UPDATE:

Original post:

Talking Points Memo is reporting on the testimony of an ex-Christie aide, Christina Renna, given to the New Jersey legislative committee investigating Bridgegate. She worked in the governor's Office of Legislative and Intergovernmental Affairs (IGA) under both Bill Stepien and Bridget Kelly. Among her sworn statements were a few choice words about the slut-shaming gossip sheet whitewash in which Legal Team Christie cleared their client.

Here are a few of those words out of the very mouth of the very ex-Christie aide:

"'Mandatory directive' were not my words," Renna said. "If you notice, they are not in quotation marks. That was Gibson Dunn's words. That was their characterization. They are never words I would have used. I would never use 'mandatory directive,' except in one incident which we can circle back to. They were not my words." Weinberg asked Renna whether she had a chance to correct Gibson Dunn's characterization of her interview before it was released publicly. Renna replied that she had not been given the opportunity.

Christie's legal team had summarized it this way:

Renna believed Stepien kept track of mayors who were not in favor with IGA, but Renna was not privy to that process. But IGA staff would receive mandatory directives along the lines of “do not rush to return this mayor’s phone call.” Renna recalled an IGA staffer asking Renna, “Can we get a list of hands-off mayors?” Renna remembered responding, “You know we won’t get it, and it would change daily anyway.”

Randy M. Mastro, the Team Christie lawyer who led the internal "investigation" of Bridgegate, did say that his exoneration paper was his understanding, his recap, of the interviews he held. But if even an ex-Christie aide is poking holes in Mastro's findings, then it's further confirmation that the "report" was nothing more than a paper sieve. full of holesMore details at the link.
