Report: Christie Had No Prior Knowledge of Bridgegate (Washington Free Beacon)

Governor Chris Christie (R., N.J.) had no prior knowledge of the decision to create traffic jams at the George Washington Bridge, according to an internal review.

The report released by former federal prosecutor Randy Mastro relied on interviews with Christie and other officials in his administration and 250,000 documents, many of them emails and text messages.

“We found that Gov. Christie had no knowledge beforehand of this George Washington Bridge realignment idea,” Mastro said Thursday at a news conference.
