Chris Christie again says: I knew nothing about lane closures

Washington (CNN) - Embattled New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Monday forcefully reiterated he knew nothing about lane closures at the George Washington Bridge last September before media reports appeared.

Christie, whose administration is under fire for suggestions top appointees orchestrated traffic jams at the foot of the bridge in Fort Lee to punish that town's mayor politically, said again that he "had nothing to do with this."

In a radio interview with New Jersey 101.5, Christie was asked to respond to a new allegation from a central figure in the scandal that "evidence exists" showing he was aware of the lane closings in real time over a work week last September, contradicting his recollection of events.

    As a NJ resident, I read and listen to a lot of the local news pieces that are ignored by the national press. If all that I read is true, he will not only get impeached, he will go to prison.
