Bridgegate Defense Lawyer Calls Christie and His Inner Circle Cowards. Jury Deliberations Begin.

CBS News New York reports, “A defense attorney thundered in closing arguments [on October 31] in the George Washington Bridge lane-closing trial that Gov. Chris Christie and his inner circle were ‘cowards’ for not testifying against a former staffer on trial for using gridlock for political retaliation.” The jury started its deliberations in the afternoon and are scheduled to return this morning.
