SURPRISE! Feds Can’t Find Connection Between Chris Christie and Bridgegate
It certainly wasn’t for lack of trying.
NBC News in New York reported…
After 9 Months, Federal Probe of GWB Closure Finds No Link to Christie, Federal Sources Say
The U.S. Justice Department investigation into New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s role in “Bridgegate” has thus far uncovered no information he either knew in advance or directed the closure of traffic lanes on the George Washington Bridge, federal officials tell NBC 4 New York.
The September 2013 closures — where several entrance lanes to the George Washington Bridge in Ft. Lee were shut down causing a traffic nightmare for commuters — has been the subject of several federal and state investigations.
Of course, finding out the truth in this story was never the goal.
The left, aided by their allies in media, were just trying to poison the well for Christie. They’ve attempted the exact same thing with Rand Paul and Rick Perry.
Ed Morrissey of Hot Air adds this point…
Does this make Christie a winner in Bridgegate? Well, that might be a stretch, but he’s not going to be the big loser in it. Had his critics just stuck to focusing on his executive skills and lack of control in his office this scandal might have hurt, but the hysteria of blowing up Bridgegate into a Watergate-scale scandal created a bubble that popped in their faces. Hardly anyone has remained interested in this story at all over the last several months except MSNBC … which makes the leak to NBC New York a little ironic.
The worst part of this is that the damage to Christie has been done.
Liberals wanted to damage Chris Christie and they achieved their goal. No journalistic retractions will change the public’s mind now that he, unlike Obama, has been linked to scandal.
