Chris Christie won’t be charged in ‘Bridgegate’ scandal

New York (CNN)New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will not be charged with misconduct in the so called “Bridgegate” scandal, Bergen County prosecutors said Friday.

The prosecutor’s office said it didn’t believe it could show the charge in court.
    A statement from a governor’s spokesman thanked Gurbir S. Grewal’s staff for termination “this baseless fiasco.”
      “It is right and appropriate that this injustice against the governor is finally over,” spokesman Brian Murray said.
      A probable cause hearing on a criminal summons was scheduled for next Thursday in municipal court. The New Jersey resident who filed the charge and summons considers the hearing will be held.
