Piers: Christie Bridge Controversy ‘Up There With’ Nixon and Watergate

Piers Morgan thinks the controversy surrounding Chris Christie and the lane closures on the George Washington Bridge have reached Nixonian proportions — and exceeded them. “When you actually think about this, it’s pretty well up there,” the CNN host said.

The comparison was met with groans from both panelists on both the right and left, but Morgan stuck to his theory. “The argument was that in terms of the actual crime, to actually shut down, effectively, traffic around the busiest bridge in America — putting all those people at risk, putting people expecting emergency services treatment at risk — that is pretty damn serious, so I didn’t think the analogy was as ridiculous as you all do,” he said.
