GOP Governor Attacks Melania Trump After Scandal

At a SiriusXM Town Hall event hosted at New England College in New Hampshire, Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie fielded a direct question regarding his views on the Trump family’s alleged corruption. The query arose amidst House Republicans’ official commencement of an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden on the same day.

Christie expressed his belief that, currently, there isn’t sufficient evidence to warrant the impeachment of President Biden. However, he underscored the importance of the House’s responsibility to employ its oversight function to investigate potential corruption cases.

The former governor of New Jersey specifically mentioned concerns surrounding Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, who were purportedly earning over $40 million annually while serving in the White House.

When directly asked whether he considered the Trump family to be corrupt, Christie replied affirmatively, stating, “Yes. Sure. I mean, it’s just readily apparent.”

He cited several instances, including payments made from campaign funds to Kimberly Guilfoyle for a brief speech and substantial expenses related to Melania Trump’s stylist, which he found questionable in terms of campaign donation use.

Christie also highlighted that Jared Kushner received significant investments from foreign entities like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the UAE shortly after leaving the White House, without deploying any of those funds for an extended period while still collecting management fees.

The moderator Steve Scully followed up and asked, “So are you saying that the Trump family is corrupt?”

“Yes. Sure. I mean, it’s just I mean, it’s it’s readily apparent,” Christie shot back, adding:

I MEAN, WHEN YOU PAY YOUR YOUR SON’S GIRLFRIEND 60 GRAND OUT OF CAMPAIGN MONEY TO GIVE A THREE-MINUTE SPEECH, YOU’RE USING MONEY THAT PEOPLE DONATED TO YOU. AND BY THE WAY, THAT MONEY WAS DONATED BY PEOPLE WHO WANTED TO FUND HIM TO FIGHT THE STOLEN ELECTION, WHEN THEY DONATED THAT MONEY, THEY DIDN’T THINK 60 GRAND WAS GOING TO KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE TO GIVE A THREE-MINUTE SPEECH.

THEY DIDN’T THINK $280,000 WAS GOING TO MELANIA’S STYLIST. RIGHT. SO I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU WOULD CALL THAT OTHER THAN CORRUPT. AND TO SEND JARED KUSHNER TO THE MIDDLE EAST AND THEN HAVING HIM WITHIN SIX MONTHS, AND BY THE WAY, THE 2 BILLION HE GOT FROM THE SAUDIS UP UNTIL FIVE DAYS AGO, HE DIDN’T INVEST IN ANY OF THAT MONEY. HE GOT AT SIX MONTHS AFTER THEY LEFT OFFICE IN THE MIDDLE OF 2021. WE’RE DOWN TO THE THIRD QUARTER OF 2023. THAT’S TWO YEARS HE HADN’T INVESTED A NICKLE OF THE MONEY, BUT PAID HIMSELF HIS MANAGEMENT FEE OUT OF THAT MONEY AS A PERCENTAGE OF THE 2 BILLION, EVERY QUARTER, FOR WHAT? WHAT WAS HE MANAGING? TO MAKE SURE, PICK UP THE PHONE AND MAKE SURE THE 2 BILLION WAS STILL THERE. OKAY, GREAT.

“SO YEAH, THAT LOOKS LIKE CORRUPTION TO ME.”
