House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) on Thursday said that lawmakers and the media should move past the controversy surrounding New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and the lane closures on the George Washington Bridge last year, noting that the governor has “held people accountable.”

“It’s time to move on,” he said during a Thursday press conference. “I think the governor made clear that mistakes were made.”

Boehner would not address whether Christie should campaign for House Republicans now that the state legislature is investigating potential political motives behind the lane closures.

The federal government is running a separate probe into Christie’s use of Sandy relief funds.
