(Newark, NJ) -- Prosecutors in the ongoing Bridgegate trial are reportedly working to establish that several high ranking people including the New Jersey Governor knew about the debilitating and dangerous GWB lane closures in 2013.
One former federal prosecutor points out to the "The Wall Street Journal" that the court must consider "criminal act" verses "criminal intent." He says just because you become aware of a crime doesn't mean it's enough to charge you with it.
The government's key witness former Port Authority Executive David Wildstein has testified that Governor Christie was told about the lane closure scheme while it was happening. Christie hasn't been charged in the case and has denied any knowledge of the plan.
