Just gave dog a bath for the first time in 10 months, reminding me why I wait 10 months to do that job. 🐶

The most dangerous aspect of this indictment for freedom of the press is that it would criminalize the encouragement of leaks of newsworthy classified information, criminalize the acceptance of such information and criminalize publication of it. That’s criminalizing journalism.

Bridget Kelly goes to prison next week for Bridgegate. Before she leaves, she gave me a voicemail from a man sent to be her lawyer when Bridgegate broke. She told him what she knew. Then, he quit. Then, Gov. Christie put him on the NJ Supreme Court. :
