Rachel Maddow Tells Backstory of Charles Kushner Prosecution

Rachel Maddow tells the backstory of Chris Christie’s criminal prosecution of Donald Trump’s son-in-law’s father, Charles Kushner and looks at new reports of the purging of Chris Christie’s work on President-elect Trump’s transition to the White House.

Per an article posted at theguardian.com “Christie’s ousting is thought to be the result of a feud with Kushner. As a federal prosecutor, Christie prosecuted Kushner’s father, Charles, who was convicted and jailed on charges of tax evasion, witness tampering and illegal campaign contributions. He got two years in jail, and was released after one. While he was in jail, Kushner took over the running of his father’s property business. Earlier this week, two more senior members of Trump’s team were sacked. They were Mike Rogers, who had been handling national security, and Matthew Freedman, a lobbyist and liaison with business and foreign governments. Both were allies of Christie”.
