Trump Hires ‘Bridgegate’ Chris Christie Aide

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is reportedly hiring Bill Stepien, the former Chris Christie aide who was fired from his position after the “Bridgegate” scandal erupted in January 2014. Stepien is a Republican operative who will be taking over as national field director on the real-estate mogul’s campaign to assist with voter turnout. He was brought on by the campaign’s new CEO, Steve Bannon. Stepien managed both of Gov. Christie’s election campaigns and was his deputy chief of staff for legislative affairs. He invoked his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination when called to testify about his emails regarding the controversial lane-closure action on the George Washington Bridge.
