Transcript for Former Chris Christie Aides Convicted in 'Bridgegate' Trial
It'll be a long, exciting and historic night and ABC news will be with you every step of the way. Major headline involving Chris Christie. Two of his former aides convicted of conspiracy and fraud in the so-called bridgegate scandal. Christie has now canceled a plan trip for trump and David Wright is on the story from New Jersey. Hey, David, good morning to you. Reporter: Good morning, Dan and there is the bridge that gave the scandal its name. It looks beautiful this morning but this was the scene of a traffic jam caused on purpose with serious repercussions even now. Governor Christie was due to be out on the campaign trail with Donald Trump today until those guilty verdicts came back, now we won't see him. This morning, the traffic jam that brought the George Washington bridge to a standstill continues to haunt the men and women accused of making it happen. Allegedly as payback for a new Jersey mayor who refused to endorse New Jersey governor Chris Christie. Bridget Anne Kelly and bill Baroni were both top Christie aides. This. This is not over. Reporter: Both of them vicked Friday on all nine counts. I am innocent of these charges. Reporter: Christie felt it necessary to reassert his innocence, that may be clear once again in a statement he said I had no knowledge prior to or during these lane reassignments and had no role in authorizing them. No believable evidence was presented to contradict that fact. But in the trial witnesses testified he was deeply involved in the traffic jam and the cover-up. Even as he insisted otherwise. The scandal crippled Christie's candidacy for president. It also may have cost him a shot at the vice presidency too. Trump reportedly offered him the job but withdrew it out of concern this November trial might end up being a distraction. Even though trump has made it clear he likes Christie. I do have confidence in him and I hope it all works out well for him. Reporter: Christie is now in charge of the transition team if trump should win on Tuesday. His aides, they're headed to jail. These convictions carry a maximum sentence of 20 years behind bars, but they'll likely get a lot less time. Paula. Interesting to see if they'll stay on that transition team. David, thank you.
