New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is under new scrutiny over Bridgegate following the disclosure that a personal email account he used during the massive, politically-motivated traffic jam triggered by his staff was never seen by investigators.

National Public Radio says an email account Christie shared with his wife, Mary Pat, was never searched despite the fact he used it to message David Samson, chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey which governs the operation of the George Washington Bridge.

As well, a cellphone in his pocket during the 2013 traffic debacle and text messages he sent and received during the investigation of the matter were also not provided to federal criminal investigators overseeing the case.

Christie, a top adviser to Donald Trump who is reportedly in the running to be the billionaire developer's vice-presidential pick, has denied any wrongdoing, chalking Bridgegate up to a few rogue staffers.

When asked about the whereabouts of his cell phone at a news conference on Wednesday, Christie "turned around and walked away," NPR reports.

The latest Bridgegate eruption comes as Trump asks for donations to help him "indict" his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email account to conduct government business as secretary of state.
