let's check in on chris christie

Want to know what Chris Christie will do once his term is up? Too bad.

Ever since he went from being a Donald Trump foe in the early days of the 2016 presidential race to eating meatloaf whenever the president orders him to, rumors have swirled that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) will somehow wind up a member of the Trump administration.

When asked on Thursday if he could potentially replace James Comey as the next FBI director, Christie told reporters that he will stay on as governor until the end of his final term in January, before bluntly declaring, "and in terms of what I'm going to do afterwards? None of your business."

Christie also stayed mum on whether he thought it was a good idea to dismiss Comey, saying, "It's not my place to say if I agree or disagree." He did feel comfortable sharing that he thinks there's no need for a special prosecutor to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, and anyone who believes otherwise wants to turn the investigation into "a political circus."
