Christie: Planned Parenthood Videos First Test for Loretta Lynch

‘This attorney general, in her first real challenge, has to show everybody, is she going to be the chief federal law enforcement officer of this country, or is she going play politics’

CHRISTIE: PLANNED PARENTHOOD VIDS FIRST TEST TO SEE WHAT KIND OF AG LYNCH IS (Breitbart)

New Jersey Governor and Republican presidential candidate Chris Christie stated that the Planned Parenthood videos are the first test of whether Attorney General Loretta Lynch is “going to be the chief federal law enforcement officer of this country, or is she going play politics” on Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor.”

Christie was asked whether, as a former US Attorney, he could believe Planned Parenthood wasn’t being investigated. He answered, “No, I can’t. Given what we’ve seen on these videos and the history, there absolutely should be. There’s enough to investigate. Let’s get the facts, as you said in your opening. Let’s get the facts, let’s see where they lead, and let’s move on this. Because, we’re talking about some things that are highly offensive to most of the people in America, and if, as alleged on the video, they’re against the law.”

Christie added, “Well, he [President Obama] took an oath, as you said, and I took the same kind of oath. You say, ‘I swear to enforce the laws,’ not the laws I like, or the laws I agree with, but the laws. And this president has not done that. And this attorney general, in her first real challenge, has to show everybody, is she going to be the chief federal law enforcement officer of this country, or is she going play politics?” And that he believes Attorney General Lynch can go against her boss, pointing to the resignations of Attorney Generals during the Nixon administration and asking, “why shouldn’t we expect the same type of ethical conduct and righteousness from the current attorney general?”
