The Bridgegate Verdict’s Preview of the Trump Administration

Four aides to Governor Chris Christie, who is in charge of staffing a prospective Republican White House, are guilty of federal crimes.

Time for spin problems on the Trump transition team.

.

Late Friday morning, a jury in New Jersey returned a verdict in the case against former Chris Christie aides Bill Baroni and Bridget Kelly in Bridgegate, the closure of lanes on the George Washington Bridge. Jurors decided that Baroni and Kelly had conspired to create gridlock on the span between New Jersey and New York, finding them guilty on all nine counts. Two other aides to Christie, who is the Republican governor of New Jersey, had previously pleaded guilty.

As if its not bad enough for four of Christies aides to be guilty of federal crimes, the trial actually looked worse for the governor than that verdict would suggest. Though Christie has not been indicted, the prosecutors case heavily hinged on the assumption that the lane closure was designed to punish Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich, a Democrat, for not endorsing Christie. The trial also suggested that Christie was, despite his protestations to the contrary, involved in the scheme. A text message revealed in filings showed another aide saying that the governor flat out lied in saying that his top staff were not involved. Kelly said much the same, as James Ford reported for Pix11 News:

.

She indicated that Christie not only knew ahead of time about a potential congestion, causing traffic study on the New Jersey side of the bridge that connects the Garden State with New York. She also said, numerous times, that she and Christie had discussed the traffic snafu in the weeks between it happening and the news conference, where Christie and the rest of the staff denied it all.

.

.

This is particularly awkward because it comes as Trump is working to tar Clinton with her ties to disgraced former Representative Anthony Weiner, and with anonymous reports (disputed by other anonymous reports) of looming indictments in an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation. Now, there are actual convictions close to the Trump campaign.

.

In a statement Friday, Christie said he was saddened by the case, but he suggested the aides were lying and reiterated that he had no knowledge of the closures and did not authorize them. Hes scheduled to campaign for Trump in New Hampshire on Saturday, which could prove less than helpful for the presidential candidate.

.

The question here isnt just Christies proximity to Trump. Christie is in charge of hiring the people who would staff a Trump administrationand four close aides whom he hired have now been convicted, or plead guilty, to committing crimes. Even if you buy Christies argument that he had no awareness of the plot, it raises questions about his judgment as an employer.

.

Despite some clear differences, one thing that seems to have brought Christie and Trump together is their pugilistic attitude toward the world and their enemies. Christie has always reveled in counterpunching and vengeance, which is one reason the Bridgegate story was so damaging to him: Even before the four guilty verdicts, the idea that he had acted for revenge fit with what the public already knew about him. Trump, too, has a love of revenge. Get even with people, he told a crowd in Australia in 2011. If they screw you, screw them back 10 times as hard.
