Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Sunday blasted prosecutors for bringing prices towards Kyle Rittenhouse, claiming that they had been appearing on the “whims of the public.”

Christie, a former prosecutor, argued that it was clear that the proof didn’t warrant the fees towards Rittenhouse, 18, for fatally taking pictures two males and injuring a 3rd throughout riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

“Those charges should never have been brought. And, you know, prosecutors are not supposed to give in to the whims of the public,” Christie stated on “Fox News Sunday.”

“They’re not supposed to give in — give in to public opinion. You’re supposed to dispassionately look at the facts and the evidence and decide whether they support charges.”
