“These are all people who have never been in government before. And so they’re going to need to learn these things. And I don’t think you get the learning curve just by winning the election,” Christie said during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“You develop experiences over time which tell you that. I can guarantee this: I don’t think the chief of staff will ever have that kind of conversation with the FBI, with an FBI personnel again, nor should he.”

Christie went on to say that White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus has “great integrity,” adding that he doesn’t think he did anything wrong.

“But I do think that it’s something that perception matters and we got to try it differently,” he said.
