Thompson: Bridgegate Indictments Will Be Cover Up Related

Brian ThompsonBrian Thompson, the WNBC 4-NY reporter who broke the story of potential indictments in the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandals coming next month, told MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki this morning that the likely federal charges will be related to a coordinated effort to cover up.

“This is what ties it all together as a single unified prosecution, ” Thompson said, “that is they are all involved in this, they all have a finger print or more, somewhere in this, which is, what our sources are saying, all wraps up into a conspiracy to cover up.”

Thompson said that the alleged cover up started “that week of the shut downs” not a month or two months later.  Thompson reiterated that the cover up began on the same week that the lane closures occurred.

Thompson said that at least two of the principals have made a deal, are singing, or are trying to make a deal, with the U.S. Attorney.

Thompson speculated that if the indictments come in January, that there will be criminal trails at about the time of the New Hampshire Presidential Primary in 2016.

“That is the news the Christie people did not want to hear, ” Kornacki said.

    What is apologist Jim Granelli going to say now: that this was always a made-up phony scandal? I don’t think so, not already have several firings and resignations. Sounds very real to me.

    If Wisniewski and Weinberg couldn’t find even a thread to get to Christies, the extremely strong likelihood is that Fishman won’t be able to, either.

    As for the underlings, it is only to be expected that they would scurry around covering their butts.

    Remember, neither Christie’s own report of 6 million dollars cost to the taxpayer and Wisnewski’s legislative panel had access to the 6 key witnesses. They refused to testify; however, they did sing to the feds, lol

    Ain’t this the truth….


    Where’s the investigation into people who could just very well cause a bunch of rear end accidents on an interstate; and potentially get someone killed.

    Weren’t those six among the scores subpoenaed?

  6. @Sancho said at 7:00 pm on December 6th, 2014:

    No ones knows how many the feds subpoenaed, it’s a secret process–still ongoing.

  7. Sancho Panza said at 11:14 pm on December 6th, 2014:

    The subpoenas were issued by the joint legislative committee.

    Not even a good try.

    The US attorney has no power over Christie because Norcross calls All the Shots and they have a plan all the way to the Presidency

    Norcross sent Krone and Booker to DC to defame and destoy Obama.

    Norcross suceeded and stayed behind the shadows.

    Norcross wants Christie in office
