The New York times has just come out with an explosive report that could really change things in the investigation into the George Washington Bridge scandal and if Governor Chris Christie had actual knowledge:
In 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.
“Mr. Wildstein contests the accuracy of various statements that the governor made about him and he can prove the inaccuracy of some,” the letter added.
Wildstein is the man who famously kept pleading the fifth during state legislative hearings, just moments after Christie threw him under the bus in his now infamous two hour press conference. It was then reported that Wildstein was looking for some form of immunity in exchange for testimony. Now it looks like they have upped the ante by offering what can only be described as a smoking gun.
The next few days should be really interesting now and I’m sure Christie is really starting to worry.
