Christie has to cut himself loose from the sinking ships of these five, or be dragged under with them. He's already "disassociated" himself from Kelley and Stepian. Most importantly, he also has to create a plausible scenario in which he was completely ignorant of the actions that are prosecutable. Legally, it doesn't matter if Christie was the originator of the idea, or even had knowledge of it beforehand. If, at any time before 8:50 yesterday morning, Chris Christie had any knowledge of the cause of this event, or the subsequent cover-up that his office arranged, he is guilty of felony conspiracy on many charges. If he did not come forward to proper authorities as soon as he learned of this behavior, he is guilty of misprision of a felony. Conviction on any one of these charges in a court of law would mean criminal sanctions. He would lose his license to practice law. Any of these are also impeachable offenses.

Christie is familiar with some of the applicable laws in this case because he prosecuted so many New Jersey politicians under them. His targets ranged from school board members to Sharpe James, the Newark Mayor of decades' standing. Christie ran for Governor in 2009 on the basis of his prosecutorial success - 130 convictions, zero acquittals - almost all of them Democrats. He got convictions for most of them on the basis of the statute against "official misconduct" in the New Jersey Code of Criminal Justice regarding "obstruction of a government function", the New Jersey Official Misconduct Law.

Boom. From The Daily News:

Later Thursday, news emerged that the FBI had joined the growing list of government bodies, which also includes the U.S. attorney's office and a New Jersey state transportation committee, that are investigating the matter.
...

The Port Authority and the New Jersey state legislature are also probing the traffic nightmare, which raised questions about Christie's reputation for political payback and his White House hopes for 2016.

A class action lawsuit was also filed Thursday in Newark Federal Court against Christie and the state, with six Fort Lee residents charging they were “deprived of life, liberty and property” by the shutdown.

Also today, Rachel Maddow released, via twitter, a letter that the Office of Emergency Medical services sent to the mayor of Fort Lee during the lane-shutdown:

It is heartbreaking.

Mr. Christie, a Republican, complained in a private phone call to Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, that Patrick Foye, the executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, was pressing too hard to get to the bottom of why the number of toll lanes onto the bridge from Fort Lee, N.J. was cut from three to one in early September, according to this person. The lane closures occurred without notice to local authorities, officials have said, and snarled traffic for a week in the small borough on the Hudson River bluffs.

According to the WSJ story, that phone call was the week of December 12.
Yeah. Kind of makes Christies little press "performance piece" this morning look like the firehose of lies that it actually was.

Among the mounting stream of evidence that shows Christie knew damn well what was going on, this one would seem to be the final nail in the coffin.

And it's very easily proven ... if Governor Cuomo has the backbone to be a proper partisan and put his boot on Christie's neck.

He doesn't have to do it personally. Heck, the WSJ would be HAPPY to report the facts if they just got the nod ... they're the ones with the connections to "a person familiar with the matter," which by the sound of it has to be someone in Cuomo's office anyway.

Ball is in your court, Andy. End Christie's political career.

Limbaugh Says GOP Are Like A Bunch Of Wildebeests For Not Coming To Christies Defense

Yep, he pretty much called Republicans a bunch of cowards that run away frightened when one of their own is attacked. Now, he did make sure to mention RINOs and establishment Republicans. Basically, in Rushs mind, the only true Republicans are crazy Tea Party ones, or ones that kiss the ring of King Limbaugh. Anyone that may have had a reasonable thought once or stated that Limbaugh was not the all and powerful voice of the GOP is, of course, a RINO.

After calling out Republicans for not rallying around Christie, El Rushbo was somehow able to blame Christies whole troubling saga on Obama. Of course, that is a Limbaugh specialty. Always find a way to mention and blame Obama for anything and everything. In a display of sheer and utter lunacy, Limbaugh pivoted Christies Bridgegate into Chicago politics, the IRS scandal, Obamas foreign policy, Obamacare and the government shutdown. He tried to equate parks and museums being closed during the government shutdown to Bridgegate. Basically, he blamed Obama for the government shutdown and saying that he closed national parks and landmarks as political retribution, but on a much larger scale than Christie.

Typically, Limbaugh doesnt make much sense, as he generally rambles on for a few hours looking for new ways to demonize liberals, women, minorities, Democrats and the President. But, on Thursday, he seemed even more incoherent than normal. It is still amazing to me that he has the most popular radio show in the nation. Even for the most ardent racist or woman-hater, what is the appeal of listening to Rush stammer and spit into his microphone for hours on end trying to reach a semi-coherent thought?

so you baggers must love Christie. your pied piper just said so.

funny watching folks who are full of themselves proving why no one pays attention to them. it's like they think everyone watches FOX when in actuality only 2.6 percent of the voting public seem to be stupid enough to watch it. and then carol has to make excuses for why no one pays attention to FOX bs. all i've gotten from it so far is that the MSM is kicking FOX ass in the messaging department.
they seem persistent fools..

Reading some each day then looking at their trolls.

"The BLS calculates unemployment rates by surveying people over the age of 16 who arent in the military, in prison or in mental hospitals. They are asked whether they are currently working and, if not, whether they have searched for a job in the last four weeks. Those who have stopped looking for work whether because they have retired or because they have given up hope of finding a job are considered outside the labor force. "
