President Trump should not grant an interview to Special Counsel Robert Mueller for the latter's probe into Russian election meddling and alleged Trump campaign collusion, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) advised Tuesday on ABC News.

"I don't think there's been any credible allegations against the president of the United States. And I don't think the president of the United States — unless there are credible allegations, which I don't believe there are — should be sitting across from a special counsel," Christie said on Good Morning America, arguing that Trump's interview could prolong Mueller's investigation, but will not hasten its end.

"The presidency is different. I don't think they should do that," he continued. "And I think the administration has been cooperative in other ways. Lots of people have gone to meet with him. I think the president's a different story." Watch an excerpt of Christie's comments below. Bonnie Kristian
