Remember “Bridgegate”? Charles “Fuckface”Johnson along with MSLSD spent hours and hours salivating over “getting” the other fat man, Governor Chris Christie and ruining his career. They felt for certain that a a smoking gun document would turn up proving that Governor Porkey knew and approved of the George Washington Bridge shut down. Guess what? After 9 months and countless thousands of dollars spent, investigators have found nothing, nada, zip. Tough shit Chunky!
After 9 Months, Federal Probe of GWB Closure Finds No Link to Christie, Federal Sources Say
The U.S. Justice Department investigation into New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s role in “Bridgegate” has thus far uncovered no information he either knew in advance or directed the closure of traffic lanes on the George Washington Bridge, federal officials tell NBC 4 New York.
The September 2013 closures — where several entrance lanes to the George Washington Bridge in Ft. Lee were shut down causing a traffic nightmare for commuters — has been the subject of several federal and state investigations.
Federal officials caution that the investigation begun nine months ago is ongoing and that no final determination has been made, but say that after nine months authorities have uncovered no information Christie either knew in advance or ordered the closure of traffic lanes.
“My experience with federal law enforcement is that once you reach critical mass if you don’t have it within nine months or so you’re not likely to ever get it,” former federal prosecutor Robert W. Ray said.
“That’s good news for him,” Miringoff said. “The bad news remains that politically as chief executive it looks like he was not in control of his administration at the time when this occurred. So that remains the downside for him. That doesn’t go away but this panel provides greater credibility barring any further revelations coming out.”
Assemblyman John Wisniewski said the state legislative committee’s investigation into the bridge lane closures is continuing.
When the final report is issued, Christie may still face complications from the scandal, said Lee Miringoff, Director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion.
According to one former federal prosecutor, who had no involvement in any of the probes into the bridge closure, investigations of this kind will often turn up a solid connection early in the inquiry.
“This is not a Chris Christie investigation,” he said in a statement. “It’s an investigation as to why this happened and who authorized it. As a consequence, this does not change our position.”
Gov. Chris Christie, whose office initially declined to comment, said of NBC 4 New York’s report in a radio interview with NJ 101.5’s Eric Scott Thursday evening, “I don’t want to overreact to it because I’m not surprised by it, and I’m hoping that you know, we can start to focus on things that are important to all the people in the state of New Jersey.”
Spokesmen for the U.S. Justice Department, the FBI and New Jersey U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman’s office all declined comment.
On 18 September 2009 Charles Johnson’s Little Green Footballs Thread-Bombed Hot Air To Expose Racism By Planting Racism.Posted: September 18, 2014
It’s been 5 years since Charles Johnson’s inebriated operative Killgore Trout blasted full bore into the internest with his infamous Midnight Run / astroturf / thread bomb heard ’round the blogosphere. Killgore Trout’s point was to illustrate that the owners of Hot Air don’t moderate comments while asleep, and therefore the moderators are Racists. Charles defended Killgore Trout’s blatant dishonesty and protected his racism, including the following comment:
“I hate niggers and space monkeys.”
No one on Hot Air that night agreed with Killgore’s racist comments, and when Charles Johnson found out about it the following day, he played his classic “Yes But” card. He didn’t approve, yet he did. Charles declared that Hot Air is racist because Killgore’s racist comments weren’t deleted within an arbitrary time-span dictated by Charles Johnson on a blog he didn’t own and doesn’t control.
Pure straw man argument.
