WASHINGTON — Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Wednesday that it seems like Donald Trump’s final White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, might be cooperating with the federal probe into the former president.

Christie was reacting to a brief exchange captured on video Wednesday morning in Washington between Meadows and an NBC News reporter, who asked Meadows whether he has testified before a federal grand jury.

“I don’t talk about anything J6-related,” Meadows said, referring to special counsel Jack Smith’s probe into Trump’s role in the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol and efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

Asked whether he felt the investigation was appropriate, Meadows walked into a building.
