New Jersey's former governor, Chris Christie, is in consideration to replace the newly resigned Jeff Sessions as the attorney general, as per a report by CBS News.
Jeff Sessions just resigned, as per the request from President Trump, and now Chris Christie is being reported as one of the people who will be considered as Sessions' replacement. Trump wanted Sessions out a long time ago and finally got his wish, but now he's tasked with finding a suitable replacement.
CBS News stated that "no decisions are expected soon, and the list of those being considered — which also includes Rudy Giuliani, outgoing Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, and former Attorney General William Barr, who served under President George H. W. Bush — is likely to grow in the coming days, CBS News chief White House correspondent Major Garrett reports."
Christie is reportedly a friend of President Trump, but it seems very odd that he's the one friend who doesn't have a White House job after two years.
Christie also ran for president in 2016, but dropped out. When Trump won, Christie was tasked with running the transition process before Trump took over in the White House. It was "a task that was marginalized by other Trump aides and that ultimately bore only marginal influence on personnel and policy in the new administration. Since then, though, he has begun to rebuild his relationship with Mr. Trump and senior White House officials."
Chris Christie's most famous moment was him sitting on a beach chair that became a meme. He also wore a baseball outfit that was very snug around the groin area, which made for very horrific photos that went around the web.
