NYT: Missing From Christie’s Proof-of-Innocence Claim: The Proof


Missing From Christie’s Proof-of-Innocence Claim: The Proof

As of Tuesday afternoon, Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey was refusing to make public the interviews that, his lawyer asserts, “vindicate” the governor in the traffic-jam-as-punishment scheme run by his aides.

Well, why not just show the goods?

The lawyer, Randy Mastro of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, released a statement Tuesday, saying, “The governor’s office is fully cooperating with the U.S. Attorney’s Office’s investigation, and in that regard, has not publicly released accounts of interviews conducted in connection with the Gibson Dunn investigation.”

Note, carefully, the phrase “in that regard.”

Christiegate: Lawyers Refuse to Turn Over Interview Notes



Christiegate: Internal Probe Lawyers Refuse to Turn Over Interview Notes

Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP attorney Randy Mastro yesterday declined a request by lawmakers to turn over notes taken during the interviews of over 70 witnesses that supported an internal report conclusion that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has no knowledge about the lane closures near the George Washington Bridge. Bloomberg said that the internal probe was ordered (by) no less than the New Jersey governor himself, and had allowed the firm to have access to his office and his phone call data to determine his involvement in the lane closings.

In a statement released through Christie's office, Mastro said, "The Governor's Office is fully cooperating with the US Attorney Office's investigation, and in that regard, has not publicly released accounts of interviews conducted in connection with the Gibson Dunn investigation. If the Joint Committee chooses to issue further subpoenas, the governor's office will review and respond to them at that time."

Assemblyman John Wisniewski, who is one of the two outspoken critics of the Gibson Dunn report, said that the Joint Committee will be issuing a subpoena for the release of the documents. Telling Bloomberg, he said Christie has done a full 360 regarding his initial promise on the 'Bridgegate' scandal.

Introducing Buddy, who came in from the cold, warmed up, went to the vet, and got a FIV diagnosis

At the moment he is asleep under my bed.. I'm posting to request your compassionate
thoughts across the miles for this buddy.

A few months ago he showed up at the window in the cold, looking as if starving. Bit by
bit I would feed him (outside). I thought he was entirely feral, being fully intact male
and very tough, beat up looking. Wouldn't come near me in the beginning. But he was so hungry.

So hungry, so plaintive. Gradually came closer, let himself be touched.
(He must have been with people once, as now we've discovered he is extremely affectionate,
wanting VERY much to be touched massaged petted scratched combed cuddled kissed and

The more we touched, the more I realized he needed some vet care but thinking he was
feral I didn't want to traumatize him or me. As it turned out he practically climbed into
the cat carrier himself. He has not once scratched, growled, snarled, bitten. Although a
full big Tom, he is humble gentle and respectful around the other cats.

So what do you do?
A bum cat shows up, hungry and poor. Filthy, ragged.
He has nobody, nothing.
His ear is half torn off and his face is scarred, ugly.
It's freezing outside.
We can barely afford to feed the cats we have now.
But but but
we are not the 1%.
it's hardly a choice.

Buddy more or less moves in, and we take him to the vet. He's actually in pretty good shape...
until.. except.. oops ... he has FIV.

FIV is like HIV for cats. Not curable as far as we know. Contagious, but not likely through casual
contact. Spread mostly through bites fights & sex. Undermines the immune system, generally
shortens the kitty's life. Doesn't have to. This is as much as I know so far. Like a friend who is
HIV positive. Needs care. Don't be scared. Love is everything, everything.

Here he's making a goofy face after finishing his bowl of green goo.
But but but but sigh one day at a time we will figure it out.

I remember you from the Zimmerman trial.. I just came looking for good old DU legalanalysises

and happy to find some familiar names in discussion.

They are on some sort of break at the moment,
the shooter has gone back to his seat.

I have tuned in late, astonished for some reason to
see Angela Corey and John Guy -- didn't realize
this was Florida.

Welcome any summation, analyses so far, or links.

will he walk?
he seems remarkably sympathetic but I have missed
most of the trial.
what's to come?

Zimmerman has a taker for his celebrity boxing match.


Acquitted killer George Zimmerman says he wants to take up boxing – and celebrity rapper The Game says he’s more than happy to be George Zimmerman’s first opponent.

TMZ reported that the Ali Bomaye rapper has accepted a challenge to box the infamous George Zimmerman in a celebrity boxing match being promoted by Damon Feldman. The fight is scheduled for March 1 and all proceeds go to charity. The Game is 240lbs and 6’5″ and heavily muscled. Zimmerman is 5’7″, and his weight has fluctuated from 185lbs. to 285lbs. by media accounts – most of it generally not muscle.

The Game said:

“I will beat the f**k out of him. I would not be boxing for me. I’d be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family. I would box him to knock him out and I would definitely take pleasure in it. It’s legal, and I want to show him you can solve your disputes without a weapon.”
