NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Former Gov. Chris Christie said President Trump’s team that has been mounting unsuccessful legal challenges over the election results is a “national embarrassment.”

The former New Jersey governor—a Republican and Trump ally—said Sunday that the legal team hasn’t shown any proof of massive voter fraud.

“Quite frankly, the conduct of the president’s legal team has been a national embarrassment,” Christie told ABC’s “This Week.”

“They allege fraud outside the courtroom but when they go inside the courtroom, they don’t plead fraud and they don’t argue fraud,” the governor said.

“Listen, I’ve been a supporter of the president. I voted for him twice. But elections have consequences, and we cannot continue to act as if something happened here that didn’t happen,” he said.

The former governor said, “the country is what has to matter the most.”

“As much as I’m a strong Republican and I love my party, it’s the country that has to come first,” he said.

Christie said the party needs to put its energy towards winning the two Georgia runoff elections on Jan. 5 so it can keep its majority in the Senate.
