There is evidence that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) knew about the lane closures on the George Washington Bridge that were orchestrated by his affiliates for political retribution, according to the former port authority official who ordered the shutdown.
The New York Times obtained a letter from the attorney for David Wildstein, a former Christie appointee at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, that alleges “evidence exists” to prove the governor knew about the closures. If true, that would run contrary to Christie’s repeated claims that he had no prior knowledge of the lane closures.
Wildstein, a former ally and childhood friend of the governor, said it was the “Christie administration’s order” to close the bridge and said “evidence exists as well tying Mr. Christie to having knowledge of the lane closures, during the period when the lanes were closed, contrary to what the governor stated publicly in a two-hour press conference” earlier this month.
“Mr. Wildstein contests the accuracy of various statements that the governor made about him and he can prove the inaccuracy of some,” the letter added.
Christie’s office denied Wildstein’s claims, and said the letter “confirms what the governor has said all along,” that “he had absolutely no prior knowledge of the lane closures before they happened and whatever Mr. Wildstein’s motivations were for closing them to begin with.”
