There were always three possible scenarios for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Bridgegate: One, that he was explicitly involved in the shutting down of three lanes feeding the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee, New Jersey, as political retribution against a no-name mayor who didn't endorse him in an election Christie ran away with. Two, that he was marginally involved, in that he told staffers to "take care of" the problem mayor but wasn't specific about the actions to take. And three, that he wasn't involved at all; that an appointee at the Port Authority and staffers in his office cooked this up unbeknownst to him, didn't tell him and repeatedly lied to him about their involvement until e-mails proved otherwise.
