Chris Christie accuses Jared Kushner of political 'hit job' in explosive new book - 2019-01-15
Chris Christie, who was ousted as chairman of Donald Trump's White House transition team in 2016, has written a blistering attack on Jared Kushner, whom he accuses of having carried out a political "hit job" on him as an act of revenge for prosecuting his father, Charles Kushner, a decade ago.
In his soon to be published book, Let Me Finish, Christie unleashes both barrels on Trump's son-in-law, who remains a senior White House adviser with responsibilities for Middle Eastern peace, sentencing reform and "American innovation".
Christie blames this key player in the president's inner circle for his ignominious dismissal shortly after Trump's election victory in November 2016. Christie, the former governor of New Jersey, writes that Kushner's role in his sacking was confirmed to him by Steve Bannon, Trump's campaign chief, in real time.
