New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said on Sunday that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonCan Republicans handle the aftermath of Donald Trump?

“No one is above the law,” Christie told host Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.”


“Unfortunately with the Obama administration, there has been lawlessness in this country,” said Christie, a 2016 GOP presidential contender. “Apparently Hillary Clinton has caught this disease as well.”

Christie argued on Sunday that Clinton’s actions as secretary of State flaunted her disregard for the laws governing transparency and national security.

He added that she is now presenting a haughty attitude while defending her technology habits on the 2016 campaign trail.

“The worst part about this is her arrogance,” Christie said. “You have to battle and fight questions from the press for the American people.

“This is not royalty in the United States,” he said, referring to Clinton as “queen.” “This is not a familial ascendancy.

“She’s wiped away tens of thousands of emails that have relevant information because she feels entitled to do that,” Christie added.

Christie then charged that should he win next year’s GOP presidential nomination, he would offer voters a more transparent presidency than Clinton.

“Everything I have done as governor has been an open book and available to people,” he said. “Hillary Clinton is the exact opposite of that.”

Clinton’s standing in multiple national polls is gradually dropping amid voter concerns over her private email server at State.

Christie, meanwhile, ranks 11th out of 17th among the GOP’s crowded presidential field, according to the latest RealClearPolitics of national samplings.
