(THE HILL) — Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Sunday warned that President Trump’s “hyperbolic” style could have consequences if he testifies for special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
“One of the things that makes the president who he is is that he’s a salesman, and salesmen at times tend to be hyperbolic,” Christie said during a panel on ABC’s “This Week.”
“That’s OK when you’re working on Congress. It is not OK when you’re sitting talking to federal agents because, 18 U.S.C. 1001 is false statements to federal agents, that’s a crime, that can send you to jail.”
