TRENTON, N.J. — A ranking Democrat on Thursday called for lawmakers to consider impeachment proceedings against Republican Gov. Chris Christie based on what was revealed during the recently completed George Washington Bridge lane-closing trial in which two of his former aides were convicted.

Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg said there was “considerable testimony” during the trial that Christie knew about the bridge conspiracy, in which, prosecutors say, three allies closed lanes near the bridge to create traffic headaches in Fort Lee to retaliate against its Democratic mayor for not endorsing him for re-election.

In a statement, Weinberg, who co-chaired a legislative committee that probed the lane-closing scandal in 2014, called on Democratic Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto to consider the impeachment.

Weinberg’s request comes as Christie is deeply involved with Republican President-elect Donald Trump as the chair of his White House transition team.
