Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Sunday called President Donald Trump's legal team "a national embarrassment" for making claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election without providing clear and convincing evidence in court.
On ABC's "This Week," Christie, a Republican, lit into the president's defense attorneys, saying that they've had multiple chances to present solid evidence of any voting irregularities."The president has had an opportunity to access the courts," he said. "I said…if you've got the evidence of fraud, present it. What's happened here is quite frankly, the conduct of the president's legal team has been a national embarrassment."
"Sidney Powell accusing [Republican] Gov. Brian Kemp of a crime on television, yet being unwilling to go on TV and defend and lay out the evidence that she supposedly has," Christie said. "This is outrageous conduct by any lawyer and notice that they won't do it inside the courtroom."He added: "They allege fraud outside the courtroom, but inside the courtroom they don't plead fraud and they don't argue fraud."
Christie, who ran against Trump in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries, has become an ally of the Trump White House, even helping him prepare for debates against then-Democratic nominee
