“Reportedly what Mark Meadows is testifying, that you knew all along that what you were saying was not backed up by the facts," Christie said.
"Donald Trump is in very, very big trouble. He is going to face real jail time for doing this if that’s what’s proven in court," he added.

The news comes as former Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis made a plea deal in the Georgia Trump case.
"Former Trump attorney Jenna Ellis became the fourth defendant to plead guilty in the sprawling racketeering election interference case in Georgia, tearfully admitting Tuesday that she made up details about election fraud and saying she regretted representing the former president," ABC News reported.
"She is pleading guilty to one count of aiding and abetting false statements and writings, and will receive probation in exchange for her testimony in the case," it continued.

The deal came after former Trump lawyer Sidney Powell also pleaded guilty to reduce charges in a deal in the Georgia case.
"Lawyer Sidney Powell pleaded guilty to reduced charges Thursday over efforts to overturn Donald Trump’s loss in the 2020 election in Georgia, becoming the second defendant in the sprawling case to reach a deal with prosecutors," the Associated Press reported.
Trump faces more than 90 charges in multiple cases, including his current New York fraud trial and indictments in Florida, Georgia and Washington.
Despite the many charges, Trump still believes he will win his comeback bid for the White House next year, even if he faces real jail time in the process of returning to Washington. If so, he'll make history as the first president to be elected following two impeachment attempts and numerous charges, including potential jail time.
