Bridgegate: Christie’s Fmr Campaign Manager Said Governor Lied At Presser

{!hitembed ID=”hitembed_1″ width=”500″ height=”300″ align=”none” !}
And another shoe drops. Now it is Governor Chris Christie’s former campaign manager, Bill Stepien, who has claimed that Christie lied to the public at his December press conference when Christie claimed no one on his senior staff knew about the illegal lane closures on the George Washington Bridge.

Michael Drewniak previously testified that he had talked to the governor about statements made to him by David Wildstein that implicated Bridge Kelly, a Deputy Chief of Staff.

On Dec. 13, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) told the press that no one on his senior staff had prior knowledge of the plan to close access lanes to the George Washington Bridge in September. But a lawyer representing Christie’s former campaign manager Bill Stepien now says that was wrong

The claim was included in a letter sent in early April — and made public Wednesday — by attorney Kevin Marino. The letter was sent to Randy Mastro, the high-priced defense attorney who led the governor’s internal review of the scandal.

The issue is, if Christie lied about knowing about Bridgegate, is he lying about his role in it?

While there are multiple people contradicting Governor Christie’s statements on what he knew and when he knew it, we still do not know who in his office authorized the lane closures. If Bridget Kelly did not have the authority then who did and did Governor Christie know?
