ABC News reports:
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) says in a new interview that President Trump may target Republican senators who buck party leadership and vote for additional witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial for primary challenges.
In an interview with ABC News, Christie said he could “definitely” see the president at least encouraging primary challengers if not seeking them out himself.
“You could very well see the president encouraging or creating primaries against senators that are up this year if they went and voted the other way,” Christie said Thursday. “I could definitely see him at least attempting to do that,” he continued.
