  •  Well, they're arguing that (6+ / 0-)

    providing evidence to a legislative investigation (that is not criminal) will expose them to a separate investigation, one that is a criminal one with the power to bring charges—if the US Attorney's investigation subpoenaed them, they wouldn't be making this argument. They're playing with a pretend loophole in legal precedent that allows for withholding documents in very specific circumstances in order, I think, to stall for time.

    They know it's not going to work. They just want to play as hard as they can until the price to be paid by jumping ship and seeking immunity or coming clean is less severe than the price to be paid for hanging tough with Christie. The breaking point is coming soon, and I expect we'll find the governor hiding out in a hole somewhere with a month's growth of beard.
