Mayor of Fort Lee, N.J. not ready to take Chris Christie at his word

As scrutiny and speculation continue to surround Chris Christie's alleged role in "Bridgegate," on Monday evening Piers Morgan invited Michael Sokolich to share his assessment.

The mayor of Fort Lee – the town most impacted by the George Washington Bridge lane closures of September – Sokolich seemed reluctant to simply take New Jersey's top politician at his word:

"I think a sworn statement from the governor I think would be helpful," said Sokolich of Christie, who has repeatedly denied knowing of a plan to shut down lanes on the nation's busiest bridge. "I think that would start as a foundation to rebuild trust in New Jersey, just no spin doctor – absolute unconditional statement that he had no knowledge and I think folks would rely on that and I think in Fort Lee we would start to regain and rebuild that trust too."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Sokolich, the full context of which is exclusive to the web, and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.
