Today on "This Week," former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani defended New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, but warned that the Garden State governor is putting his political future in jeopardy should evidence surface that he had any knowledge of his aides' alleged actions in the George Washington Bridge scandal.

Christie has become embroiled in an escalating and damaging political scandal over the closing of traffic lanes from Fort Lee, N.J. to the George Washington Bridge, which resulted in major backups for days last September. Christie has denied any knowledge of his aides' alleged actions and fired a senior aide for her involvement in the affair.
