Donald Trump appears to be claiming that he didn’t return the myriad boxes containing classified documents to the Justice Department because he needed to sort through them first and he was very busy.
Those excuses haven’t held much water (and the former President appeared to have incriminated himself while making them).
Now, a super PAC backing Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie is slamming Trump over those comments and what they mean as he prepared to stand trial on 37 felony counts.
“Donald Trump had a choice: comply with a federal grand jury subpoena or play golf. He chose golf,” says the narrator in the ad, which then shows Christie suggesting in a recent interview that Trump should have “skipped a couple of rounds of golf and gone through the boxes to respond to a subpoena from a grand jury.”
“Donald Trump had a choice: look for his missing golf shirts in the boxes of national security secrets and return them or play golf. He chose golf,” the ad, titled “Golf Shirts,” says.
