Christie reveals the 'significant' reason he was dumped from Trump transition team

The Commissions report highlighted the July 2017 bipartisan enactment of Governor Christies proposed Lottery Enterprise Contribution Act as a key measure that has reduced the systems liability and increased its funding.

Christie in late May said he told Trump Flynn wasn't someone "who would bring benefit to the president or to the administration".

Chris Christie said Wednesday his opposition to President Donald Trump's hiring of Michael Flynn was one of the reasons he was sacked from the transition team, Politico reported.

Flynn was sacked within a month, ostensibly because he lied to Vice President Mike Pence, who had replaced Christie as transition chairman, about his conversations with the Russian ambassador. Besides the Flynn guilty plea, in which he has agreed to cooperate with Mueller's office, the investigation has yielded two indictments of former campaign officials and another guilty plea, by a former foreign policy adviser.

His refusal to embrace Flynn was "a significant" reason for his "early departure from the transition", Christie said.

Flynn is the most senior US official to be charged in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing probe into possible collusion between Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation.

Christie said he and his team did extensive work on the transition before he was replaced by Mike Pence, then the vice president-elect, but the "four volumes of books" Christie put together were apparently "thrown out the day I was terminated", he added. "The president's campaign was built on being an outsider who was going to come into Washington and change things". I'm OK with that.

On Wednesday, he told reporters a future president "cannot run a transition as an outsider". "You have to be able to understand what needs to be done".
