‘Bridgegate’ Testimony Alleges Lanes Were Closed for Political Reasons

David Wildstein, former executive of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, gave testimony on Wednesday in the ‘Bridgegate’ case that may shed doubt on NJ Governor Chris Christie’s denial of his knowledge of the scandal.

Wildstein claimed that lanes were closed on the George Washington Bridge as a form of punishment for not endorsing Christie’s re-election bid in 2013. He also stated that Christie laughed about the lane closure and allegedly said sarcastically, “I would imagine that he wouldn’t be getting his phone calls returned.”

According to Wildstein, many key figures in Christie’s inner circle were well aware of the plot, including Christie himself, whom he told in September 2013.

Christie has not been accused of any wrongdoing.

Bridget Kelly, Christie’s former deputy chief of staff, and Bill Baroni, former executive of the Port Authority, are facing charges for deliberately creating Gridlock in the city of Fort Lee, New Jersey.

Defense lawyers are attempting to paint Wildstein as the mastermind behind the scheme, despite the fact that Baroni was his superior, Reuters reports. Baroni’s lawyer Michael Baldassare said Wildstein was biased in his testimony, as he is seeking a reduced sentence.

Wildstein has already plead guilty on two counts of conspiracy.
