Open thread: Presser called to explain in detail how governor knew nothing

posted at 10:41 am on January 9, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

Obviously, yesterday’s Sgt. Schultz-like apology of “I knew nothing” didn’t tamp down the outrage over internal communications from Governor Chris Christie’s administration that strongly suggest that a bridge closure was political retribution. Now Christie will get plenty of opportunity to expand on what he, er, didn’t know, and when he didn’t know it:

Gov. Chris Christie has scheduled a news conference after emails and text messages revealed his administration may have closed lanes to the George Washington Bridge to exact political retribution.

The governor will answer questions at the Statehouse in Trenton at 11 a.m. Thursday.

Emails and text messages released Wednesday suggest Christie’s deputy chief of staff and a top Christie appointee on the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey engineered traffic jams in Fort Lee last September to punish the town’s mayor.

Two of three lanes connecting Fort Lee to the heavily traveled GWB were closed, causing crippling traffic jams in the town.

Last month, Christie stated unequivocally that his office had nothing to do with the closure, and that it wasn’t punitive.  The communications exposed over the last 24 hours makes it plain that his administration did initiate the closures, and then celebrated them, for political purposes. Yesterday’s apology (of sorts) didn’t include a list of people Christie had fired, even though his only two explanations for the December statement are either (a) he lied, or (b) his staff lied to him. If he wants to sell (b), then he’d better be prepared to announce a rolling head or two in today’s presser.

The local media aren’t likely to let this go, either. NJ.com has timelines, scorecards, and a separate section set up already for breathless updates on “Bridge-gate.” It may end up derailing Christie’s most important appointment, too:

Kevin O’Dowd, who served as Gov. Chris Christie’s chief of staff as so called ‘bridgegate’ unfolded last fall was nominated last month as the state’s new attorney general.  He is due to go before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday.

The problem for O’Dowd is that Deputy Chief of Staff Bridget Kelly, who was implicated today as part of the investigation into the flap, worked for him. To date none of the emails that have surfaced implicate O’Dowd, even as several other administration members have found themselves caught up in the controversy.

But Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Nicholas Scutari said late last night he doesn’t know what effect Kelly’s role in the growing scandal will have on O’Dowd, adding that he’ll wait to see what comes out of today’s Assembly Transportation Committee hearing before deciding what’s next.

“(O’Dowd’s hearing) is still scheduled but we need to see what if anything more comes out (today) because all nominees have to swear in and testify,” he said. “If it goes forward it certainly will be a lot longer and different than originally anticipated.”

No doubt. If Christie really did get blindsided by this, then the best option for him would be to clean house from top to bottom. Anything less, and people will start to wonder what his staff knows that’s keeping their jobs safe. We’ll see what happens at the presser. John Dickerson predicts heads will roll:

CBS News political director John Dickerson told the co-hosts of “CBS This Morning,” to expect some heads to roll within Christie’s administration. “I think you are likely to see probably firings. I think you’re likely going to see a buck stops here moment from him (Christie) — taking responsibility for this.”

A “buck stops here” moment? That should have come yesterday, really, but better late than never.

Update: I’m pretty sure this would be the wrong strategy to take, but it would be legendary:

The closest I’ve found. Must agree that it isn’t what I thought I’d remembered.

Al in St. Lou on January 9, 2014 at 5:07 PM

Thank you for your honesty.

I’m certainly far from perfect when it comes to picking winners in politics myself…cripes, I actually thought Charlie Crist had integrity shortly before he bailed out of the GOP. I ate hat for it. Needless to say, I don’t do political bets anymore.

I’d say Christie should have just shaken hands and kept a straight face. All the big smiles made it look like an endorsement.

Al in St. Lou on January 9, 2014 at 5:09 PM

Now, I fail to see how smiles = endorsement. Christie publicly endorsed Romney long before Sandy hit. Let’s please not do what the Left does…creating “facts” where they don’t exist.

He makes a great point still. Moderates and progressives throw Conservative Republicans under the bus for much less than what occurred in Christy’s administration. You dismiss the point with your running gags about these people, but it doesn’t change the truth.

Look, I don’t have any use for idiots in the establishment or the Tea Party. Just like I can’t stand any of the embarrassments that the Tea Partiers have endorsed, I can’t stand people like Crist, Murkowski, Lugar, McCain, and Graham of the establishment, either, who are embarrassments of a different type. My problem with someone of the people to whom I’m sure you’re referring was they way they handled it. Christie, whether you like it or not, helped himself by the way he handled everything today. Whether there’s something out there that might directly implicate him remains to be seen. There very well might, but until that happens, I give him props for the way he handled it.

GOPRanknFile on January 9, 2014 at 5:39 PM

GOPRanknFile on January 9, 2014 at 5:39 PM

I’m fine with the way he handled it. I was commenting on another thread to quit dog piling him and doing the Donks job for them. It’s a fact of life though that moderates and progressives in the GOP have thrown Conservatives they don’t like under the bus for far, far less. For a single interview. For a single public statement. You can’t escape the resentment some Conservatives are going to feel because of the way their candidates are treated. You yourself have been particularly hard on Conservatives.

