NO SMOKING GUN IN NEWLY RELEASED BRIDGEGATE DOCUMENTS
The latest documents released about Bridgegate apparently contain nothing that implicates Governor Christie. Who maintains that he knew nothing of the plan concocted by his now-fired deputy chief of staff to conduct a so-called traffic study at the George Washington Bridge which backed traffic up into Fort Lee - whose mayor had declined to endorse Christie's reelection bid. But there are still a few inferences. Including a document that shows that Christie and the head of the Port Authority met one week before the order was given. And that the Port Authority's executive director - who wanted to pull the plug on the test - got some resistance from the man who was then New Jersey's top official at the Port Authority - who said in one of the released documents - "there can be no public disclosure." I'm scouring the documents and reporting for 1010 WINS.
