In the federal Bridgegate trial, a jury determined that two of Chris Christie's top aids, Bill Baroni and Bridget Kelly, are guilty on all counts.
The Observer broke the news. Bill Baroni, who served as Christie’s top official at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and Bridget Anne Kelly, who was the governor’s deputy chief of staff, each faced seven counts of conspiracy, fraud and related charges. The most serious charges carry a maximum of up to 20 years in prison. Sentencing is set for Feb. 21.
The trial revealed details that bring the incident closer to his doorstep and cast doubt on whether he was truly in the dark about the scheme.
