Skip to comments.Put Christie under oath
Posted on 02/01/2014 6:36:05 AM PST by jimbo123
All the kings horses and all the kings men will never put Chris Christie together again if New Jerseys governor fails to refute the accusation that he knew of the George Washington Bridge lane closures as they were taking place.
In that event, Christies governorship is over and he should prepare to face a federal criminal probe as a private citizen. Resignation would be a must. Otherwise, impeachment would be a snap.
Christie stands on the brink of ruin thanks to David Wildstein, the high school pal who, as his Port Authority enforcer, ordered the closures that plunged Fort Lee into four days of gridlock.
Wildsteins lawyer on Friday released a letter that paints Christie as one of the most bold-faced liars in modern political history. And Christies response, amounting to one great big dodge, did nothing to dispel the notion.

I assume he did it and he should pay the price
but obambam has done much worse and caused the deaths of many more people and he should pay the price too but I don’t hear anybody talking about that
Not at all a Christie fan, but this is peanuts compared to the ongoing daily corruption committed by Democrats, and their willing accomplices in the media.
Put Christie under oath, and put Obama under oath.
Unfunny Laurel and Hardy.
That don’t mean a thing. Christie is a closet Democrat at heart. Oath didn’t mean anything to Clinton (either one), nor did/does mean anything to Obama.
It would only mean something to an honorable man.
Never happen. Insisting on doing so would be "raaaaacist."
They waited until he signed the NJ Amnesty bill before they threw under the bus.
The day after he signed the Amnesty bill = Under The Bus.
I am trying to avoid getting into what the meaning of the word “is” is.
But from the article:
I knew nothing about this. And until it started to be reported in the papers about the closure, but even then I was told this was a traffic study.
which means Christie said, he know nothing until the papers reported on the closure
which is basically what the attorney says
“Attorney Alan Zegas stated that evidence exists . . . tying Mr. Christie to having knowledge of the lane closures, during the period when the lanes were closed
In my opinion, knowing about the 4 day lane closures until it is in the newspapers is the same as knowledge of lane closures during the period when the lanes are closed.
He lied about a traffic jam,ok if that is now the standard then where is the Commander in Chief on that scale? Or maybe the former Secretary of State? How about the National security advisor? Obama,Hillary,Suasan Rice lied and people died,millions of Americans have lost health insurance and that is costing lives,So I’m waiting for the calls for these reprobates to be drummed out of office
Not a Christie fan but the letter does nothing in the way of moving the ball beyond where it was. It says his administration knew. Cool, but we already knew that. The question is whether he personally knew. The letter does nothing to advance that.
Of course, the SOU flopped and the Messiah is tanking. Voila, it’s back to Christie 24/7. It’s on to prosecuting and investigating any Republican who might take out their precious Hillary. It’s on to sicking the IRS on us and indicting film makers and Fox News reporters who do bot tow the party line of his majesty. To the Tower with them all, that is the Chicago way.
Christie should resign but Harry Reid is fine. An traffic jam, that would have occurred anyway. You should see the one’s caused by union workers who will only work during rush hour.
Sorry folks, whether you like or hate Christie he has become the latest example of the democrat prosecution machine as it marches to illegalize the opposition. Tom DeLay says hi.
We can NEVER FORGIVE the RNC. They propped up Christie's campaign to bloat his numbers when he was a sure win. Meanwhile, they starved the VA governor candidate of the financial support that problably would've given him the win.
Christie's bad news. His embrace of Obama during Sandy is beginning to look like a dirty trick to open up a path to the presidency for himself in four years.
This is all unfounded speculation. I look forward to the data proving me wrong.
Liars lie. So what good will putting them under oath do.
Perjury is a way of life with politicians in general and Lawyer Politicians in particular. Penalties? Disbar them. Riiight. From what? Neither practice law. Impeach them? Christie? Probably. Obama? Snicker, snicker, snort.
I agree. I don’t like Christi, well I don’t trust him, lets say it that way, but he was starting to come out in good numbers something Hilliary cant afford, after all, her highness is EXPECTING to be the next Queen of the Land, to carry on what King Smell Bad has done.....
For this point if Christie makes it, I will be supporting him, we don’t need The Queen to run our Country...
Just another example of how willfully ignorant the media has become. If somebody makes a big accusation against you, it’s up to them to prove it, not to you to disprove it.
And why did it take him three weeks to pile on? I suppose it takes that long to wait for Christie to have his say, then to work up an email around it that muddies the waters so people just throw up their hands and say, well there has to be something there, that email is pretty damning even if it isn’t a smoking gun.
Put ‘em both under sodium pentothol.
Exactly. The RNC money that was diverted from Cuccinelli went to Christie’s crony consultants, advertising agencies, media buying firms and liberal media radio and tv stations. The same liberal media radio and tv stations that are now attacking Fat Boy. To hell with Chris Christie, Reince Priebus and Karl Rove.
