TRENTON, N.J. — Gov. Chris Christie made inaccurate statements during a news conference about the lane closures near the George Washington Bridge, according to a letter released Friday by a lawyer for a former Christie loyalist who ordered the closures and resigned amid the ensuing scandal that has engulfed the New Jersey governor's administration.

Well, if the attorney attacking Christie says it happened, It must have.

What did he know and when did he know it? Let's see the evidence then listen for the explanation. Should be very entertaining.

Great!! Lets keep picking on Christie to eliminate his chances in the election. Lets see now... Who will be the next candidate fro Illinois where all "good" politicians come from? (just joking) Ignore the liberal's attacks and support Christie for president.

Boy is this ex-official (and his lawyer) going to be rich after this or what? I can't believe they managed to destroy the only conservative candidate we had. We need to eliminate both political parties and elect candidates on their own merit.

I'm not a big Chrisie fan, but it would have been nice to get half the coverage they are giving this to Benghazi, Fast & Furious, IRS Gate, Spying, etc. Guess if it's negative news about Obama and Democrats, the media doesn't believe it's newsworthy. Liberals are such hypocrites.

If he knew about this, and would have come clean, he could have gotten past it - if he knew about it and lied throughout his news conference, he will never get past it. Which would be too bad, after voting dem the last few elections, I was looking forward to putting Christie in office.

If this is true - Christie has got to go. But GOP , you better learn your lesson. The Obama super pacs will ruin anyone you put out there as a candidate. It's time to start ripping into Hillary's closets. They are loaded with skeletons. Don't wait and don't skip this exercise. We don't need Hillary.
