Former Christie aide heading House CIA investigation
August 17, 2009

Jon Corzine's campaign has spent the last several days raising questions about alleged political interference in the U.S. Attorney's office under Republican Christopher Christie. Corzine alleges that phone conversations between former White House political operative Karl Rove and Christie while Christie was still serving as New Jersey's top federal prosecutor cast doubt on the prosecutorial decisions made by the office during Christie's entire tenure.

But Corzine's message may have been pre-empted by his own party last month when former Christie deputy Adam Lurie was hired by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to head the committee's official investigation into an alleged secret CIA assassination program.

Lurie spent four years as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Special Prosecutions Division of Christie's Newark office. Committee co-chairpersons Silvestre Reyes (D-TX) and Jan Schakowsky (R-IL) lauded Lurie's credentials and the experience he gained serving under Christie. Schakowsky called Lurie's background "impeccable." But it was Reyes' praise for Lurie that may prove troublesome for Corzine's current campaign strategy of attacking the integrity of Christie's office.


"I am pleased that Mr. Lurie has accepted this challenge at such a critical time in the history of the Committee. His experience as a public integrity prosecutor demonstrates that he is capable of conducting apolitical, non-partisan investigations," said Reyes. "I am confident that he is dedicated to conducting the fair, methodical, and complete investigations that will best serve all members of the Committee."

Reyes' effusive praise of Lurie leaves Corzine to explain how Christie's deputy could have served in such an "apolitical, non-partisan" manner while serving in Christie's allegedly politically charged office. If Corzine's charges against Christie were true, surely the House Intelligence Committee would not have brought Lurie in to handle such a politically sensitive investigation. ...
