BridgeGate Over Troubled Water, Con't

Well folks, we've reached the point of Chris Christie Bridgegate saga where the GOP governor of New Jersey, failed presidential hopeful and Trump errand boy for McDonald's runs is now in a heap of serious legal trouble.

A judge has found probable cause for a complaint of official misconduct against Gov. Chris Christie related to the George Washington Bridge lane closures. 
The case now goes to the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office, which will decide whether to bring the issue to a grand jury for possible indictment. 
There was no immediate comment from Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir Grewal. Grewal was appointed to the position by Christie in January when John Molinelli retired. The governor nominated him to permanently retain the position last month, and it wasn't immediately clear if Grewal would recuse himself from the case due to the potential perception of conflict of interest.
Let's understand that a sitting governor is facing a possible indictment, and if there were somehow any last shreds of Christie's future political aspirations left, after being reduced to a national punchline and then deciding his best course of action was hitching his wagon to the Trump Train, they just died screaming in molten lava this morning.

How far the Village's favorite son has fallen.
