Christie Says He Would Testify If Called in Bridge Trial

FLOWOOD, Miss. (AP) -

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he would have no problem testifying in a trial of former allies who face criminal charges for their alleged roles in politically-motivated traffic jams at the George Washington Bridge.

Christie, a Republican who’s considering a run for president, traveled to Mississippi and Louisiana on Tuesday to raise money for Republicans.

During a stop in a suburb of Mississippi’s capital city, he spoke to reporters for the first time since the indictments were released on Friday.

“Listen, if they want to subpoena me, that’s fine,” Christie said. “I’ve fully cooperated with the investigation right from the beginning, and I’m happy to tell anybody everything I know, which I’ve done with three separate investigations now that have come to the same conclusion that I said the day after this happened. And so, you know, I don’t have any misgivings about that at all.”
