Former Governor Chris Christie’s new book Let Me Finish: ”Trump, the Kushners, Bannon, New Jersey, and the Power of In-Your-Face Politics is scheduled for publication on January 29. We will have to wait with baited breath to read it, or just not give a damn about what he says. Whether we like him or not, however, our former leader has the ability to write self-serving but bombastic and attention-grabbing material. Indeed the title of the book has a sensational quality promising us all sorts of dirt and inside information.
“In Let Me Finish, Christie sets the record straight about his tenure as a corruption-fighting prosecutor and a Republican running a Democratic state, as well as what really happened on the 2016 campaign trail and inside Trump Tower.
“Christie takes readers inside the ego-driven battles for Trump’s attention among figures like Steve Bannon, Corey Lewandowksi, Reince Priebus, Kellyanne Conway, Jeff Sessions, and Paul Manafort. He shows how the literal trashing of Christie’s transition plan put the new administration in the hands of self-serving amateurs, all but guaranteeing the Trump presidency’s shaky start.
“Christie also addresses hot-button issues from his own years in power, including what really went down during Bridgegate. And, for the first time, Christie tells the full story of the Kushner saga: how, as a federal prosecutor, Christie put Jared Kushner’s powerful father behind bars–a fact Trump’s son-in-law makes Christie pay for later.
“Packed with news-making revelations and told with the kind of bluntness few politicians can match, Christie’s memoir is an essential guide to understanding the Trump presidency.”
Love him or hate him, it probably will be an interesting read. And although it’s titled Let Me Finish, it likely will not be the last word from this attention-seeking figure.
