Chris Christie refrained from saying "I told you so" when he introduced Ivanka Trump at an appearance earlier this week.
He had every right to, especially when it comes to the recent developments concerning his old rival Jeff Sessions.
During the presidential campaign last year, the governor of New Jersey and the then-Senator from Alabama were among the first Republicans to back Donald Trump who said Christie would make "a great attorney general".
Christie lost out to Sessions, who has spent the past year trying to win a place among the worst cabinet picks ever.
Sessions hadn't made it through his confirmation hearing before he made the second biggest mistake in recent political history when he assured Democratic Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota that he had had no contact with Russians during the campaign.
Franken hadn't asked him whether he had any such contacts, but Sessions offered that information anyway. When it later surfaced that Sessions had had a couple of perfunctory meetings with the Russian ambassador, Sessions went to make the biggest mistake in recent political history, recusing himself and letting a special prosecutor take over the probe.
Trump was livid over that dumb move. But it was the Donald's own dumb move that led to the debacle now dominating the headlines.
That move was to name a sitting senator to his cabinet. That put Sessions' safe seat up for grabs. Now it looks like the Democrats might grab it, cutting the GOP margin to a razor-thin 51-49.
That's because of allegations that the GOP nominee, Roy Moore, sexually harassed some teenaged women 40 years ago.
Sessions has come out against Moore, saying "I have no reason to doubt these young women."
And I have no reason to doubt Sessions should have stayed in the Senate.

“Chris Christie Would Have Made A Better Attorney General Than Jeff Sessions”
Hard to think of someone who wouldn’t.
Not sure that a wishy washy guy on guns would have been the right choice either.
Giuliani or judge Jeanine, we need an unrelenting bulldog not a rat in piube clothing
A week-old meatloaf would make a better A.G. than Sessions
Yes, time to retire Sessions, put Christie or anyone in as attorney general.
He “would have” made a better AG? He still would. I wonder if PDJT has done any succession planning in the event Sessions has to go.
I like it a lot that AG Sessions isn't following marching orders from the Executive Branch. A more valid concern is why are Jared and Ivanka still on the WH team.
He never would have been confirmed. Just my opinion.
I have faith in Jeff Sessions and it’s because of something I was told during the Moore Ten Commandments battle. I went with a few people I knew on the net to D.C. when they did the rally up there. One of the things we did was to get with others from our state and visit our reps. I was with a group that went to Senator Sessions office. Unfortunately Sessions was out of town, but we met with his representative. One outspoken lady in our group called Sessions out for not doing more to fight against corruption. I will never forget what the guy told us. He said Sessions is fighting every day against it, but that the scope of corruption was so large that they needed help and sadly were not finding much. I believe that is why Sessions lined up with Trump so early. He has finally found the person to help him fight it. I believe that Sessions is doing a lot behind the scenes that must be kept quiet for now. I stand with him and Trump!
“Not sure that a wishy washy guy on guns would have been the right choice either.”
Yah, agree. Besides I would be concerned about what we don’t know about Chris. New Jersey boy...
A flaming bag of dog poop would have been a better AG than Jeff Sessions.
With all the damage he is doing to our nation and the Trump presidency...why are there still FReepers who sjpport him.
He is NOT an honorable man. He is a back-stabbing weasel.
Christi would have made himself the center of every story. No President is going to tolerate that for very long. Trump was right not to pick him - for anything.
I love all the certainty about Sessions. We finally have an attorney general who isnt a grandstanding, corrupt, buffoon like Holder, yet conservatives refuse to be patient and give him time to work.
How do you line up the evidence beyond doubt if you don't pursue the evidence you already have as well as allegations against her?
Her staff and other witnesses aren't just going to march in the door with all their records.
Ann Coulter would have made a better AG than Sessions who is a gutless worm and the cause of 90% of the chaos.
You dont have a clue what hes doing behind the scenes (and neither do I). Hes being treated shamefully.
Sessions is screwing up TRUMP's agenda!
