Former Chris Christie Aide Bridget Kelly: 'Ludicrous' To Think I Was The Only One To Know About The Bridge Scandal

Bridget Kelly, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's former deputy chief of staff, said in a press conference Friday she felt betrayed after Christie called her a "liar" and fired her over the George Washington Bridge lane closure scandal.

Kelly was indicted Friday with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, but argued she is innocent of the charges. She also claimed it's "ludicrous" to suggest she was the only Christie aide who had knowledge of the bridge scandal.

Bill Baroni, former deputy executive director of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, was also indicted on Friday, while David Wildstein, a former senior Christie appointee to the Port Authority, pleaded guilty to two counts of conspiracy.

In January 2014, it was revealed Kelly had sent Wildstein an email on August 13 that said it was "time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee." Problems on the bridge began in early September.

Christie has denied having knowledge of the bridge scandal.
