New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie did not have kind words for the New York Police Department yesterday.

Christie said he doesn't recall being briefed about the spying in 2007, while he was the state's top federal prosecutor and was “concerned” that he was kept in the dark.

 

Speaking Wednesday night on Townsquare Media's "Ask the Governor" radio program, the governor questioned whether the NYPD's secrecy was "born out of arrogance or paranoia," according to the Huffington Post.

"I know they think they their jurisdiction is the world. Their jurisdiction is New York City," Christie said. "My concern is this kind of affectation that the NYPD seems to have that they are the masters of the universe."

Christie's comments came in response to a series of reports by The Associated Press that detailed the monitoring of Muslims in New York and surrounding states, including New Jersey and Connecticut, by the NYPD.
