NJ Democrats “Are Not Ruling Out” Impeachment Proceedings against Governor Christie

Asbury Park Press reports that senior Democratic state lawmakers are not ruling out the possibility of impeaching Republican Governor Chris Christie if evidence produced at the Bridgegate trial shows he was untruthful in describing his role in the 2013 lane closing episode.

The Star-Ledger (Newark) posts an op-ed by Brigid Callahan Harrison, a professor of political science and law at Montclair State University, who writes, “If the prosecution demonstrates [at trial that Governor Christie knew of the lane closings as they occurred], it marks an important legal milestone — and if evidence shows that Christie knew about the lane closures, the state legislature should consider charges of impeachment.”
