In an interview with Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto Coast To Coast” on Monday former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie suggested that former President Donald Trump would be a convicted felon by election day.

Addressing host Neil Cavuto, the GOP presidential candidate stated, “Neil, you got to be for something in this country if you’re going to run for public office. Let me tell you what I am for, first and foremost. I’m a constitutionalist. I believe in the Constitution over men and women.”

Cavuto then asked how a potential conviction might affect Trump’s candidacy, to which Christie responded, “How about this? He’s going to go on trial the day before Super Tuesday. I believe he’s going to be convicted in that January 6th trial in Washington, D.C., predominantly because Mark Meadows, as you know, has signed an agreement — his former chief of staff, one of the founders of the Freedom Caucus — is going to testify against him! He’s going to be convicted. Imagine this: If he’s our nominee, he won’t be able to vote for himself.”

The conversation shifted to whether Trump could still serve as president if convicted. Christie affirmed, “Yes,” but emphasized the impact a conviction might have on the former president’s reelection bid.

“I think a conviction is different for two reasons,” he explained. “One, it won’t be a liberal prosecutor talking about him anymore. It will be his former chief of staff saying he, Mark Meadows, committed crimes — because you wouldn’t need immunity if you hadn’t committed crimes — and that Donald Trump committed crimes on his watch. That’s very different for conservative voters to hear that from Mark Meadows than to hear it from Jack Smith.”

He continued, “Secondly, it’s a jury of your peers convicting you. Not, again, the two-tiered system of justice that a lot of people are concerned about. I think it will be very different. The question’s going to be, is there going to be somebody that’s willing to stand up to him until that moment so that it’s not decided?”

This is not the first time Christie would suggest that the indictments against Trump will land him a conviction. Speaking on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” in October, he previously predicted that Meadows’ cooperation with prosecutors in the federal 2020 election theft case could pose significant challenges for the GOP frontrunner.

“This is deadly. It’s done. He’s going to be convicted. It’s over,” he said.

Last month, he repeated the same sentiment, adding that Trump is just as old for the job as President Joe Biden is.
