Two former associates of Gov. Chris Christie do not have to hand over documents to a legislative committee investigating the traffic jam scandal engulfing the governor, a New Jersey judge ruled Wednesday.
Former Christie loyalists Bridget Kelly and Bill Stepien had been fighting subpoenas calling for them to turn over documents regarding the plot to create traffic jams in Fort Lee to retaliate against the towns Democratic mayor. The legislative panel asked for the courts help in getting the two to comply with the subpoenas.
Calling the decision one involving complicated and untested jurisdictional issues, Judge Mary Jacobson expressed reservations about using judicial power to compel the production of documents.

The discrepancy in the amount of coverage of this Christy story, when compared to amount of coverage of Democrat gun-runners, Democrat vote-fraudsters, Democrat public-funds embezzlers, Democrat fundraisers who lose billions of dollars worth of their customer's money, Democrat child molesters, Democrat insider-traders, Democrat land-scam beneficiaries, Democrat members of the Executive Branch who enforce the laws they agree with and decline to enforce the laws with which they don't agree and say so publically, Democrat ex-politicians who are appointed to important departments of the executive branch by Democrat Presidents and then lose billions and billions of taxpayer money for which they are responsible, etc., is simply incredible.

The attorney general needs to bring the matter before a grand jury. Then they can proceed with obtaining the documents.

Why not? El-Presidente’s people can. Oh, wait; forgot - he has an R behind his name. Probably a common mistake.
