I was doing research for a new post that I hope to write about Chris Christie and the Mastro Report, which exonerated the governor of New Jersey from any wrongdoing in the Bridgegate scandal, when I came upon the following post on Charlie Pierce’s Politics Blog at Esquire. The post is one in an ongoing series of stories about Christie written by Scott Raab. I thought my friends at Flowers for Socrates might be interested in reading it. I’m posting an excerpt from and a link to the article:
NOTE: Scott Raab is an Esquire writer at large and New Jersey resident who has covered the Port Authority for years.
Bad news for Chris Christie — and very good news for the citizens of New Jersey: Esquire has learned from sources close to the investigation that David Wildstein, the former Port Authority operative who helped plan and execute the Great Fort Lee Clusterfk, is now cooperating with Paul Fishman, the federal prosecutor investigating the soon-to-be-ex-governor and his minions for criminal conduct. Fishman has also increased the number of investigators at work on the case, and has begun presenting evidence and witnesses to a grand jury in Newark.
