chris christie schultz i know nothing

Mr. Toast

The New York Times has a bombshell about the bridge lane closures and what Chris Christie knew and when he knew it. Hold your ears:

ka-powIn a letter released by his lawyer, the official, David Wildstein, a high school friend of Mr. Christie’s who was appointed with the governor’s blessing at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which controls the bridge, described the order to close the lanes as “the Christie administration’s order” 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” three weeks ago.

Go read. Now.

So it looks like Wildstein is looking to make a deal or he wouldn't be spilling the beans. Apparently, he claims that there is correspondence that can prove his assertions contesting "the accuracy of the statements the governor made."

Also, MSNBC's Michael Isikoff is reporting that Christie's former campaign manager, Bill Stepien, is invoking his 5th Amendment rights, and he is refusing to turn over subpoenaed documents.

Governor "Heartbroken" has a lot of 'splainin' to do after that bogus press conference that so many Republicans fell for hook, line, and sinker.

Stay tuned for court battles galore.

    I get the sense that Wildstein sees himself as the guy who throws people under bridges, not the other way around. He's no sweet Linda Kasabian.

    Maybe Christie's disparaging remarks about their non-existent high school friendship were the last straw.
