Christie Blasts New York Times and Wildstein

In a strongly-worded email to friends, titled “5 Things You Should Know about the Bombshell That’s Not a Bombshell,” the Office of N.J. Governor Chris Christie has fired back,  blaming the New York Times for reckless reporting and insisting as he has done all along, that he knew nothing about the lane closures in advance and even when he found out thought that it had been done simply for traffic purposes, as did everyone else, Politico reported.

The email began by mentioning how editors at the Times were forced to change their headline repeatedly to account for sloppy reporting.

The email proceeds to discredit Wildstein’s veracity, citing numerous instances in which his credibility was brought to question, including a quote by Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich, allegedly the target of the lane closures (to punish him for not supporting Christie’s reelection campaign), who noted that he and the town of Fort Lee have problems believing Wildstein, “who is bucking for immunity.”
