In response to confirmation that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie did intentionally cause the traffic snafu known infamously known as “Bridgegate” back in 2013, the loud-mouthed governor may find himself relieved of his duties as officials consider impeachment.

Christie has spent far more time running for president and then spinelessly lying on behalf of Donald Trump than he ever spent actually giving a damn about his own constituents. Now, that lack of loyalty to his state is beginning to take hold.

The New Jersey Assembly, who are handing the case over Bridgegate, are reportedly looking into the proper next steps now that Christie’s testimony has revealed that he was well-aware of the incident at the time.

The committee is looking into several actions at this point, including charging Christie with obstruction of justice. An unnamed chairman claims that there is a great likelihood that the committee would pursue impeachment, a major step which shows just how serious the case against Christie has become.

Now that Christie’s approval ratings in the state have fallen to an all-time low, there’s likely only a handful of New Jersey-ers who would be sad to see the hot-headed politician on his way out.
