Former Gov. Chris Christie in his new book unloads on some well known names in the White House, arguing President Trump is being misserved by the “amateurs, grifters, weaklings, convicted and unconvicted felons.”

The former New Jersey governor is settling scores in his book, ‘Let Me Finish,’ which comes out Jan. 29.

He slams White House adviser and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, but he also writes that Trump “trusts people he shouldn’t, including some of the people who are closest to him.”

Christie writes:

I did everything I could to make sure my friend Donald reached the White House fully prepared to serve. But a handful of selfish individuals sidetracked our very best efforts. They set loose toxic forces that have made Trump’s presidency far less effective than it would otherwise have been. If this tragedy is ever going to be reversed, it is vital that everyone know exactly how it occurred.   Once Steve Bannon started unburdening himself … in his Trump Tower office, he couldn’t seem to stop. “The kid’s been taking an ax to your head with the boss ever since I got here,” he blurted out. “It’s been constant. He never stops. Ancient bitterness, I guess.”   In Bannon-speak, the KID is only one person. Not Donald Jr. Not younger son Eric. Not Ivanka or Tiffany. The kid is Jared Kushner, the husband of Ivanka Trump and the son of the real estate developer Charles Kushner, a man I once sent to prison.

Christie claims the president is surrounded by a ‘revolving door of deeply flawed individuals — amateurs, grifters, weaklings, convicted and unconvicted felons — who were hustled into jobs they were never suited for, sometimes seemingly without so much as a background check via Google or Wikipedia.’

Christie asserts that Trump has a “revolving door of deeply flawed individuals — amateurs, grifters, weaklings, convicted and unconvicted felons — who were hustled into jobs they were never suited for, sometimes seemingly without so much as a background check via Google or Wikipedia.”

Christie claimed Jared Kushner executed a political ‘hit job’ against him to get him fired as the head of Trump’s transition team and for keeping him out of the administration.

He contends the president’s son-in-law was acting out of revenge for Christie’s prosecution of Jared Kushner’s father, Charles Kushner, in 2004 when he was U.S. attorney for New Jersey.

Christie’s prosecution of billionaire real estate developer Charles Kushner helped put him on the map.

The elder Kushner pleaded guilty to 16 counts of tax evasion, one count of retaliating against a federal witness, and another count of lying to the Federal Election Commission.

An anonymous ‘high-ranking Trump staffer,’ Christie recounts, called him to warn that “the family is very upset that he says it will be you.”
