Christie ‘BridgeGate’ Offers Trump A Strategy To Beat Hush Money Case

  • A “Bridgegate” case involving on-again, off-again Trump pal Chris Christie may give the defense team some of its most fertile ground to attack the prosecutor’s allegations that the former president was engaged in a conspiracy to defraud. All 34 felonies filed against the former president alleged he falsified his company’s documents with an “intent to defraud” and hide hush money payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels.
  • Back in 2020, a unanimous U.S. Supreme Court in a case called Kelly vs. United States overturned the convictions of former Gov. Christie’s aides in New Jersey in a scandal involving the closure of bridge lanes. The justices ruled the defendants couldn’t be convicted in a conspiracy to defraud without proof they sought to steal someone’s money or property.
