    An internal review commissioned by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie concludes that he was not aware of the political retribution being planned by a pair of his associates in the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal. Governor Christie’s account of these events rings true, reads the report, which was conducted at Christie's direction and released Thursday. It is corroborated by many witnesses, and he has conducted himself at every turn as someone who has nothing to hide. The report by a team of lawyers from Gibson, Dunn Crutcher -– a firm with close ties to Christie -- mirrors the governor’s January 9 statement that he was unaware of the plot to close the bridge lanes in order to exact political revenge on Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich.
