N.J. assemblyman: Christie impeachment talk 'premature'

Washington (CNN) - The New Jersey assemblyman leading the state's legislative investigation in the “Bridgegate” affair said Sunday any talk of impeaching New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie or calling for his resignation is "premature."

"We don't have enough facts to even get to that conversation," Democratic Assemblyman John Wisniewski said.

Giuliani: Bridgegate a 'witch hunt'

Washington (CNN) - One prominent Republican who isn't concerned about the controversy over the George Washington Bridge scandal is Rudy Giuliani.

The former Republican presidential candidate and New York City mayor dismissed the forthcoming investigation into the flap as a "partisan witch hunt." Charges that the closing of lanes was politically motivated have enveloped New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's administration - and potentially his presidential ambitions.

Republicans divided on filibuster front

(CNN) - The Republican Party appears split over whether to block gun legislation in the Senate.

While more than a dozen GOP senators have stated they plan to block the proposed bill from proceeding, a number of Republicans are saying the public deserves to hear debate over the legislation. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has also vowed to oppose the bill as it now stands.

Poll: Voters back Bloomberg's push against plastic foam

(CNN) – While critics blast Mayor Michael Bloomberg's proposed ban on plastic foam containers as a major overreach, a new poll indicates that a strong majority of New Yorkers don't mind his so-called nanny state politics.

And though they approve of Bloomberg's latest restriction campaign, the poll also shows that New York City voters view Rudy Giuliani as the best mayor in the last 50 years of the Big Apple.

Giuliani: Obama dropped the ball on Sandy

(CNN) - Rudy Giuliani, a former New York City mayor, accused President Barack Obama in a Friday appearance on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" of putting his own campaign ahead of handling the fallout from Superstorm Sandy.

"If I were the president of the United States, I sure wouldn't be flitting around the Midwest and the West," Giuliani said. "My job would be making sure this thing was followed through to the very end. Maybe the first couple of days he was keeping his eye on the ball, but we got gas lines now that are a mile long. We got bodies still being discovered, and we got a president who is playing campaigner in chief."

Giuliani, O'Brien take part in fiery debate

(CNN) - Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani argued Monday on CNN that President Barack Obama should have known from "common sense" that the U.S. consulate in Libya was at risk prior to last month's deadly attacks in Benghazi.

When pressed further on his point, however, Giuliani engaged in a heated exchange with Soledad O'Brien, anchor of CNN's "Starting Point."

The 2008 Republican presidential candidate claimed the so-called "reset" strategy toward the region that was part of Obama's 2008 campaign has proven ineffective and dangerous.
