Chris Christie Knew and He Lied About It

I don't think the 2016 Presidential Race matters right now. What matters is whether or not Chris Christie will still be in politics a month from now. A week from now. I mean, holy crap.

He knew.

Chris Christie knew and he lied about it and David Wildstein is ready to squeal like the archetypal stool pigeon.

Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J., knew about the lane closings on the George Washington Bridge as they were happening, the former Port Authority official who oversaw the closings said Friday, adding that he has the evidence to prove it,the New York Times reports.

The attorney for David Wildstein, who was appointed by Christie to the Port Authority and later resigned after the scandal broke, said in a letter released that "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."

“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, according to the Times.

Christie explicitly said during the Jan. 9 news conference that he had "no knowledge or involvement in this issue, in its planning or its execution" and said he didn't know that anyone on his staff was involved in the closings until the day before.

Plenty of liars get elected President. Plenty of liars keep their jobs. Chris Christie shouldn't be one of them.
