The Jaffe Briefing - May 12, 2017

TRENTON - So, here's the way Gov. Chris Christie is sidestepping the state Legislature to fund a $300 million (or much more) renovation of the Statehouse: Use an unelected, obscure body known as the "State Capitol Joint Management Commission" to lease the Statehouse to the state Economic Development Authority (EDA) for $1.

President Trump is looking for a replacement who can restore “public trust and confidence” in the FBI. NJ 101.5 reports the governor’s name has “appeared on several lists of possible choices.” Christie is perfect for the job, as envisioned by Trump. He is blindingly loyal, secretive and brash. Finally, he gets our vote.
