Why did the Christie report not investigate any motive for closures?

This is what the report is trying to whitewash:

"I don't know if we'll ever know what the motive is," Christie told reporters. "As I said when I was here on Jan. 9, it mystifies me on every level why this was done. And I hope someday to have an answer to why it was done. But I certainly don't have a crystal ball and I can't tell you if or when I'll ever know. But do I hope to after all this? You bet I hope to."

If Christie can't even imagine what reason they might have had, he has a pretty poor imagination. He should at least try to guess.
But there is no likely explanation given so far except revenge.

The closures weren't down lightly. He is basically saying willing to jeopardize their careers for a show-off gesture. He might at least have thrown out the idea that they were in the pay of his enemies!

I feel that's highly unlikely that the closure could have been payback to Ft. Lee's mayor. Here is another take on the motive:

Now, these developers really had a lot to lose if those lanes were not available right next to their development.

2. That is a pretty big point. Christie is basically saying he doesn't care why New Jersey residents

suffered. Even if you believe him about not being the cause, you have to wonder why he doesn't care that if happened...

3. The investigation was designed to avoid questions that would lead to answers.
