Not All Republicans Think an Indictment Would Be Politically Beneficial for Trump

Joe Tacopina, former President Trump's defense lawyer, made the case last week that an indictment against the 45th president would "catapult him into the White House." He wasn't alone in that assessment, as many on the left and right believe the former president would only become more popular following such a move by the Soros-backed Manhattan DA. Twitter chief Elon Musk said if an indictment happens, which Trump claims is coming on Tuesday, he "will be re-elected in a landslide victory." And comedian Chris Rock is warning Democrats that arresting Trump would be akin to "arresting Tupac" – "Are you stupid?" he asked.

But not all Republicans believe an indictment would benefit the GOP presidential candidate. Speaking to ABC News's Jonathan Karl about Trump's weekend announcement regarding his allegedly impending arrest and subsequent call for protests, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he didn't think it would be beneficial. 

"I mean, look, he only profits and does well in chaos and turmoil. And so he wants to create the chaos and turmoil on his terms. He doesn't want it on anybody else's terms," he noted. 

Christie continued, "At the end, being indicted never helps anybody. It's not a help. Now, I think that this -- of the three investigations, I think this is the one where people know the most. And so, because they know the most, they're going to take it less seriously." 

Still, Christie said the image of the former president "being processed, fingerprinted, mugshotted… I don't think ever helps anybody."

 The Republican also took a shot at District Attorney Alvin Bragg over his hypocrisy on crime.
