McCain to Christie: Answer all questions

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) says Chris Christie needs to answer every question about the George Washington Bridge scandal during Thursday's press conference.

“Put everything on the table. Answer every question. If it’s a three-hour press conference ... answer every question, every comment and then move on,” McCain said Thursday on MSNBC’s “The Daily Rundown.”

Gov. Christie (R-N.J.) is expected to hold a press conference Thursday morning at 11 a.m. about the scandal.

The governor denied Wednesday evening that he was aware of the email exchanges.
