Republicans broke out into chants of "lock her up" as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie tried to impugn Hillary Clinton's character in his speech to the Republican National Convention Tuesday night in Cleveland.

He was one of the few speakers to energize the crowd, delivering a full-throated takedown of Clinton.

"We didn't disqualify Hillary Clinton to be president of the United States, the facts of her life and career disqualifies her," Christie said.

Christie says as a former federal prosecutor, he wants to hold Clinton accountable for her actions. He laid out what he says are facts about her to "a jury of her peers."

Guilty or not guilty - that's what Christie asked his audience for a verdict about Clinton on her leadership on the Islamic State group, China, and an al-Qaida-linked group in Nigeria.

Each time, delegates are responded with boisterous chants of "guilty."

Christie told the Republican National Convention that Clinton's performance as secretary of state was dismal. He says voters should hold her accountable for failures in Libya, Syria and elsewhere.

Republican activists repeatedly interrupted Chistie with shouts of - "Lock her up."

Christie is firmly behind Republican nominee Donald Trump - and says he's been friends with Trump for 14 years.
