Report: Christie had to restrain Flynn at Trump intel briefing, told him to ‘shut up’
NBC reports that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn was out of control at the intelligence briefing given to Donald Trump.
…four people with knowledge of the matter told NBC News that one of the advisers Trump brought to the briefing, retired general Mike Flynn, repeatedly interrupted the briefing with pointed questions.
Two sources said Christie, the New Jersey governor and Trump adviser, verbally restrained Flynn — one saying Christie said, “Shut up,” the other reporting he said, “Calm down.” Two other sources said Christie touched Flynn’s arm in an effort get him to calm down and let the officials continue. Requests for comment from Flynn and Christie were not immediately returned.
