Washington Examiner's Ferrechio: More Christie Bombshells May Be Coming

Susan Ferrechio, chief congressional correspondent for The Washington Examiner, believes there may be more bombshells ready to explode in New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's bridge-gate scandal.

"Christie came out and delivered this epic press conference rebuttal … which, in itself, was a huge deal and he seems to have, for the moment, kept himself afloat," Ferrechio told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"Of course, all of this hinders on whether or not there will be more information coming out. We'll know soon whether the New Jersey papers are going to dig anything more up on him, but there may be another shoe to drop further down the road and not immediately.

"That's because, as you know, there's a federal investigation and if they want to prosecute someone, there could be a plea bargain down the road that yields unflattering information about Chris Christie."

Ferrechio believes the Garden State's top lawmaker remains a controversial figure within the GOP.

"He's not necessarily a polarizing figure within the GOP, certainly not. But there are people who feel he is not the ideal representative of the party and there are others who think he's their one shining hope for 2016," she said.

"So you're getting a variety of input about him from Republicans. Some people [are] … still angry at him over the 2012 election and the big hug fest with Obama … just weeks leading up to the elections.

"People feel like he had backtracked on his conservatism, embracing some aspects of immigration reform and gay marriage. So he's not made everyone happy."
