|Cuomo's office issues statement on Bridgegate federal trial testimony, calls claim of collusion 'false and delusional.'|
|Text of October 4 Cuomo press release.|
"The only role New York played in this episode was a positive one: it was our executive director who blew the whistle and ordered the bridge reopened. To be clear, no such conversation between the governors happened, in fact no report of any kind was ever done, and whatever the admitted bridgegate architect through or dreamt about New York's involvement has no basis in fact. Anyone can say anything, especially a convicted felon spinning a tale, but it's just false and delusional."
