Chris Christie: Citizens Bank Park Is 'Not Safe For Civilized People'

  • Will Chris Christie Become Trump’s Drug Czar

Christie added "Ya gotta believe we're very bad people!" In a statement released after the ruling, the governor's office said this is "a complete non-event". But the New Jersey governor was pushed out of his role as Trump transition team head shortly after the election, and he was passed over for the job of attorney general.

But Bergen County prosecutors announced last month that they would not prosecute Christie on the complaint brought by Brennan, and it appeared the case was dead.

Christie would need to be indicted by a grand jury in order to go to trial.

Thursday's development comes as Christie, whose approval ratings have sunk below 20 percent in recent months, has gained traction with the passage of anti-opioid legislation, a cause he has championed.

Christie, an early and effective surrogate for Trump during the election race, was previously passed up for vice president and was also replaced by VP Mike Pence to head up the White House transition team.

Massive fire hits club at Yonge and St. Clair
Firefighters were ordered out of the building, so fire crews had to tackle the blaze from the balconies of neighbouring buildings. According to Pegg, when the building goes down, it will produce a large volume of visible flame that firefighters have to manage.

It is unclear how quickly - or even whether - the case will move forward. He says the failure of the Bergen County prosecutor's office to pursue charges shows favoritism on behalf of the prosecutor's office.

"I have absolutely no intention, nor any understanding, that I will be asked to be in the administration in the years to come", Christie told CNN's Jake Tapper Sunday on "State of the Union".

"The Phillies suck", Christie said. "The judge is violating the law, pure and simple".

Last fall, former aide Bridget Kelly testified that Christie knew about the planned lane closures on the GW Bridge when they were first proposed and that he once threw a water bottle at her in anger. Christie is a Mets fan.

Christie has denied knowledge of the scheme while it was ongoing.

He also quoted from former bridge authority official David Wildstein, who testified Christie laughed and made a joke about the traffic jams and Sokolich's calls not being returned when told about it at a September 11 memorial ceremony, while the lane closures were in progress.
