Chris Christie On Short List For AG….Loyalty Does Not “Trump” Lack Of Trust, Honesty, Integrity And Obstruction Of Justice

On this Veterans Day it is not only appropriate to honor our veterans, but to demand questions be answered.

President Donald Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions and replaced him with Sessions’ chief of staff, Matthew G. Whitaker, Trump announced by tweet Wednesday. However, it is reported that Sessions “submitted his resignation Wednesday.” What to believe?

President Trump gets rid of Sessions and considers replacing with Chis Christie…Why? So Christie can “save his own butt?” There’s a complaint on Christie being covered up by Jeff Sessions at the DOJ. President Trump’s consideration of Chris Christie is a huge mistake. Say it isn’t so….He would be just another “stump” for President Trump…as in “root of the problem.” (Now former Governor) Chis Christie has much to answer for….his cover ups and Obstructions of Justice as N.J. USAG and as Governor. His unresponsiveness as an elected official and his cover ups, including a fraudulent Certificate of Death of a veteran in his Department of Bureau of Vital Statistics.

If Veterans are a priority with President Trump, why is this untimely, suspicious and unattended death of a veteran of no concern to him or the DOJ?

Since (now former) AG Sessions has covered for FBI Robert Mueller (complaint sent to him) and Chris Christie, why would President Trump consider Christie for Attorney General?

Should President Trump nominate Chris Christie for position as Attorney General, letters of opposition must be sent to members of Congress. Loyalty does not “trump” Obstruction of Justice. Since Christie could not uphold the law as USAG and Governor, do you expect that he would do so as US Attorney General?

New Jersey “Bridgegate” Trial


Is There More Behind New Hampshire Corruption?

There Is More Behind Governor Chris Christie And The Bridgegate Scandal!

During the tenure of N.H. Gov. John Lynch (D) and Kelly Ayotte’s (R) tenure as Attorney General, Kelly Ayotte and Lynch covered up official corruption. The corruption and cover up extended to New Jersey, involving Fort Lee and Bergen County Prosecutors office. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) is fully aware, as is the Office of Inspector General, US DOJ.

N.J. Governor Chris Christie’s Chief Of Staff, Kevin O’Dowd, Stepping Down

“Gov. Chris Christie’s chief of staff, Kevin O’Dowd, whose nomination to be state attorney general was put on hold because of the George Washington Bridge controversy, is planning to leave the administration later this month to assume a top executive position at Cooper University Hospital, officials announced today.

O’Dowd began serving as Christie’s chief of staff in January 2012. Previously, he served as deputy chief counsel to Christie, beginning in 2010.
(reply from Governor Christie…no reply from A.G. Paula Dow! Stuart Rabner, former N.J. A.G. (during the tenure of Gov.Jon Corzine), currently sits on the N.J. Supreme Court. As attorneys general climb the political ladder, corruption remains under the rug. Same pattern with the state of Maine.)

Christie announced nearly a year ago that he intended to nominate O’Dowd to be the state’s next attorney general. However, the George Washington Bridge lane closure controversy that rocked his administration put the brakes on the appointment.

O’Dowd, a former federal prosecutor, had previously worked for Christie at the Office of the U.S. Attorney. He is married to Mary O’Dowd, the commissioner of the state’s Department of Health.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie In Hot Water…

…abuse of power and cover up extends beyond “Bridgegate”.  Gov. Christie in response to complaint regarding cover up by N.J. Attorney General’s Office relative to Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office.  A.G. Paula Dow failed to respond to Gov. Christie’s directive. Read more HERE.

Chris Christie’s role in GWB bridge scandal questioned in wake of newly revealed e-mails. The e-mails sent shock waves through New Jersey’s political establishment and raised questions about how high up in the administration the bridge lane shutdown operation may have gone. Christie, in his statement, said he had no knowledge of what had transpired.”

The e-mails suggest that Christie operatives jammed traffic in Fort Lee (Bergen County) to retaliate against Mark Sokolich, the city’s mayor, who did not endorse Christie’s 2013 re­election.”

“What I’ve seen today for the first time is unacceptable,” he said. “I am outraged and deeply saddened to learn that not only was I misled by a member of my staff, but this completely inappropriate and unsanctioned conduct was made without my knowledge. One thing is clear: this type of behavior is unacceptable and I will not tolerate it because the people of New Jersey deserve better.”

“The governor said the behavior “is not representative of me or my administration in any way and people will be held responsible for their actions.” Democrats in New Jersey on Wednesday were calling for a criminal investigation into the whole affair.”

Gov. Chris Christie apologized Thursday for a scandal that threatens his political future, announcing that he had fired a senior aide and banished his top campaign adviser for their roles in days of traffic jams orchestrated to punish a small-city Democratic mayor.”

“Christie at once accepted responsibility as the state’s chief executive but also insisted he had no involvement in shutting down a pair of access lanes to the heavily trafficked George Washington Bridge over four days in early September. The Republican governor said he was “blindsided” by this week’s release of e-mails and text messages detailing his office’s role in the plot to create severe gridlock in Fort Lee, N.J.”

“This is the exception — it is not the rule — of what’s happened over the last four years in this administration,” Christie said. He added that he was “stunned by the abject stupidity that was shown here.”

