According to federal sources speaking to WNBC, the investigation has turned up no evidence Chris Christie had any prior information or directed the closure of the traffic lanes.
So DOJ spent 9 months investigating a lane closure on the GW. But has no interest whatsoever in investigating the IRS scandal, Lois Lerner and missing hard drives, the VA and secret waiting lists, Benghazi, voter intimidation at polling stations and the CIA improperly searching Senate Intelligence Committee computers.
But a lane closure? They're on it.

The U.S. Justice Department investigation into New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s role in 'Bridgegate' has thus far uncovered no information he either knew in advance or directed the closure of traffic lanes on the George Washington Bridge, federal officials tell NBC 4 New York.
The September 2013 closures -- where several entrance lanes to the George Washington Bridge in Ft. Lee were shut down causing a traffic nightmare for commuters -- has been the subject of several federal and state investigations.
Federal officials caution that the investigation begun nine months ago is ongoing and that no final determination has been made, but say that after nine months authorities have uncovered no information Christie either knew in advance or ordered the closure of traffic lanes.
According to one former federal prosecutor, who had no involvement in any of the probes into the bridge closure, investigations of this kind will often turn up a solid connection early in the inquiry.
