New Jersey Governor Chris Christie made big news last week by releasing a report which appeared to exonerate the husky RINO of wrong doing in the Bridge Gate kerfuffel.
Trouble is, the report was prepared by a private law firm hired by Christie; thus, rendering the results essentially worthless, except in the mind and soul of the desperate governor whom is struggling to remain viable among potential GOP candidates for the presidency in 2016.
Christie’s long-shot prospects were not helped in the least by the federal government, mostly still the exclusive province of Barack Obama and deeply-partisan liberals, all of whom would savor the opportunity to send Christie across the Washington Bridge en route to federal prison, just in time for the November, 2016 election.
Even though Hillary Clinton may not be the donkey of choice for some liberals, she is still far and away preferable to Christie whose brand is irreconcilably tainted by the detestable R next to his name.
Thus, the federal government has targeted Chris Christie for a fate worse than water-boarding, as reported at the reference:
A federal grand jury is investigating NJ Governor Chris Christie’s involvement in the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal and heard hours of testimony Friday from Christie press secretary Mike Drewniak.
The US Attorney in New Jersey is taking the investigation extremely seriously, and recently increased the number of investigators on the case from three to 10, sources told the Post.
Drewniak’s lawyer, Anthony Iacullo, said the aide wasn’t a target of the investigation.
“We’re here to answer questions and that’s what Michael did today,” Iacullo told ABC.
The convening of a grand jury means the “Bridgegate” probe has progressed from a preliminary inquiry into the criminal phase of the investigation.
Ex-Christie aides allegedly ordered the shutdown of two traffic lanes near the bridge last year, causing gridlock in the nearby town of Fort Lee, to retaliate against the Democratic mayor who didn’t endorse Christie in his re-election bid.
Christie’s office is also being probed by a state legislative panel.”
Many conservative Republicans regard Christie, and his moderate-to-left views, as dangerous for America and would prefer to see the Governor fighting government indictments rather than doing battle with conservative candidates for the 2016 nomination.
For such folks, the glad word to the federal grand jury is, “Happy Hunting!”
