    Chris Christie Scandal Is An 'Impeachable Offense' If He Knew, Dem Lawmaker Leading Probe Says

    The Huffington Post | By Chris Gentilviso | 01/11/2014

    Two days after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) claimed he had no knowledge of a political scheme conducted by his aides to cause traffic jams, the lawmaker heading a probe into those actions unraveled a new thread.

    New Jersey Assemblyman John Wisniewski (D) told NBC News Saturday that if Christie was at all aware of his aides' actions, impeachment could emerge as a potential issue.

    "Using the George Washington Bridge, a public resource, to exact a political vendetta, is a crime," Wisniewski said. "Having people use their official position to have a political game is a crime. So if those tie back to the governor in any way, it clearly becomes an impeachable offense."

    "It's hard to really accept the governor's statement that he knew nothing until the other morning," Wisnieswki added.

    During his Thursday press conference, Christie apologized profusely for the conduct of his team members, saying he was "sad" and "heartbroken" by the acts he deemed as betrayal.

    "It is heartbreaking to me that I wasn't told the truth," Christie said. "I'm a very loyal guy, and I expect loyalty in return. And lying to me is not an exhibition of loyalty."

    Additionally, the Newark (N.J.) Star-Ledger reported Saturday that Wisniewski said additional subpoenas are likely to go out Monday or Tuesday. That move would arrive ahead of a special session reauthorizing the state transportation committee's subpoena power.

    Among those who could be subject to those subpoenas are former Deputy Chief of Staff Bridget Anne Kelly, whose employment was terminated earlier this week, and Michael Drewniak, who serves as chief spokesperson for Christie.

    "Nothing will happen until Monday," Wisniewski said, according to the paper.

    • EVEN LIMBAUGH'S CRITICIZING FOX NEWS OVER CHRISTIE COVERAGE

      Limbaugh Thinks Fox News Is Too Pro-Christie

      The Huffington Post | By Jack Mirkinson | 01/10/2014

      Rush Limbaugh took Fox News to task for what he said was its blinkered, "predictable" coverage of the Chris Christie bridge scandal.

      The network has drawn attention for the relative lack of air time it's given to the Christie story, but Limbaugh had other issues with the way Fox News was handling it.

      "Fox has always been unpredictable, but now they're starting to become [predictable]," he said. He added that it had been easy to predict what the "Republican line" about Christie's Thursday press conference would be: "Man oh man, this guy, greatest leader, greatest potential leader the Republican party has fielded in who knows how many years...he buried the thing!"

      LIMBAUGH WONDERED ALOUD HOW "LEARNED" PUNDITS ON FOX NEWS COULD THINK CHRISTIE HAD PUT THE BRIDGE SCANDAL BEHIND HIM.

      'I’M READING SOME OF THESE COMMENTS THEY’RE MAKING, AND I’M IN DISBELIEF!” HE SAID.

    • Chris Christie Mentor Says Bridge Scandal Poses Question: 'Do You Really Want That In Your President?'
      The Huffington Post | By Chris Gentilviso
      Posted: 01/11/2014 1:10 pm EST | Updated: 01/11/2014 4:31 pm EST

      As a week loaded with questions for and apologies by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) drew to a close, one of his key mentors emerged with doubts about how the George Washington Bridge scandal would affect any 2016 ambitions.

      In an interview with the Washington Post published Saturday, former New Jersey Gov. Tom Kean Sr. (R) painted the either-or picture for Christie's presidential hopes, highlighting how the tumult from this traffic issue should raise caution.

      “On the one hand, I think he’s got a lot to offer," Kean Sr. said. "I think he’s the most able politician since Bill Clinton. On the other hand, you look at these other qualities and ask, 'do you really want that in your president?'”

      Earlier in the week, Kean Sr. expressed similar sentiments to the Associated Press, saying that barring new details, he thought Christie would "survive" the bridge scandal. Yet the events set precedent for a thin margin of error in the future.

      "If there's a pattern of these things, if other incidents emerge with similar characteristics, that's going to be a real problem," Kean Sr. told the AP.

      Kean Sr.'s relationship with Christie reached rocky ground in November, when the governor maneuvered to ouster his son, Tom Kean Jr., as GOP leader of the New Jersey state Senate. The move left Kean Sr. "as surprised as I've ever been in my life in politics," the AP noted.

      Christie's involvement with Kean Sr. dates back to age 14, when he was a budding youngster looking for some help getting into politics.

      "'Sir, I want to get involved in politics and I don't know how to do it,' " Kean told the AP, recounting Christie's words in a 2010 interview. "I said, basically, 'I'm thinking of running for governor. If you want to find out, get in the car. I'm going up to Bergen County. Come with me and see if you like it."
