Appearing on “This Week” former Trump ally Chris Christie argued that the President has committed an impeachable offeense.
“What we had was an incitement to riot at the United States Capitol. We had people killed, and to me there’s not a whole lot of question here,” Christie said.
Asked if Trump committed an impeachable offense, Christie responded “If inciting to insurrection isn’t, then I don’t really know what is.”

“I mean it is a national disgrace… that the flag at the White House is not half-staff for that Capitol Hill Police officer who gave his life in protecting one of our institutions of democracy,” Christie later added.
“If we’re having to fit of pique, and that’s why we’re not putting a flag at half-staff, it’s just another example of why people think that these decisions are not being made on the merits,” he concluded.
