Josh Margolin of ABC News reported that Gov. Chris Christie met with federal prosecutors and FBI agents last month during a secret session at the New Jersey governor’s mansion in Princeton accompanied by his personal attorney, Christopher Wray.
Christie was interrogated by federal investigators looking into the September 2013 closing of access lanes at the George Washington Bridge, which caused unprecedented traffic jams for the better part of a week and crippled Fort Lee, where the GWB is anchored in New Jersey.
It has been alleged that the lanes were closed as political payback for the Democratic mayor of Fort Lee after he declined to endorse Christie’s gubernatorial re-election in 2013, though Christie has repeatedly denied it.
The New Jersey US Attorney’s Office, the FBI, the Manhattan DA’s office, the Legislature and the Port Authority Inspector General have spent a year investigating the scandal.
The scandal has threatened Christie’s future presidential potential chances.
