"As the Governor said in a December 13th press conference, he only first learned lanes were closed when it was reported by the press and as he said in his January 9th press conference, had no indication that this was anything other than a traffic study until he read otherwise the morning of January 8th.

Paul Begala, a former adviser to President Clinton and host of CNN's Crossfire who now teaches at the University of Georgia School of Law, tweeted: "I'm no expert on politics or scandal or the press, but this seems like a bad story for Chris Christie."
The next day, Christie held a two hour press conference during which he said he had no prior knowledge of the incident. He also announced he had fired Kelly.
barely knew David Wildstein. That was untrue. He said he hadn't seen Mr. Wildstein in a long time. That was untrue. He's repeatedly said that he had no knowledge of the lane closures. Today's revelations raise serious questions about whether that is true," Elleithee said.
Christie knew about lane closures on bridge
When the e mails surfaced on Jan. 8, Christie's office released a prepared statement in which the governor indicated he didn't know about his staff's involvement until that day.

Wildstein has been central in the probe into the lane closings, which occurred in September and snarled traffic in Fort Lee for hours over a period of four days.
