(CNN) - New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will be sworn-in for his second term Tuesday. The "Bridgegate" scandal, the audit of whether Christie misused Hurricane Sandy relief money on ads, his hero Bruce Springsteen making fun of him on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" - all those recent career low-lights have actually been part of his first term.
Today, as Christie prepares to take the oath of office once again, the specter of Hurricane Sandy is coming back to haunt him. The disaster devastated parts of his state, and initially sent his approval rating skyrocketing for the way he handled it. But now, his actions in the wake of Sandy are under new scrutiny.
CNN's Jake Tapper reports.

(CNN) - A team of internationally renowned war crimes prosecutors and forensic experts has found "direct evidence" of "systematic torture and killing" by the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime, the lawyers on the team say in a new report.

CNN's "Amanpour" was given the report in a joint exclusive with The Guardian newspaper.
