Christina RennaA former staff member in Gov. Chris Christie's office today testified that she “had no knowledge or involvement” in the plan to close New Jersey toll lanes to the George Washington Bridge — and that she feared Christie's team would fire her for reporting suspicious activity by her boss.

Christina Genovese Renna, who worked for Bridget Anne Kelly at the time of the lane closures, described her former boss as erratic and unstable, "enormously overwhelmed and enormously stressed with day-to-day life."

Kelly wrote the famous email calling for some "traffic problems in Fort Lee" weeks before the toll lanes were shut on the George Washington Bridge, causing a massive traffic holdup for days.

Renna said it was hard to picture Kelly as the driving force behind the plan to shut down the access lanes to the bridge.

"I wouldn't say she was the architect, but she was instrumental in the process ," she said.
