Chris Christie and Andrew Cuomo spoke regularly as Bridgegate unfolded


New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie spoke with then New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo during the 2013 George Washington Bridge lane-closure scandal that unfolded, complaining that New York City officials were too aggressive in trying to uncover a motive for the bridge closure, reports the Wall Street Journal. 

Both men denied such conversations ever took place, but they've been recounted in the Bridge-gate trial that's been happening in the recent weeks. 

Supposedly, the two men discussed Port Authority Executive Director Patrick Foye's suspicions concerning Christie's plans to seemingly bend the authority's power to his own political ends.

A Cuomo spokesperson said that Port Authority's dislike of state governments was discussed at many different levels but that, "There was no conversation between the governors concerning a 'plan' to have Pat Foye stand down or to have the issue 'whitewashed' through a report." 

However, testimony in the trial seems to indicate otherwise.
