(CNN) - Federal prosecutors in New Jersey have subpoenaed documents from political groups linked to Gov.

    If this were Hillary Clinton you would be all for it. Oh, that's right, this is a scandal with actual evidence to start with, not a conclusion working itself backwards to a question.

    This should be good. Between Bridgeghazi and Hoboken, Christie must be crapping aliens left and right.

    He invited the Rottweiler up his poop chute, now he must live with it for the duration. That's what he get's for wanting to be King, and surrounding himself with minions that believe in the old adage of might makes right. They are wrong now, and always will be wrong.

    The DOJ goes after anyone white and Republican, while ignoring blacks and Democrats. The DOJ is a totally corrupt and racist department.
