Jury Selection Begins In Chris Christie Aides' Trial

Sep 08, 2016

As jury selection begins in Chris Christie’s aides’ Bridgegate trial, you’d forgive the Trump transition chair for being a bit distracted as he takes meetings in D.C. today on behalf of Donald Trump.

With two of his closest advisers accused of orchestrating the George Washington Bridge lane closures, New Jersey’s corrupt and vindictive governor has got to be sweating out the possibility of an indictment to call his own. And there’s no way Christie missed the New York Times report that he’s “expected to be on a list of people who federal prosecutors say knew about the scheme,” so that’s only compounding his nervousness.

To kick off the proceedings, American Bridge is today releasing a new report recapping the scandal from August 13, 2013’s “Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee,” to Christie’s secret emails that came to light in June 2016.

American Bridge Vice President Eddie Vale issued the following statement on the report’s release:

“Chris Christie has made it clear that he’s happy to have others take his fall, but with the new discovery of undisclosed Christie emails in June, there’s no ruling out that Christie could himself be under indictment within a matter of months.

“Should it come to that, Christie won’t be alone, happily. With the Trump University scam under fraud and racketeering investigations that are set to go to trial this fall, Christie and Trump will have plenty to chat about.”
