Christie Fine With Garner Grand Jury: ‘I Won’t Second Guess [Them]’
[su_right_ad]The New Jersey governor doesn’t want to alienate a base he might need if he runs for president.
This case is so outrageous to a lot of people that it’s even managed to bring Rand Paul and Hillary Clinton together. But unlike their more candid reactions about issues with the police and race, Chris Christie today said he doesn’t want to “second-guess” that work by the grand jury.
In comments reported by the Wall Street Journal, Christie said, “As someone who ran a prosecuting office for seven years before I became governor, one of the things I learned is that you never know all the things that a grand jury knows, unless you’re in that grand jury and working with them.”
Christie has kept mostly silent on these issues, recently declining to discuss issues raised by Ferguson.[su_csky_ad]