“Christie repeatedly invoked his ignorance of key events, providing a stark contrast to his carefully cultivated image as a hands-on, can-do chief executive.”

“I am embarrassed and humiliated by the conduct of some of the people on my team,” Christie said. “There’s no doubt in my mind that the conduct that they exhibited is completely unacceptable and showed a lack of respect for the appropriate role of government. “I’ve worked for the last 12 years in public life developing a reputation for honesty and directness.”

Mere days after it was uncovered that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s staff closed traffic lanes in the town nearest the GW Bridge, he is under investigation from the federal government for misuse of Hurricane Sandy relief funds.

Matt Mowers, executive director of the New Hampshire Republican Party, is  identified as a player in the prologue to the “Bridgegate” scandal plaguing his old boss, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Mowers was the regional political director of Christie’s reelection campaign. He had previously served in Christie’s governor’s office as a regional director of intergovernmental relations and legislative affairs. In both roles, Fort Lee was part of the Bergen County region he covered.  Christie won reelection, Mowers was named as the top staffer of the New Hampshire GOP.

Both houses of the N.J. state Legislature announced they will create a special investigatory committees to continue investigating the George Washington Bridge lane closures. Incoming state Assembly speaker Vincent Prieto (D-Hudson) called the George Washington Bridge lane closures “an abuse of power.” “This has become more than a transportation issue,” Prieto said. “An abuse of power like this is not something we’re going to stand for.”

“U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone  asked the inspector general of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to look into the “Stronger than the Storm” advertising campaign because he thought it “smelled.” The campaign featured television commercials featuring Christie and his family talking about the state’s recovery from the hurricane.”

Gov. Christie on Tuesday vowed in his State of the State speech “to take steps to ensure the “breach of trust” that led to the turbulent political scandal rocking his office will not happen again. Mistakes were clearly made. And as a result, we let down the people we are entrusted to serve. I know our citizens deserve better. Much better.”  I’m the governor and I am ultimately responsible for all that happens on my watch — both good and bad,” said Christie.

New Jersey Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto announced this afternoon the names of 12 lawmakers who will sit on a new, high-profile committee looking into the George Washington Bridge scandal. The goal of the committee is to get answers to the questions that we have and continue on what the Assembly committee has already started, Prieto said, noting the focus will be in large part on public safety. We’ve got more questions than answers we’ve gotten.”

“The committee, set to be authorized Thursday, will have the assistance of a former federal prosecutor who led the case against former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich.”

Christie announced today the hiring of the Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher law firm and specifically Randy Mastro to assist both with the review and an investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s office into the closings, which snarled traffic for four days in Fort Lee. Mastro, a former assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York, specialized in organized crime and racketeering cases.

Updated – March 14, 2016

E-mail to Governor Christie dated January 8, 2016, click here.

Still no response from Governor Christie.


The Star Ledger reports “N.J. Attorney General Paula Dow leaves office after nearly 2 stressful, sometimes frustrating, years.”

“Still, rumors of her departure swirled for months, and it was no secret that she wanted to be a judge. In December, Gov. Chris Christie granted her wish, choosing her for the Superior Court in Essex County. But her place on the bench will have to wait until the governor and the county’s Democratic senators agree on her and other nominations.”

On March 14, 2010 I wrote to Governor Christopher Christie, with attached documentation, requesting his assistance and intervention. Due to government  employees non-compliance with the law, I called upon him to cause an investigation into a most egregious travesty of justice and violations of oaths of office, breach of responsibility and statutory protocol, Obstruction of Justice, malfeasance of office and abuse of power.

“Pursuant to N.J. Constitution, Art. V, Sec. IV(5), The Governor may cause an investigation to be made of the conduct in office of any officer or employee who receives his compensation from the State of New Jersey, except a member, officer or employee of the Legislature or an officer elected by the Senate and General Assembly in joint meeting, or a judicial officer. He may require such officers or employees to submit to him a written statement or statements, under oath, of such information as he may call for relating to the conduct of their respective offices or employments. After notice, the service of charges and an opportunity to be heard at public hearing the Governor may remove any such officer or employee for cause. Such officer or employee shall have the right of judicial review, on both the law and the facts, in such manner as shall be provided by law.”

On March 29, 2010 I received a reply from Governor Christie stating that he asked Attorney General Paula Dow to review the information I sent to him and reply to me directly. Attorney General Dow did not reply to me and has failed to respond to Governor Christie’s directive. Contact information was given to the A.G.’s office for a Private Investigator from New Hampshire who went to New Jersey in May 2009 for further investigation into the matter and he was never contacted. This Private Investigator is well respected in New Hampshire and his investigation revealed gross violations of N.J. Statutes including contributory negligence which meet the requirements of culpability N.J.S.A. 2C:2-2; 26:6.

Governor Christie was made aware of the fact that A.G. Paula Dow had failed to respond to his directive. I have had no response from Governor Christie as of yet.

How does Paula Dow justify a judgeship when she has failed in her duties, oath and public trust as New Jersey’s top law enforcement officer?

How can Governor Christie justify his nomination of Paula Dow where she lacks integrity and public trust?
