearance by former Trump campaign attorney Sidney Powell. On Saturday, Powell said — without any evidence — that conservative Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) received a bribe to certify his state’s election results.

Christie called the president’s legal team “a national embarrassment” in response on national TV.

The Daily Caller’s Scott Morefield reports:

The former governor called the insinuation “outrageous conduct by any lawyer.”

“They won’t do it inside the courtroom,” Christie said, referring to some aspects of the Trump campaign’s election fraud contentions. “They allege fraud outside the courtroom, but when they go inside the courtroom, they don’t plead fraud and they don’t argue fraud.”

“The president has had an opportunity to access the courts,” Christie said. “If you have got the evidence of fraud, present it. And what happened here is quite frankly, the legal team has been a national embarrassment.”

WATCH:

Christie went on to say that while he has been a Trump supporter and voted for him twice, “elections have consequences, and we cannot continue to act as if something happened here that didn’t happen.”

A feud between Powell and Fox News’ Tucker Carlson emerged last week after the host challenged her to provide evidence to reinforce her as yet unsubstantiated claims that election software companies stole millions of votes from Trump.

Several prominent attorneys have come out to say that President Trump still has multiple legal pathways to victory, though all present challenges.

In the meantime, President Trump’s legal team distanced itself from Powell after she appeared alongside Trump campaign legal advisers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis both in press conferences and court.

Trump tweeted on November 14 that Powell was a member of his legal team.

I guess Christie thinks he could do better and wasn’t asked to help. He just a wimpy rino it appears. Turncoat. I guess Trump will see who is really behind him on this and who is his real friends.
