New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie launched an all-out attack to discredit former Port Authority executive David Wildstein and The New York Times late Saturday over a report that the governor knew of last year’s lane closures.
In an email obtained by The Hill to political allies and reporters, Christie’s office dismissed the Times’ “sloppy reporting” and sought to discredit Wildstein, the source of the claims. The email accused Wildstein, the official who personally oversaw the lane closures, of trying to cover himself by laying blame on the governor.
“David Wildstein has been publicly asking for immunity since the beginning, been held in contempt by the New Jersey legislature for refusing to testify, failed to provide this so-called ‘evidence’ when he was first subpoenaed by the NJ Legislature and is looking for the Port Authority to pay his legal bills,” reads the email, titled “5 Things You Should Know About The Bombshell That’s Not A Bombshell.”
“Bottom line – David Wildstein will do and say anything to save David Wildstein,” the email concludes.
The Christie email also takes personal attacks at Wildstein, highlighting past reports that have questioned his own record as Port Authority executive and Mayor of Livingston.
