On an appearance MSNBC’s Morning Joe, former New Jersey governor and Donald Trump’s old friend, Chris Christie, disclosed that despite Trump’s public display of confidence, he is secretly apprehensive about the possibility of going to jail.
During the interview, Christie defended prosecutors’ decision to indict Trump on charges related to hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels and mishandling classified documents.
Christie said: “He generally has really crappy lawyers, so let me give him advice. When they get a court order from a United States District Court judge, it’s not a violation of your Fourth Amendment rights. In fact, if you had done the simple thing that I think almost any other American would have done, which would have been to give the documents back, he wouldn’t be prosecuted. He is in big trouble there.”
Christie went on to express his belief that if Trump proceeds to trial and is convicted based on the indictment’s evidence, he will face jail time. He noted that historically, when individuals are offered a plea deal by the Justice Department and choose to go to trial instead, they often receive jail sentences upon conviction.
“I think that’s what he goes to bed every night thinking. Every night,” Christie revealed about Trump’s fears. “All this bravado and everything else, I’ve known him for 22 years, when I was doing these cases in New Jersey, and I’d put political figures in jail, he’d say to me, ‘I could never do that. I could never go to jail.’ And I’m telling you, no matter what he says, no matter how he’s bragging and going on and on about him not being afraid, he goes to bed every time thinking about the sound of the jail cell door closing behind him.”
The interview took place shortly after Trump mocked Christie on his social media platform, Truth Social, by posting a photo of him sleeping on an airplane with the caption, “Resting after a good 25 minutes of work!”
