Chris Christie Rewarded: Prosecutors won't seek charges against Christie for Bridgegate



http://cdn.thedailybeast.com/content/dailybeast/articles/2016/03/02/donald-trump-s-latest-acquisition-chris-christie-s-soul/jcr:content/image.crop.800.500.jpg/48564674.cached.jpg

Prosecutors will not seek criminal charges against New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) over the 2013 Bridgegate scandal, Reuters reported late Friday.

A letter from the Office of the Bergen County Prosecutor said “that charge cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt,” referring to the criminal misconduct charges.


The office said it could not prove that Christie had knowledge of lane closures on the George Washington Bridge, meant as retaliation against the mayor of Fort Lee for not supporting Christie’s re-election campaign.
The citizen complaint was filed against the governor in 2015.

"The Governor is gratified that the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office has ended this baseless fiasco began by Mr. Brennan and perpetuated by Judge McGeady," Christie spokesman Brian Murray said in a statement.

Iranian Oscar-Nominated Director Will Miss Ceremony Due To Trump's Suspension

The Independent reports:

The Muslim ban enacted by President Donald Trump will keep the Iranian director of an Oscar-nominated film from this year’s ceremony, according to reports. President Trump announced this week that nationals from seven Muslim countries will now be refused access to the United States of America, a move that is said to mean that filmmaker Asghar Farhadi will be unable to attend the prestigious event in February to support his own film.

Trump has ordered a four-month ban on all refugees from entering the country as well as enacting an indefinite ban on all those who hail from Syria. For 90 days, visas will not be issued to nationals from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. Farhadi’s film The Salesman is nominated in the Foreign Language category alongside Land of Mine (Denmark), Toni Erdmann (Germany), It’s Only the End of the World (Canada) and Tanna (Australia).

The Times letter Trump describes as an apology is actually a sales pitch.
