Christie Exonerated on Bridgegate

An internal investigation commissioned by Governor Chris Christie’s office has cleared the New Jersey governor of any wrongdoing and blamed senior staffers for Bridgegate.

The internal review into Bridgegate was conducted by a lawfirm hired by Christie’s office. Christie was accused to have undertaken the George Washington bridge closure as political payback after the Fort Lee mayor failed to endorse Governor Christie for re-election.

“Our investigation found that Governor Christie did not know of the lane realignment beforehand and had no involvement in the decision to realign the lanes.”

The 340 page report said that Christie was not aware of the closure, nor did he direct it. According to the report senior staff had access to Christie’s e-mails and texts.

The report finds that former Port Authority of New York and New Jersey official David Wildstein and ex-Christie aide Bridget Kelly were behind the closures.

During an interview of the investigators on FOX, the investigator stated that Christie had no knowledge or involvement in the closures, nor was he told about it.

This will most certainly not be the end of Christie’s problems on Bridgegate. Christie has not commented on the report.
