Federal Subpoena for Christie

Gov Christie has acknowledged that his office has received a federal subpoena related to the bridge scandal:

Speaking for the first time since a former Port Authority official said that "evidence exists" to contradict the governor's blanket denials about his knowledge of the lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, the New Jersey governor waved off the suggestion that he wasn't being forthcoming.

"The most important issue is, did I know anything about the plan to close these lanes? Did I authorize it, did I know about it, did I approve it — did I have any knowledge about it beforehand?" he said during a regularly-scheduled appearance on an "Ask the Governor" segment on WKXW radio in New Jersey.  "And the answer is still the same: it's unequivocally no."

Christie later continued: "Here's the thing that I find so interesting, because what's going on now with all this other stuff is just a game of gotcha. When did I first learn about this or that, well, the fact of the matter is, I've been very clear about this. Before these lanes were closed, I knew nothing about it, I didn't plan it, I didn't authorize it, I didn't approve it. I knew nothing about it."

Nope. He's a pompous, arrogant, smug, bully. He absolutely knew about it. He's just trying to save face and hold on to his presidential hopes.
