As in all defense documents, the report turned up no evidence of any kind suggesting the slightest wrongdoing on the Governor's part, or even his indifference or negligence in allowing this brouhaha to develop without his being aware of it.
Even if federal and state legislative investigators are unable to prove that Christie gave the order for the bridge closures, or had advanced knowledge, he has no chance of becoming the Republican Party's nominee for president in 2016.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's million dollar internal investigation of Bridgegate has determined that the governor did not know what was going on and did not authorize the lane closures. But the report raises more questions than answers.
One thing's certain in the latest allegation against New Jersey Gov. Christie Christie: either Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer is blatantly lying through her partisan teeth or the Trenton Bully Brigade has struck again.
Chris Christie could never get elected president because it is simply a bridge too far for him. There was never a way he could outflank conservative Republicans to secure the nomination. They don't trust him, and now it appears he has given most Americans a good reason not to trust him as well.
Adding fuel to the fire is a new federal investigation announced Monday into allegations that Christie misused Hurricane Sandy relief funds to produce one or more re-election campaign ads. Hear that sound? That's the other shoe dropping.
What was most stunning about The Governor's prayerful pity party was that he spent two hours expressing incredulity and remorse because his staff and political henchmen and women lied to him. He was not chagrined that they lied to the people of New Jersey.
