"The U.S. attorney should now subpoena the documents that were referred to in the letter and should sit down and talk to the governor," the former Harvard Law School professor said in an exclusive interview.

(a) how is the the US Attorney's business?  So far this is nothing more than a local NJ state political matter to be resolved by NJ itself; and

(b) it seems pretty clear what the democrats'/Obama's plan of attack will be on any significant republican challenger to the anointing of Saint Hillary in 2016:  they're practicing on Christie, not the least because he's a very emotional target for some of their biggest supporters - the unions, and especially the public sector unions.

Get ready for this scam to be run against at least one or two other republican presidential potentials in the next year to year and a half.  Were I Jeb Bush, I'd make sure I had all of my ducks in a row right now because he's a likely next target given the noises being heard amongst some in the GOP leadership that he should be tapped if Christie fails.

Could it not be argued that the bridge disruption interfered with inter state commerce? That is a federal area.

Yes.

I have no doubt Christie and his team thought this was funny... No one's laughing now, though.

Yes.

Thanks. I thought so. Bit of a long shot, but you know the Feds. They don't like people on their turf, especially one with an R (however ill deserved) after their name.

Given the current climate here a loud fart could be argued to have interfered with interstate commerce!
