Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Chris Christie Hit Trump With A Stark Warning In 2017, New Mueller Memos Reveal”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Former New Jersey governor and Trump ally Chris Christie warned the president in 2017 that the “Russia thing” was far from over, despite Trump’s insistence to the contrary, according to a newly released cache of documents from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference.

The documents, released by the Justice Department on Monday in response to a lawsuit by BuzzFeed News and CNN, included almost 300 pages of witness memoranda and notes from the FBI’s interviews with key players in the Mueller probe. The documents included summaries of the bureau’s interviews with Christie, former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and former White Hosue communications director Hope Hicks, among others.

According to the memos, Christie told the FBI that he’d discussed the Mueller investigation with Trump over lunch on Valentine’s Day in 2017. 

“Now that we fired Flynn, the Russia thing is over,” Trump allegedly told Christie, referring to former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s removal from office.

Flynn resigned on Feb. 13, 2017, after misleading Vice President Mike Pence about his conversations with Russia’s then-ambassador to the U.S. Flynn later pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.
