Evidence supports the fact that Christie was involved in the political payback scheme against those that had not endorsed him by closing lanes of George Washington Bridge during rush hour. Each count of criminal misconduct carries a possible ten year prison sentence so should Christie be charged with more than one count, he could be seeing a much larger prison sentence.

Christie has been a fierce defender and promoter of presidential candidate Donald Trump. Some speculate that he may be named the U.S. Attorney General if Trump is elected as president.
