WNBC’s Jonathan Dienst reports Thursday evening that federal investigators have found no connection between New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the George Washington Bridge lane closures.

The U.S. Justice Department investigation into New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s role in “Bridgegate” has thus far uncovered no information he either knew in advance or directed the closure of traffic lanes on the George Washington Bridge, federal officials tell NBC 4 New York.

Federal officials caution that the investigation begun nine months ago is ongoing and that no final determination has been made, but say that after nine months authorities have uncovered no information Christie either knew in advance or ordered the closure of traffic lanes.

Hardest hit by the news: MSNBC.

@JohnEkdahl Quick, let's turn on MSNBC and see who cries.

.@Tom_Winter @jonathan4ny Is @msnbc going to do wall-to-wall coverage of this story or will the lone tweet suffice? https://t.co/vAwhCGawSS

@guypbenson @iowahawkblog STOP THE PRESSES. No doubt MSNBC will go wall to wall with this earth shattering news. ( Crickets)….

@Tom_Winter @jimgeraghty @jonathan4ny I promise this will get at LEAST as much coverage as the original allegations. Promise.

@Tom_Winter @NoahCRothman @jonathan4ny Great scoop, sorry no one else will report it. They're probably "busy."

After nine months, isn’t it time to move on? Or does the scandal just go deeper?

@Tom_Winter @jimgeraghty @jonathan4ny that will not be enough for Christie haters

@Tom_Winter @charlescwcooke @jonathan4ny Doesn't mean they won't keep looking.

Wow, federal investigators are involved in the coverup. https://t.co/KfFq7ggZUm

@JohnEkdahl That just proves that we need more investigation.

I would add: while Hayes and the MSNBC gang were fapping to #bridgegate, CNN did real investigative journalism in uncovering the VA scandal.

@Tom_Winter @jimgeraghty @jonathan4ny Nice- looking forward now to the Feds investigating corruption in the IRS, VA, DoJ, etc.
