U.S. Says for First Time That Christie Knew of Bridge Plot

Anne KellyNew Jersey Governor Chris Christie was told about politically motivated traffic jams near the George Washington Bridge as they crippled a town whose mayor refused to back his re-election, a U.S. prosecutor said for the first time since the scandal became public.

The assertion came at the start of a trial of Bridget Anne Kelly and Bill Baroni, who are accused of shutting bridge access lanes to paralyze traffic in Fort Lee, New Jersey, during the first week of school in September 2013. Prosecutors say they sought to punish Mayor Mark Sokolich, a Democrat who didn’t back Christie, a Republican.

Trump behavior like male chimpTrump is set to debate his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, on Sept. 26. When it happens, Goodall told The Atlantic she’ll be thinking of “Mike,” a chimpanzee she studied that displayed dominance by kicking kerosene cans, creating a racket that sent would-be challengers fleeing.

Unsurprisingly, Trump has already boasted that he will come out on top, telling The New York Times “I know how to handle Hillary.”


Trump: Clinton's Guards Should ‘Disarm’

TrumpDuring a much looser rally in Miami on Friday night, Donald Trump, veering way off his scripted remarks, seemed to make another veiled threat against his opponent Hillary Clinton.

"I think her bodyguards should drop all weapons," Trump said. "They should disarm immediately. Take their guns away, let's see what happens to her."
