Lawyer: 'Evidence' disputes Christie on bridge lane closures

(CNN) - A lawyer for David Wildstein, a former top appointee of Chris Christie, says there is evidence contradicting what the New Jersey governor has said publicly about the George Washington Bridge traffic lane closures that has roiled his administration.

Wildstein resigned his position at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey in December amid allegations that Christie appointees had ordered access lanes to the river crossing in Fort Lee closed to punish that town's mayor for not endorsing Christie for reelection.

    "Evidence exists ... tying Mr. Christie to having knowledge of the lane closures, during the period when the lanes were closed, contrary to what the governor stated publicly in a two-hour press conference (on January 9),

    Gov. Christie is losing that Luvin feeling !

    Time to bring out the pugilists. If they won't believe your story, threaten to beat the hell out of them. Seem to be the current fashion in the republican ranks these days.

    And I saw excerpts of his press conference, the guy was lying through his teeth. It seemed to me that he could barely contain his laughter that he was fooling so many people. I heard they are calling for his impeachment.
