    Can Christie be impeached ?

    Today

    Explosive emails by Bridget Anne Kelly to Port Authority aide David Wildstein were made public by news organizations today and contradict previous assurances by Christie that his administration was not involved in the lane closures, and that they were not politically-motivated.

    Yeah uh huh ... you've got to go ..


    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie denied knowing about a scheme orchestrated by his administration to bully a local political rival, calling the reported actions of a top aide "unacceptable."

    http://firstread.nbcnews.com/_news/2...e-scandal?lite

    Christie said he was previously unaware of apparent actions taken by his deputy chief of staff to orchestrate the controversial closure of local access lanes to the congested George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee, N.J., in the midst of a re-election campaign.

    He vowed to hold members of his administration accountable.


    "What I've seen today for the first time is unacceptable" ... Christie said in a statement.

    "I am outraged and deeply saddened to learn that not only was I misled by a member of my staff, but this completely inappropriate and unsanctioned conduct was made without my knowledge."


    The action prompted massive traffic gridlock in the city on its first day of school.

    I don't. He's just another establishment politician. But, I have read the emails. There is no meat on the bone here.
    There will be no "bridgegate."

    assuming the standard is the same for the governor as it would be for the president, is that a high crime or misdemeanor?

    and it may be smarmy and unethical, but is it a crime? maybe if you had to get your kid to school in fort lee the first day of school, you'd think so, but while he should be smacked down (rhetorically speaking) and it should absolutely come up in any presidential campaign, i don't think it's impeachable.

    If that were the truth, Osambo would have been gone in November 2013 after his lies regarding ACA were exposed.
