    U.S. Attorney argues photos taken at 9/11 Memorial are key Bridgegate evidence



    ... The photographs were taken at an event at the 9/11 Memorial in New York City and show Christie engaged in conversations with Baroni, the former deputy executive of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and fellow Port Authority official David Wildstein, who pleaded guilty and is now the prosecutor's star cooperating witness ...

    CHRISTIE Bridgegate testimony considered -- JOE PALAIA dead at 89 -- REVEL owner frustrated with NJ


    TELLING IT LIKE IT IS, THE WHOLE IS AND NOTHING BUT THE IS — “Bridegate lawyers weigh Christie subpoena,” by The AP: Defense attorneys for Bridget Kelly, Christie's former deputy chief of staff, and Bill Baroni, a top Christie appointee to the agency that operates the George Washington Bridge linking New Jersey and New York City, have danced around the issue of whether they will subpoena Christie. The prospect that Christie could testify drew more intrigue last week with a court filing that described a former aide texting that the governor ‘flat out lied’ to reporters in December 2013, when he claimed no one in his office was involved.” http://bit.ly/2bGxCP5

    Chris Christie is more tarnished than ever


    THERE ARE few governors in the nation so widely reviled in their home states as New Jersey’s Chris Christie, the man who would lead Donald Trump’s transition to the White House. Little wonder: Many New Jerseyans by now believe Mr. Christie, a Republican, was clued in to the lane closures three years ago at the George Washington Bridge, which triggered cataclysmic traffic jams for four days, all in service of punishing a local mayor who had the gall to oppose Mr. Christie’s gubernatorial reelection campaign ...
