High court confirms Bridgegate wasn’t a crime

BY David Cruz, Senior Correspondent |

In an unanimous decision the United States Supreme Court has thrown out the convictions of two former aides to Gov. Chris Christie for their role in the Bridgegate scandal. Six years after Bridget Ann Kelly and Bill Baroni conspired to shut down lanes on the George Washington Bridge the court ruled the government overreached.

Lawyers for Kelly and Baroni called the incident a “bareknuckle New Jersey politics, not graft.” Senior Correspondent David Cruz spoke with Kelly’s attorney Michael Critchley.
