Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Tuesday maintained that President Donald Trump should not meet with special counsel Robert Mueller.
In an interview on ABC's "Good Morning America," Christie said that Trump has nothing to answer for given the absence of "credible allegation" to this point.
"I don't think there's been any credible allegations against the president of the United States, and I don't think the president of the United States — unless there are credible allegations, which I don't believe there are — should be sitting across from a special counsel.
"The presidency is different; I don't think they should do that," Christie said.
Trump has been mulling whether to meet with the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election, most recently asserting that he was "looking forward to it," something his attorney later walked back.
"Robert Mueller is not someone to be trifled with," Christie said on GMA. "He's not someone who takes lightly the words of anybody who he's looking at. What I've said all along is, in an investigation like this, there's nothing you can do to make it shorter; there's lots of things you can do to make it longer."
However, though Christie said there's nothing so far that reaches the "very high standard" of obstruction of justice against Trump, there's still a long way to go.
"We've gotta continue to watch it. Because the one thing I can tell you for sure is ... only Bob Mueller really knows what he knows, and we won't know it for awhile," Christie said. "So everyone who speculates about this stuff? They're throwing darts at a wall with a blindfold on. Bob Mueller knows what's going on."
