Traffic barrier with
Hmmm:
David Wildstein, the former Port Authority official at the center of the George Washington Bridge lane-closings scandal, spent several days meeting with federal prosecutors in Newark last week, according to a report posted online by a Washington-based publication that says it covers “insider news” about the U.S. Department of Justice.
The Feds wouldn't comment on the report, according to the Newark Star-Ledger, so we don't really know what if anything was discussed in the meetings. However, keep in mind that Wildstein is the guy who claims to have told New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie about the lane closures while they were in progress, a claim that Christie's own whitewashing report didn't completely dispute. Moreover, this is a tantalizing reminder of the grounds upon which Wildstein had said he would cooperate:
Wildstein’s lawyer, Alan Zegas, could not be immediately reached for comment. In recent months, Zegas has said publicly on multiple occasions that his client would cooperate with investigators if he were to be granted immunity from prosecution.
Obviously, we don't know anything beyond the fact that these meetings seem to have taken place, and that David Wildstein once claimed he had evidence that Christie new about the lane closures while they were taking place. If nothing else, perhaps these talks he's having with the Feds will help sort out whether in fact he was telling the truth.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
