How Much Does Bridgegate Really Affect Christie?
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie avoided a federal indictment Friday, but the lane closure scandal will still likely hurt his presidential chances.By Matt Moreno | May 4, 2015
Inside a federal courthouse — not where New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie wants to start his presidential campaign. That is, if he starts a bid for the White House at all.
"Mr. Christie knew of the lane closures while they were occurring, and evidence exists to establish that," attorney Alan Zegas said Friday.
A federal court announced Friday the indictments of three former top-aides for Christie, Port Authority officials David Wildstein and Bill Baroni as well as deputy chief of staff Bridget Kelly, for their alleged parts in the Fort Lee lane closure scandal in September 2013. Wildstein has pleaded guilty.
