Bridgegate: Chris Christie investigates himself and concludes he did nothing wrong

March 27, 2014

 This reeks of the Department of Injustice, the State Department, and the IRS conducting internal investigations and finding themselves innocent of the charges. Much like those scandals, Chris Christie hired a law firm to investigate Bridgegate and that law firm concluded that Chris Christie was not involved. Color me skeptical of the finding.

  The law firm is defending its finding despite the fact that, according to the article I linked to above, several key figures in the scandal did not cooperate with the investigation. The law firm is also claiming that it was not hired by Chris Christie personally but rather by the Office of the Governor but I fail to see a discernible difference between the two.

  And of course we know that the threat of retribution would never be held over their heads if they did not come to the proper conclusion. Oh wait…..that is exactly what Bridgegate is all about in the first place.

  As long as politicians, and Federal agencies, are allowed to investigate themselves, or in Chris Christie’s case hire the firm which investigates them, we will never learn the truth and the usurpation of power will go on, for all intents and purposes, unchecked.

  But of course that is what the desire is, and has been, all along. It is up to the American people, and the constituents of these politicians, to hold these people accountable because they cannot be trusted to hold the moral high ground they are entrusted with in the first place.

  While Bridgegate is not as serious a scandal as is Fast and Furious, Benghazi, or the IRS targeting scandal it is still an example, if it is true and I believe it is, of a politician abusing his or her power and it cannot be understated that it is beyond acceptable. I want them all to be held accountable for their actions and their deeds and I do not think that is too much to ask of our elected officials and the people they hire to conduct the business of the people.

      Very interesting, funny how the media hasn’t covered this story yet when Bush and Rumsfeld were charged with war crimes in international courts it was all over the news! Thanks for sharing.

    Too bad. I’d sort of liked Christie. Now we’ve got to find someone else.

    With any politician you’re always going to have a certain amount of b.s. The good ones keep it minor and limit themselves to some political horse trading. Christie blew it.

      Yes, Christie did blow it and I am glad he did. He is not who he claims to be; he is an anti-gun, climate change believing, amnesty supporting, liberal Republican who needs to be stopped.

    We can only hope this finishes him. Maybe we got at least one lucky break.

    Christie’s been watching to much Obama reruns.

      He has way too much in common with Obama for my liking!

        When they were sitting together knee to knee in AirForce 1 I’m sure macho 0 gave him some salient pointers – how to work the system & the ‘already conditioned’ “We the people …” = resources for the gainsayers.

        Yeah, I am sure they had quite an interesting conversation.

    As a NJ native I’d like to chime in. NJ is a sick state infected with its affinity for anything or anyone with a D next to its name; most recently Lautenberg, Menendez, Booker- he with the proper pigmentation which could propel him into the White House in the near future- and former US Senator and Governor of NJ, John Corzine. Corzine was so corrupt that the D’s aided in Christie’s defeating him in the 2009 NJ gubernatorial election. We on the right applauded Christie’s bluster and bravado while knowing he was a closet liberal socially if not fiscally. It seems in today’s political landscape our choices are bad and less bad. Whether in a state of 10 million people or a country of 330 million people Diogenes would have a rough time finding an honest man.

    And let’s not forget Jersey’s other US Senatorial hero and ex-NY Knicks basketball player, the architect of the 1986 Tax reform Bill which was tantamount to a steak through the heart of we taxpayers the honorable Bill Bradley. Yes kiddies we are indeed the garbage state rather than the garden state.

    oops- that’s a stake through the heart, who can afford a steak these days?

    Lord knows I’m NOT a Christie fan, but those who fall into this trap and cannot see this is just another LEFTIST conspiracy, against Republicans are closing the door to a possible ally. Again, Christie is the LAST person I want as a nominee for PRESIDENT, but let’s leave room for him to grow as a REAL conservative!


    • March 29, 2014 1:03 pm

      I agree that Christie could be a valuable ally, however that is all he should be. If he is the nominee I don’t think I will be able to bring myself to vote for him.
