    However, this self appointed investigation is just as valid as the IRS investigation by Barbara Bosserman and the FBI. I guess this is the new normal.
    Whitewater was a $80 million INDEPENDENT investigation initiated by Republicans that found nothing on Clinton. What that has to do with Christie "investigating" himself is beyond me.

    Independent probes of Clinton Administration cost nearly $80 million - April 1, 1999

    So your point of the story is if accused crooks can clear themselves in D.C. then so can accused crooks at the state level?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    This is another example of you seeing what you want to see.

    Every leftist that I know of who knows about the CSM, loves it.

    The real issue here is what was told to the people. Obama and his admin rode that Internet Video meme and the 'Spontaneous Demonstration' meme as long as was humanly possible, even though they already knew from the CIA that it was a planned and coordinated terrorist attack.

    This misleading of the people may acceptable to some, and granted, as we have grown to know this president better, it becomes less and less of any sort of surprise. But I hardly think that it is acceptable, as do many others.

    Re-read the OP for my point. My last reply was simply stating if one side does it, why the outcry when the other follows?
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Surely just one important step showing the Gov didn't lie (unlike our many other prominent Washington politicians who have). The Christie haters will continue to hate, the Christie supporters will be rewarded for their steadfast support. The media will likely not say much since this denies a smoking gun and the demise of a rising star Republican. Whether or not Christie runs in 2016 probably hasn't changed - from a political standpoint the damage was done; mission accomplished.

    I'm not going to disagree with the findings, as they might very well be true. But this is a report commissioned by Christie, conducted by a law firm with close ties to the Christie administration, that asserts that there was no definite evidence that Christie knew; although it doesn't seek to answer if these sorts of things were condoned by Christie.

    Replace Christie with Obama and tell me that you'd accept a similar report.

    Not to go off topic, but the video played a huge role in the attack on Bengazi. There is this notion among far too many that it was a vast preplanned terrorist attack orchestrated by al Qaeda. But that has consistently been debunked by every single intelligence report.

    Bengazi was loosely coordinated attack by many disparate groups and individuals quickly planned under the cover and in support of protests in Egypt over a YouTube video. The facts are very similar to those presented by Susan Rice in the immediate aftermath of the attack. The only lies for political gain have been produced by Issa and the Republicans in an attempt to damage Hillary.
