WNBC’s Jonathan Dienst reports Thursday evening that federal investigators have found no connection between New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the George Washington Bridge lane closures.

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.

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.

Hardest hit by the news: MSNBC.

After nine months, isn’t it time to move on? Or does the scandal just go deeper?
