NJ Dem: ‘Premature’ To Consider Impeaching Christie


New Jersey Assemblyman John Wisniewski (D), one of the legislators leading the investigation into the bridge scandal, on Sunday said it was “premature” for the legislature to consider impeaching New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) or asking for his resignation.

“Clearly we’re way ahead of that right now,” he said about impeachment, adding that the legislature’s committee is looking more at how to prevent future abuses at the Port Authority if the investigation uncovers any corruption.

Wisniewski also said it was too early to ask Christie to testify before the legislature’s investigative committee.

“We’re not there yet,” he said.”We don’t have any reason to do that.”
