Top New Jersey legislators have moved from discussing potential impeachment to researching how to impeach Republican Gov. Chris Christie.
Key members of the New Jersey Assembly have begun researching whether or not to bring articles of impeachment against Gov. Chris Christie, NBC 4 New York has learned.
One committee chairman who did not want to be named said “clearly obstruction of justice” would be an obvious charge against the governor.
The legislator told NBC 4 New York the chances are probably 50-50 that the assembly would pursue impeachment.
It seems like the odds should be higher than 50/50 given that both the prosecution and defense in the current Bridgegate trial agree that Christie knew about the lane closures as they were happening.
Christie lied to the people of his state when he claimed that he knew nothing about the closures. Gov. Christie was an active participant in a crime that jeopardized the lives of citizens, and he obstructed justice. All of this had come before he wasted millions of taxpayer dollars on bogus investigated where he cleared himself of any wrongdoing.
Chris Christie’s political career died with the Bridgegate scandal, but for the good of the people of the state, Christie must be impeached and removed from office as soon as possible.
