Traffic passes through the toll booths at the George Washington Bridge, in Fort Lee, N.J., Saturday, Jan. 11, 2014. The September lane closings near the George Washington Bridge that caused huge traffic jams and now threaten the rise of Republican star Chris Christie violated federal law, a chief official said in an email ordering the lanes reopened. The Sept. 13 email was among thousands of pages released Friday by a New Jersey legislative committee investigating the scandal, which could haunt Christie's expected run for president in 2016. The documents mostly involve the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, the agency that runs the heavily trafficked bridge. (AP Photo/Richard Drew)