Maybe time for everyone to look at the way they aid the other side in bringing down your own party members.

hawkdriver on January 9, 2014 at 5:53 PM

hawkdriver on January 9, 2014 at 5:53 PM

I don’t disagree with you about doing the Donks’ job for them. I do slightly disagree with you that they only do it to conservatives. They’ll do it anyone with an R next to their name. If a Republican stands in the way, they’ll do whatever it takes to destroy them. Like you alluded to, they did it with Palin and her interviews. They’re doing it with Rand Paul and the plagiarism allegations. They also did it with someone more moderate like Romney with his record at Bain…going so far as to accuse him of a woman’s death. They’re doing it with Christie now.

Did I have problems with certain TPers getting the nomination? Yes, not because of differences in philosophy, but because I thought they would embarrass our side, and every single one of them I thought would, did. I want more conservatives in office, but let’s nominate ones that don’t have the propensity to make idiotic statements. I’m all for getting more conservative than Cornyn in there, but someone like Stockman isn’t the guy to do it. I would love for McConnell to lose in a primary, but Bevin isn’t the guy to do it.

Let’s be frank. You oppose Conservatives who are socially conservative on issues. It’s in hundreds of your comments. It’s not only how they espouse their beliefs, it’s what they believe too. At the very least, if you have a right to bash a candidate or office holder because they sound preachy and religious, Christy is fair game for people’s perception of his heavy handed tactics and rhetoric. I’ll support him over any Donk but it’s a fact he went out of his way to boost obama’s image over Romney during the election. He’s weak on guns and he’s weak on immigration and social issues. But this traffic jam BS is a nothingburger to me. We do the DOnks and the media’s job helping them make a big deal out of it.

Again, let’s stick with all of our candidates and leaders. Or forgo your indignation when you guys get the same treatment other more progressive GOPers dish out.

I bash both conservatives and moderates when I think they deserve it. I’ve been very critical of McCain, Graham, McConnell. In fact, as recently as today, I was critical of Christie (before his press conference anyway).

Did you call for some party unity when they got nominated? Or did you bandwagon like you’re complaining about here?

Party unity. I just mentioned earlier how I actually urged my friends and family in DE to support O’Donnell on election day, even though I was very critical of her. You don’t even have to go that far back. I was very open about my opinion of Cuccinelli as a candidate. However, I still said that we have to do whatever we can to help him win. Am I surprised that he lost? No, he was an awful candidate for VA, but it doesn’t mean I wasn’t rooting for him.

Nothing could be further from the truth. I’ve always been socially conservative, although I will admit that I’ve become more libertarian on social issues in the past few years. I love candidates that can articulate their socially conservative positions in an eloquent manner. I could never support someone like Huckabee because he’s way too moderate for me on issues like immigration and taxes, but the way he defends his stances on social issues is impressive. I wish every social conservative could it that well. Two of my favorite Republicans are Pence and Jindal…both very strong social conservatives.

Rubio early on was an “embarrassment” too; we were told we should go with Crist who was more likely to win. Ditto pretty much with Paul against McConnell’s handpicked guy.

Not surprisingly, you’re wrong once again. You’re more than welcome to research if you would like, but I was with Rubio when he was polling in the single digits. This was even before George Will predicted Rubio would win, and everyone thought he was crazy. But I was impressed with Rubio and knew we could get someone much more conservative than Crist in Florida. I was also with Rand Paul from the very beginning. And you can read the threads, I was one of Cruz’s earliest supporters.

You can dismiss O’Donnell with your inane reference to her tongue in cheek witch commercial. You cannot dismiss the fact that Castle was a left leaning moderate who voted to refer Dennis Kucinich’s articles of impeachment for then president George W. Bush to the judiciary. During a time of war. During a time when I personally was deployed in said war. Conservative certainly had as much call to question his creds as O’Donnell.

I have yet to have anyone explain to me the parliamentary necessity of his vote.

That commercial was definitely not tongue-in-cheek.

I was no Castle guy, either. Between the two, I would have chosen Castle, not because I agreed with him more, because I certainly didn’t, but because it was Delaware and Christine O’Donnell isn’t the type of conservative that could win there. If someone like a Nikki Haley, Marco Rubio, or Rand Paul ran against Castle there, I would have supported him/her because they present conservatism in an intelligent manner. O’Donnell doesn’t. I just had a feeling that O’Donnell would say conservatism back there, whereas if someone like Haley, Rubio, or Rand ran, they very well might have lost in the general, but at least they wouldn’t have embarrassed the party or the conservative movement.

I could be wrong, but by forcing the motion to be considered by the committee, it prevented the House from having to debate about impeachment. Why didn’t everyone vote for it? I think there were two lines of thinking here. One side (where the majority of Republicans aligned), they voted against it, hoping that it would die on the floor, which would have handed Kucinish an immediate defeat, and it would have forced the Democrats to have to explain this whole thing publicly, which I’m sure most Democrats didn’t want to do. The other side (where the minority of Republicans voted) voted for it so it could be sent to the Judiciary Committee for consideration, where it would die a “slow death” as mentioned in the link, and would avoid having to debate about any of it on the House floor. That’s what I think, but, of course, I could be wrong.

This is a reasoned analysis of Christie’s situation. He’s damaged by this either way, the only real question is degree.
