Republicans demand that Hillary Clinton release her emails from when she was Secretary of State, but somehow Christie feels he doesn't have to do the same thing with his emails. His aren't related to state secrets, but he may very well have broken the law, and at the very least we should know his full role.
Politiicians are elected by the people to serve the people. This means that they need to be trustworthy. If politicians are intentionally withholding information from the public, this reduces their trustworthiness and it means that they are not properly performing their duties as public servants. Especially in matters of money and the economy, politicians should be transparent about how money is flowing in the state because people pay taxes to support the state and they have a right to know where their money is going.
Chris Christie is running for president and facing down scandal. He should be compelled to release the Bridegate emails and not hide his indiscretions from his public. The emails will be essential to voters determining whether or not he is trustworthy or capable of managing the highest office in the land
Since Chris Christie is running for president, we need transparency. He claims he knew nothing about the Bridgegate situation, but since he is refusing to release emails, how do we know he is telling the truth? By not releasing the emails, he is making himself look dishonest in the eyes of the American people.