Karl Rove and the RNC gave millions of dollars in advertising spending to the same tv and radio stations that are taking down fat boy. The RNC and Karl Rove funded the liberal media take down of Christie. It’s too funny.
I never believed this was JUST about pay back against a Dem mayor who wouldn’t support Christie. Not saying there wasn’t some spite involved. But it’s always seemed to me to be more about $$$$$.
I think when all the facts come out...this story is going to be a classic corruption case. Christie and the NJ Dems are, IMO, corrupt individuals who need to be held accountable.
Re: Christie as a prez nominee, I wouldn’t ever vote for him in a primary, so of course I don’t give a fig if he’s toast as a future R nominee. Buh bye.
“Not at all a Christie fan, but this is peanuts compared to the ongoing daily corruption committed by Democrats, and their willing accomplices in the media.”
Its peanuts but if true its still corruption. We don’t need another corrupt man GOP or Dem in the Whitehouse.
Christie = Giant loaf of TOAST
The overplaying of this issue is making me sympathetic to Christie....only in that it is the standard playbook to discredit anyone on the Republican side. There are boilerplate tactics. The new ‘contradiction’ this week keeps it in the news another couple weeks. I was a Christie fan when he started and soured on him greatly the past three years. He’s as good as it gets in NJ, but I have no interest in him entering national politics. That said, this is getting into the zone where we have to fight back here to point out the tactics...they do it again to whoever’s next on the list. Maybe Scott Walker, maybe Cruz. Our side’s potential leaders get knocked off in a variety of sleazy coordinated attacks like this. Part of me has enjoyed Christie suffering here because he thought he was playing up to the left to curry favor...and they are taking him out just like anyone else. The other side realizes there will be another attack just like this in the next 12 months and want to cut out these take-downs.
I could care less about Christie, one way or the other!!! But......I am overjoyed the Obamabot media is spending so much time on him....and, also that Wendy Davis nutcase....down Texas way!!! The media attempt to divert attention form failed POTUS Obama is totally wasted!!! One....they are not going to succeed in bringing Christie down....and, if they did...no one cares a hoot. and....they are not going to save Wendy Davis from her lies!!!
However....the Obamabot media is trying to provide cover for Obama....except it will not work!!! Obama, himself is now a true “Lame Duck’ POTUS. He is toast......and, he will bring large sections of the Democrat Party down with him, come November, 2014!!!! The Christie deal is a waste of time!!!
I’m not sure why anyone thinks putting men such as these under oath means anything at all.
Exactly. Put that Fat Ba$tard under oath.
Where is all that RINO support for Christie?
Where are all the GOP Governors?
The House could Hillary under oath anytime they want to.
They are scared of Hillary.
Under 6’ of dirt sounds better!
Agreed. I’m just pointing out the massive hypocrisy that is exercised by the Left.
Put him on a polygraph, progressive lie.
Yes if it was Cuomo they would not even report on it.
You got that right! I was once taken to court by none other than “conservative” Jesse lee Peterson radio talk show host..small time...for some harmless emails of disagreements I had about the control he wields over his congregation , and never was I even rude. He proceeded to perjur himself several times, attempting to paint me as a nut and possible killer. The oath he took meant zero to him, to tell the truth. Only his agenda mattered.
“Be careful how you pick your friends” If you hang out with Dems you will begin to behave like them.
And even then, what I was told was that it was a traffic study. And there was no evidence to the contrary until yesterday that was brought to my attention or anybody elses attention.
As I read his statement, he didn't say that he didn't know that there was a traffic jam on the George Washington Bridge, which it sounds like the media is trying to say he said. There is always a traffic jam on the George Washington Bridge, so it would be ridiculous for him to claim that. He said he didn't know that his staff arranged a traffic jam to punish the Fort Lee mayor -- which makes sense since he fired those responsible.
Meanwhile, NJ Sen. Robert Menendez has paid a campaign donor $11,000 back for private jet trips http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/Senator-Robert-Menendez-Reimburses-Free-Private-Trip-Campaign-Donor-243025191.html.
Odd coincidence. Wildstein's lawyer -- trying to get his legal fees paid for by the Port Authority -- includes something at the bottom of a letter that's not news, and it becomes headline news.
When the media creates a lot of smoke -- maybe there's something else behind the smoke?
Cucinelli was never going to win. And you can thank Bob McDonell’s wife for that, not the NRC.
The democrats would have merely advanced the indictment of McDonell and his wife up a few weeks.
If the GOP is going to run a fat white guy for Prez, it will be RUSH!!!!!!!!
Christie would be insane to be put under oath: as soon as he swears he knew nothing, the some Democrat prosecutor would bribe or threaten someone into swearing he knew.
“A wimp and a blimp.”
“Gregg, what is the worst fraternity on campus?”
“Id like you to meet Mohammed, Jugdish, Sidney and Clayton ”
What, he won’t lie under oath? Nonsense - everyone lies under oath. We need a perfect lie detector to be invented, and have all prospective politicians subjected to it when they file for election (reference the “veridicator” in H. Beam Piper’s “Little Fuzzy”)
