Chris Christie says Trump needs to show proof of election fraud

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says buddy President Trump should either put up or shut up when it comes to proving election fraud.

“If you’re gonna say those things from behind the podium at the White House — it’s his right to do it, it’s his right to pursue legal action — but show us the evidence,” the Republican presidential adviser said on an ABC News roundtable Thursday night — after Trump claimed at an earlier press conference that he had “so much proof’’ of ballot fraud favoring Democratic foe Joe Biden.

“We’ve heard nothing today about any evidence,’’ Christie said. “I want to know what backs up what [Trump] said.

“As a prosecutor, that’s like asking me to indict someone without showing me any evidence,’’ Christie said.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to be on the ballot a number of times myself. I’ve won, I’ve lost,” Christie said. “And so, as a candidate, you’re even more invested in the integrity of the system.

“If this stuff is going on that the president is talking about, all of us want it ferreted out because it would undercut everything that we believe in in our system.

“If he’s right, I’d be outraged — and so would you,’’ the GOPer told host George Stephanopoulous.

But when the president makes claims without backing them up, “all it does is inflame without informing.’’
