Star-Ledger's Mulshine: Christie Not Vindicated on Bridge-gate

By    |   Monday, 22 Sep 2014 07:08 PM

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will likely say he's been vindicated in the Bridge-gate scandal as long as no federal charges are lodged against him — but that's not really true, according to Newark Star-Ledger columnist Paul Mulshine.

Last week, it was revealed that a Department of Justice probe into whether Christie was involved in the closing of key traffic lanes for political payback has "thus far" found no connection.

"Christie himself is probably going to be able to say he was vindicated as long as he's not charged," Mulshine said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"He wasn't really vindicated, it was a real mess and it happened under his watch with his people," Mulshine said.

But he doubts Christie will be charged in the scandal in which his top aides were implicated.

"Christie is a one-man jobs office performer…. He gives every U.S. attorney a really good job in his administration," he said.

"The way these things work is if you're a U.S. attorney and you say 'Geez, do I want to tick this guy off when he might become president?' He just named two former U.S. attorneys to the state's Supreme Court. He loves to name former U.S. attorneys to everything.

"They have every reason to think he's a guy they want to know well and not cross. I would assume he's been very wise in that regard."
