Christie says FBI nominee will remain his Bridgegate lawyer – WDEL 1150AM

Gov. Chris Christie said the lawyer who has represented him in the in the George Washington Bridge lane-closing scandal will remain his attorney “unless and until” he gets sworn in to run the FBI.

The Republican governor made the comments Tuesday at an event in Pennington.

Christopher Wray’s firm, Atlanta-based King & Spalding, has been paid $2.1 million since Christie hired him in 2014.

Bills show the firm was paid $653,034 during the trial that led to the convictions of two former Christie aides in the political revenge plot. Christie wasn’t charged.

Wray held the missing cellphone that was used by the governor and contained about a dozen text messages that Christie exchanged with a former staffer during a legislative hearing related to the bridge in 2013.
