Missing voices: The witnesses Bridgegate jurors never got to hear

Publisher: The Star Ledger

Dan Wenner and Dennis Kearney were quoted in, "Missing voices: The witnesses Bridgegate jurors never got to hear," in The Star Ledger. Wenner and Kearney both discussed the likely reasons that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie did not testify as a witness in the Bridgegate trial. "There are often cases in which a jury hears a lot about a particular person, but that person does not testify for a whole host of reasons," Wenner explained. "The governor has been all over this case and the jury undoubtedly is interested in hearing what he has to say about what he knew and what he directed others to do or that he had nothing to do with it," Wenner added. Kearney said that Christie could have undermined the arguments of both the defense and prosecution. "Putting a witness on the stand without knowing what he or she will say is playing Russian Roulette with four bullets instead of one," Kearney remarked.
