Christie ally claims evidence that governor knew of bridge closures

February 1, 2014

There is evidence that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) knew about the lane closures on the George Washington Bridge that were orchestrated by his affiliates for political retribution, according to the former port authority official who ordered the shutdown.

The New York Times obtained a letter from the attorney for David Wildstein, a former Christie appointee at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, that alleges “evidence exists” to prove the governor knew about the closures. If true, that would run contrary to Christie’s repeated claims that he had no prior knowledge of the lane closures.

Wildstein, a former ally and childhood friend of the governor, said it was the “Christie administration’s order” to close the bridge and said “evidence exists as well tying Mr. Christie to having knowledge of the lane closures, during the period when the lanes were closed, contrary to what the governor stated publicly in a two-hour press conference” earlier this month.

“Mr. Wildstein contests the accuracy of various statements that the governor made about him and he can prove the inaccuracy of some,” the letter added.

Christie’s office denied Wildstein’s claims, and said the letter “confirms what the governor has said all along,” that “he had absolutely no prior knowledge of the lane closures before they happened and whatever Mr. Wildstein’s motivations were for closing them to begin with.”

    This will finish Christie. About time the truth came out about him. How is it that all these crooks keep getting in politics and keep getting elected. How come an honest man is never elected? Our entire government needs to be flushed right down the drain along with the other shi_.

    WHO GIVES A $HIT???? Can you name ONE DEMOCRAT that hasn’t done 10,000 times more CORRUPT & DESTRUCTIVE things? We have a president that BRAGS about murdering U.S. citizens without a trial, that laughs about trampling the Constitution & going around congress, that flouts the LAW & does whatever he pleases & is a virulent RACIST! Seriously, this is SO FU CK ING RIDICULOUS, so blown out of proportion & SO a LEFTIST PROPAGANDA SPEWING MEDIA CREATED scandal, much like the Scooter Libby ridiculousness & Bush LEGALLY firing federal attorneys. How can anyone be so brain dead as to not realize it is just another media smear campaign against Republicans?
    You know how great it would be to live in a country that could actually critically THINK, READ or reason above a 6th grade level? A country whose citizens didn’t let a T.V. & a bunch of brainless morons dictate their culture? A country that doesn’t WANT ELITIST politicians to wipe their as ses for them?

    Don’tcha just love it when they say they have evidence and don’t tell it!!??, I’m no Christie fan, but this is nothing but trashing him…….IF THEY HAVE PROOF THEN SPILL IT!!

    If it’s true then he should be censured. However, there is proof that Obama knew about a ton of things, The same for Hillary. Yet nothing is being done. Why do you suppose that is. Those that should be held responsible aren’t. Yet somehow this is so much worse than F&F, Benghazui, IRS, NSA, etc. Losts of lives have been lost & the IRS is still after conservatives along with anyone that publicly is against Oblamo. Yet all the focus is on Christie. Hmm surely we’re letting Hillary get away with murder & going to prosecute someone for closing a bridge. Great logic.

      There is the son of a terrorist that said his father had some evidence that would put Obama in prison and was threatening to release it. His terrorist father was in a prison in Egypt, and lo and behold McCain and two others showed up there. I will bet anything that he was released from prison before McCain left Egypt. Which means that Obama made a deal with a terrorist to keep the truth about him private. Money may have changed hands too. You know, a little here and a little there. Small payments to make sure the truth stays hidden.

    If he had lost the goverenership,it would be belevable.Sounds like Hilarly goons in action to discredit his character.With the help of MisleadSNBC and their creative ways of edit and paste techniques and mainstream media,it will be difficult to clear his name.

  • BH says:

    Read the released portion of the letter closely. It doesn’t say he knew about it before the closures, only that he knew about the closures during the time of the closures. Duh, it probably was the 200 calls per hour to his office wanting to know what was going on that tipped him off. I’m not a fan of his, but this sounds like a witch hunt. And this letter sounds like a person looking for immunity.
