FBI Question Christie's Campaign Manager's Landlord

WNYC New York reports:
Nine days after the "time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee" emails were made public in January, the FBI called Bill Stepien, Gov. Chris Christie's former campaign manager.

Stepien had been a top political adviser to the governor—and his brand-new choice to be chairman of the state Republican party—but he was fired when the bridgegate emails were released.

Stepien declined to talk to the feds that day in January, according to a new court filing from his attorney, Kevin Marino. A few weeks later, though, the FBI visited Stepien's home in Princeton. Stepien wasn't home, so investigators "questioned his landlord about his conduct and character — was he married, was he a rowdy tenant, did he pay his rent on time — and left behind their calling cards, which prominently identified them as criminal investigators and left no doubt as to the nature of their investigation," according to the court filing.

The revelations about the FBI's involvement in the case is the most detailed account of how seriously investigators are looking into the matter.

  1. This goes nowhere Rw. Christie is a made man with the scumbags in the beltway. It appears the MSM has already been directed to stand down, if he was going to get taken out it would be relentless coverage. If I was a betting man I'd say he suffers zero serious blowback from the whole ordeal. His aid fell on the sword, obviously she's a team player with a golden parachute or somebody made a credible threat on he well being. Either way, sadly, this is going nowhere.
