Christie Won’t Be Prosecuted For Bridgegate

Governor Chris Christie won’t be charged in connection with the Bridgegate scandal.

Bergen County prosecutors are refusing to act on a civilian complaint against the governor, saying there’s not enough evidence to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Activist Bill Brennan argued that Christie should be charged because he never reversed the George Washington Bridge lane closures carried out by his aides.  David Wildstein pleaded guilty in the case, while Bridget Anne Kelly and Bill Baroni were both convicted at trial.

A judge twice found there was probable cause for the complaint against Christie to move forward.  However, prosecutors now say they won’t advance the case.  It's possible that a special prosecutor could still be appointed.
