FLASHBACK: Liberals Were Convinced Chris Christie’s Political Career Was Over

Federal probe finds no link to Bridgegate scandal

A federal investigation of the George Washington Bridge closure has failed to uncover a link to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, despite the liberal media’s best efforts to create one:

The U.S. Justice Department investigation into Gov. Chris Christie’s role in the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal has thus far uncovered no evidence indicating that he either knew in advance or directed the closure of traffic lanes on the span, federal officials tell NBC 4 New York.

The news is a blow to the hopes and dreams of MSNBC hosts, who have covered the scandal obsessively for the better part of a year. In fact, many liberals were convinced that Christie was directly involved in the scandal, and had essentially destroyed his political career. A look back:

Walsh insisted that "Christie’s national career is over, and his tenure in Trenton is endangered as well."





As it stands, Chris Christie remains the GOP frontrunner to challenge Joe Biden for the presidency in 2016.
