Republican Gov. Chris Christie approved of a traffic study on the George Washington Bridge, his former deputy chief of staff testified Friday in her criminal trial, but federal prosecutors say it was actually a cover story for a political payback scheme designed to cause traffic jams. After the conversation with Christie, Bridget Kelly sent an email that read "time for some traffic problems" to David Wildstein, the self-described mastermind of the plot.
