The pressing, constitutional question wasn't whether Nixon himself had drawn up the harebrained scheme to break into Democratic Party offices inside the Watergate apartment complex in 1972. It was whether Nixon knew his underlings were running a criminal enterprise from inside the executive offices. The same holds true for Christie today.

Even if federal and state legislative investigators are unable to prove that Christie gave the order for the bridge closures, or had advanced knowledge, he has no chance of becoming the Republican Party's nominee for president in 2016.
