In other news, David Wildstein has plead guilty while Bill Baroni and Bridget Kelly have been charged in connection with the Bridgegate scandal involing the politically-motivated closure of the George Washington Bridge.

According to Wildstein's plea, there is no question that the closure was punitive.

“Did you agree with Mr. Baroni and Ms. Kelly to punish Mayor Sokolich by causing significant lane access problems,” the judge asked, staring down from the bench at Mr. Wildstein.

“Yes,” Mr. Wildstein answered.

Wildstein also admitted that the first day of school was chosen for maximum impact.

Meanwhile, 6 officers were charged today in connection with the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore.

Here's video of the press conference held by the local state's attorney where the charges were announced.
