Chris Christie Stages Mock Prosecution Against Hillary Clinton at GOP Convention

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie devoted his speech to the Republican National Convention to a mock prosecution of Hillary Clinton, going through a list of attacks on the candidate and asking the crowd at the Quicken Loans Arena, “Guilty or not guilty?”

“Guilty!” the crowd shouted.

The convention already had a reality show tinge, and this was in line with a TV courtroom show.

Among other things, Christie blamed Clinton for the rise of ISIS, her use of a private email server, and the turbulence in the Middle East.

“Syria — Imagine this.  She called President Assad a reformer. She called Assad a different kind of leader. There is now 400,000 dead … at the hands of a man Hillary defended.”

“Guilty or not guilty?” he then asked the crowd.

“Guilty!” they shouted.

The speech was in line with other convention speeches meant to elicit crowd response, but this was a bit harsher in tone. At several points he was interrupted by chants of “Lock Her Up! Lock Her Up!”

“We know exactly what four years of Hillary Clinton will bring: all the failures of the Obama years, but with less charm and more lies,” Christie said.
