there was no traffic study and in fact it was a coaching job by mr. kwon of mr. baroni. and that's what they're looking at in terms of these subpoenas. that's what they're going after. >> well, you know, the cover-up is always worse than whatever it is they're trying to cover up. that's definitely what they think. that's why they're going for this. the other thing is when bill baroni testified, he really irked a lot of people. people thought he was playing a game with them. now they got the subpoena power. >> why does governor christie keep saying, at least as late as he has talked about it that there may have been a traffic stop that turned into a political punishment job, or there might have been a political punishment job that turned into a traffic study. give me a surmise. why would he keep backing up. >> beats the heck out of me. we were surprised when he said it could have been a traffic study. the port authority already said there is no traffic study. we can't figure out why he went back. although he has been off his game lately. he also said he didn't know anythi
mr. greenwald, thank you, sir for joining us. we haven't had you on before. i want to know what you thought of that performance by the governor in the context of what has happened and what we know so far. >> well, i think the governor's performance today was a little stale, to be honest with you, compared to what we're used to seeing, some of the bombastic comments and bravado that he has brought to the state of the states in previous years. but i think in the introit was very well said. bridgegate defines him. it doesn't define us as a state. it defines him and his actions. and while he did not focus much on it today, and i actually think that was appropriate, because we have to get to the business of the state, the truth of the matter is the governor keeps apologizing to the people for his staff betraying him. it's time for the governor to apologize to the people of the state of new jersey and the inconvenience that his leadership and the culture that he created caused the people of ft.
