If Bridget Kelly and Bill Baroni are guilty and that appears to be the situation

so is Crispie Christie

Two former allies of Governor Christie were “loyal lieutenants” who used their government powers to punish political targets.

An in-depth look at the scandal over the lane closures at the George Washington Bridge and related aftershocks. Click here to launch.

In a summation lasting about four hours, Assistant U.S. Attorney Lee Cortes said that Kelly, the governor’s former deputy chief of staff, and Baroni, the governor’s former top executive appointee at the Port Authority, “shared an intense commitment to the political success of Governor Chris Christie.”

“They saw themselves as his loyal lieutenants who were free to use their government jobs to launch political attacks and who never attempted to separate politics from their jobs in public service,” Cortes said.

Kelly’s attorney, Michael Critchley, is scheduled to make his closing arguments on Monday. Jurors are expected to begin their deliberations Tuesday.

Baroni and Kelly are accused of conspiring to reduce access to the bridge in Fort Lee to punish the borough’s mayor for not endorsing Christie’s reelection. The pair, both 44, are charged with conspiracy, fraud and violating the civil rights of Fort Lee residents to travel freely.

Although Wildstein admitted to being the mastermind of the plan, he told the court that he was knowingly aided by Kelly and Baroni.
That is all - fingers crossed!!!

Donald Trump Kellyanne Conway: Trump fan chanting ‘Jew-S-A’ behaved in ‘deplorable’ way

A Donald Trump supporter who screamed “Jew-S-A” at reporters at a rally on Saturday night behaved in a “deplorable” way, the Republican nominee’s campaign manager said on Sunday.

On Saturday night in Phoenix, Arizona, a man wearing a “Hillary for prison 2016” T-shirt turned around during a chant of “USA” to face the press enclosure, calling reporters the “enemy” and shouting “Jew-S-A”.

“That man’s conduct was deplorable,” Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, told CNN. “His conduct is completely unacceptable and does not reflect our campaign or our candidate.

“And had I been there, I would have asked security to remove him immediately. Clearly, he doesn’t speak for the campaign or the candidate.”

He did speak for the campaign Kelly - and many others at Groper Don the Con's rallies behave the same way. You are all 'deplorables' Kelly.

The head of civil protection, Fabrizio Curcio, has said at a press conference in the town of Rieti that “a dozen” people are reported injured, according to the Italian newspaper La Stampa. All the injuries are reported to be minor except for one who is said to be more seriously hurt.

My colleague in Rome, Stephanie Kirchgaessner, has tweeted:Steph Kirchgaessner @skirchy

Temple Taggart: Donald Trump wants to 'silence his accusers’ with legal threats

One of the women accusing Donald Trump of inappropriate sexual behavior, Temple Taggart, a former Miss Utah, said on Friday she was ready to countersue the Republican presidential candidate if he carried out his promise to sue all of his accusers.

Taggart, who has accused Trump of kissing her on the lips without consent, is one of 12 women who have come forward since the publication of a 2005 Access Hollywood tape in which the businessman boasted of kissing and groping women without their consent. Trump, who has denied all accusations against him, said last weekend he would sue all his accusers after the presidential election.

Taggart, who has hired the lawyer Gloria Allred, said on Friday: “I’m not afraid of you, Mr Trump. If you carry out your threat to sue me, I will defend myself.”

Threatened or blackmailed?

Your thoughts!
