Will Chris Christie be arrested in Bridgegate scandal? May 1, 2015

Today in New Jersey, David Wildstein entered a guilty plea and indictments against Bridget Kelly and Bill Baroni were unsealed.  This left most people wondering, well what about Chris Christie?  At least some were expecting that he would be arrested.  US Attorney Paul Fishman made it clear that there was no one else that would be indicted.  However, he added, based upon the evidence available to him now.

Thus, there are two possible scenarios.  One, Christie was not really involved in the bridge closings just like he said.  These three people planned this, going as far back as 2011, but never told the Governor.  That seems kind of hard to believe but it is at least a possibility.  Another scenario is that Fishman did not want to indict Christie based only on the cooperation of Wildstein.  The plan may be to see if Kelly, Baroni or both may decide to flip now that they have been indicted.  If all three of them point the finger at Christie, Fishman will have a much better case against the Governor.

Only time will tell how this one shakes out.
