A handful of GOP officials offered their support for the New Jersey chief Sunday, but Giuliani said the scandal-stricken governor is putting his entire legacy on the line by saying he wasn’t personally involved in the crippling lane closures on the George Washington Bridge.
Embattled New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie can kiss his career — and his White House dreams — goodbye if he is lying about not being personally involved in the burgeoning Bridgegate scandal, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Sunday.
“He’s held a press conference; he’s flatly denied it,” Giuliani said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” of Christie’s assertion he didn’t know at least two of his top confidantes had conspired to wreak havoc on the George Washington Bridge.
“If for some reason [Christie’s denial] is not true, the man has put his political career completely at risk,” Giuliani added. “If it turns out there’s some evidence that he knew about it, he’s taken a complete risk and his political career is over.
