Question about the Chris CHristie Scandal

Do we know how the information leaked out about this whole thing? Was NSA surveillance involved? After all, they found both emails and text messages. Was any explanation given about this?

The suspect list the MSM will investigate in descending order.

1. Bush
3. Global Warming
4. Elvis
5. NSA

If I had a gun

to my head and was forced to choose Christie or Hilary, I would just tell you to shoot.


"Do we know how the information leaked out about this whole thing?

Maybe one of the thousands of people caught in the massive traffic jams leaked it to the Lamestream Media, who jumped all over it since Christie is a RINO.

Freedom is my Worship Word!

People stuck in traffic got access to text messages?



The New Jersey legislature has been investigating the closure since October. They subpoenaed emails and other information from David Wildstein and he complied. That is how all of this hit the national spotlight.


as Bernie Sanders recently asked the NSA whether it spies on congress. They said they treat members of congress no different than anyone else. That's got to apply to governors, too.

It Would Be Perfect Irony If NSA Spying Were To Bring Him Down

given his vigorous defense of their practices.

Funny you should post such questions...

as I have no idea what you're talking about.

"Do we know how the information leaked out about this whole thing?"
-What whole thing?

"Was NSA surveillance involved?"
-in what?

"Was any explanation given about this?"
-certainly not here!

Please fill in the background. I've been somewhat removed from mainstream news for a week or two while engaging heavy family oriented activity. I bet I'm not alone in that. I came back to blog world at the DP to find two extremely popular posts with references to Rand Paul making sly reference to Christie and traffic jams. The two posts make no reference to what Christie said or did to make Rand's comment so sly or funny. Another post here shows Greenwald referencing scary notions of Christie and the NSA. What did I miss?

do you really need someone to elaborate?

Iv been gone my self from these political songs the MSM love to sing. But it only took a simple search engine to find out what the fuss is all about.

define "need"

Sure, I did a brief search yesterday. It didn't turn up anything seemingly relevant. Did I need to do that? Perhaps I don't need to know anything about the "Christie scandal" and therefore don't need anyone to elaborate for me. I find I'm quite happy to know little or nothing of what goes on with Governors of States in which I don't live, but hearing of such topics here in DP discussions is another matter. Topics then potentially transform into that which might interest me. It often starts with others posting their interest. Perhaps I've grown spoiled. I've grown used to members here providing at least a bit of background information relating to topics of interest posted, not just in OPs, but also in comments. For example, you exerted the effort to reply to my comment of inquiry, as if you were interested in passing what you found interesting onto me. So far you've shared a modicum of affinity, and for that I am grateful, but it's like we are hunting partners and you shot a nice buck. I missed. At dinner, instead of even tossing me your gristly scraps, you tell me to try harder, to shoot straighter. Well... thanks for the tip. That is a good suggestion. <3

Passing The Buck

Your take on the this made me smile. My knowledge on the topic is co extensive with that which you summed up. I too depend upon the straight shooters here at DP so I don't have to venture too deep into MSM discerning forest for the trees. ;-)

The buck stopped here

The buck stopped here long enough for me to better engage freespeech468's technique. Of course I had greater success with some hollow points given to me by kevink. Adding the term "scandal" took me aiming straight to the heart of the matter. Bagged a good link, fed me what I needed, it is quite tasty and interesting, plenty to share, I'm happy to pass it on. :)

Thank You For Hunting That Up ...

... And driving it my way.

Picking through the entrails of putrid MSM can bog one down. On this, too, we might agree:
