Judge Napolitano: Gov. Christie Could Face a Series of Federal and State Charges

FOX News reports:
The U.S. Attorney's Office is opening a preliminary inquiry into the scandal surrounding New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's administration.

In a press conference today Christie apologized, but maintained he had no knowledge of the actions of one of his top aides.

Emails showed Bridget Anne Kelly worked with a Port Authority official to shut down the two bridge lanes, causing massive gridlock in Fort Lee, New Jersey. The motivation was apparently a political vendetta over Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich's refusal to endorse Christie for re-election.

Christie announced that Kelly, his deputy chief of staff, has been fired.

Judge Andrew Napolitano, a former Superior Court judge in New Jersey, joined Shepard Smith Reporting this afternoon to provide his legal expertise on what it means that the feds are now getting involved.

He also analyzed what civil liability the state could face. According to reports, EMS teams took longer than usual to reach a 91-year-old woman who had gone into cardiac arrest. She later died at the hospital.
The Judge's conclusion:
Gov. Christie & staff could see federal & state criminal & civil charges as well as state ethics charges.


  1. It has been reported that the woman did NOT die.

  2. LMAO. You can bomb cities, invade nations, arm drug lords and murder thousands, but beware, you'll get in trouble if you shut down a bridge. The law is truly an ass.

  3. Committing crimes is practically a prerequisite for presidential candidates. Christie is merely warming up for his battle with Hillary.

    Blocking a bridge is mere child's play. He needs to engage is financial fraud or rub out an aide or two if he wants to match Clinton's impressive rap sheet.

  4. Just great!! This is all we need! A Chris Christie scandal. He'll be the next president for sure now.

  5. Good news for Chris Christie. No more failed lap band surgeries to mask the McUSDA addiction! He wanted to look presidential, but now that he's killing people, he's skipped to acting like it.

  6. I really don't know what to make if this scandal. I wish that Paul Krugman--I mean Jerry Wolfgang--would post his wisdom to clarify things for me. It's hard to know what to think without Jerry's guidance.

  7. "Gov. Christie & staff could see federal & state criminal & civil charges as well as state ethics charges."

    One could only hope. But i seriously doubt it.
