The Bridgegate saga may be coming to a head, Save Jerseyans, as ABC News reports that a grand jury has been convened at Newark’s federal courthouse and Michael Drewniak, press secretary to Governor Christie as well as his former spokesman at the U.S. Attorney’s office, presented on Friday to testify as a witness:

Drewniak was inside the courthouse for more than two hours.
