Chris Christie Cleared of Bridge Scandal Blame

No evidence, says DOJ


The U.S. Justice Department investigation into Gov. Chris Christie's role in the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal has thus far uncovered no evidence indicating that he either knew in advance or directed the closure of traffic lanes on the span, federal officials tell NBC 4 New York.

The September 2013 closures—where several entrance lanes to the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee were shut down, causing a traffic nightmare for commuters—has been the subject of several federal and state investigations.
