A New Jersey judge on Thursday issued a criminal summons for Gov. Chris Christie in connection to his role in the George Washington Bridge scandal.
Judge Roy McGeady issued a probable cause summons for Christie, saying theres evidence to show he might have known that aides were up to political shenanigans and did nothing to top it.
It comes weeks after activist Bill Brennan filed a complaint against Christie citing official misconduct. Brennan said he filed the complaint over the fallout from the 2013 Bridgegate lane closures, which he said cost taxpayers millions of dollars.
Defendant Christopher J. Christie knowingly refrained from ordering that his subordinates take all necessary action to reopen local access lanes to the George Washington Bridge from Fort Lee, New Jersey, that had been closed with purposed to injure Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich, along with Fort Lee residents who were deprived of the benefit and enjoyment of their community as a consequence of this intentional evil minded act taken by public officials acting on the authority vested in them by the Office of the Governor of the State of New Jersey, according to Brennans complaint.
Two of Christies top aides are now on trial for allegedly hatching the plot to close entry lanes to the GWB in Fort Lee as political payback for that citys mayor, who didnt endorse the governors re-election bid.
McGeadys ruling now puts the ball squarely in the court of Gurbir Grewal, the acting prosecutor of Bergen County.

official misconduct lmao
Let me guess....a liberal “judge?”
Consider the more serious crimes of Obama and Hillary. This is infuriating and moves everyday toward fascism.
There’s no way Christie didn’t know about it. Krispy Kreme has never been a conservative.
What was he supposed to do close a second bridge?
He shot Li’l Marco
But he did not shoot the G. Wash. Bridge.
That’s what you get for hugging obamass.
Going after prominent Repubs using liberal judges is now a key action in the Dem playbook. And liberal judges are corrupt enough to do it because for them, it is Party over all else, including the law and the Constitution
