Christie Blasts Trump’s Lies About Security Clearances

Politico reports:

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Monday that the White House’s lack of transparency surrounding security clearances for President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, is indefensible.

Christie, a frequent defender of Trump on cable TV who came close to being his pick for vice president in 2016, said that last week’s reporting by The New York Times that Trump went against legal advice and ordered Kushner be given a security clearance — in contradiction with statements by the president and his daughter — “make it very, very difficult” for Trump’s allies to defend him.
