Christie: Electoral Objections Not 'Unusual,' 'Go Nowhere'

Congress has often featured partisan objections to the certification of Electoral College votes in American history, but they end in failure, according to former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

"It's not unusual for politicians in Congress to play politics, and that's what's going on," Christie told ABC's "This Week," noting Democrats objected in 2016 and 2004 in the past two GOP presidential victories they did not agree with.

Christie, a former transition official for President Donald Trump, has been very critical of the president since joining ABC as a paid analyst. He repeated his oft-held mantra, siding with Democrats and the mainstream media, saying the voter fraud just is not widespread.

The objections, like the Democrats' in past presidential elections, will be raised and fall without issue.

"The reason it will go nowhere is because there's been no evidence of widespread fraud," Christie said in a panel discussion. "And that’' been determined by Republican and Democratic governors across the country.

"It's been determined, most importantly, by the Attorney General of the United States, Bill Barr."

Christie maintains the status quo on U.S. elections will prevail.

"What matters the most, and what makes us the most vibrant democracy in the world, is it will be confirmed in a bipartisan fashion next week, by both the House and Senate, by both Republicans and Democrats," he added.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is leading 11 Senate Republicans in posing an objection to the quick certification of the Electoral College results, seeking an audit of the election results and a congressional inquiry into the Trump campaign's allegations of a rigged election.
