20 Subpoenas Issued in Bridge-gate Controversy

Thursday, 16 Jan 2014 08:06 PM

Twenty subpoenas for documents are being issued to people and organizations in the investigation into a traffic jam scandal that involves New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's associates.

The subpoenas went out Thursday, soon after the state Assembly authorized a special committee to extend its inquiry.

Assemblyman John Wisinewski, who is leading the investigation, would not name any subpoena recipients until the documents are served, presumably by Friday.

However, he has indicated that people whose names appeared in previously obtained emails and text messages are likely to receive subpoenas.

They include fired Christie aide Bridget Anne Kelly and former Christie campaign manager Bill Stepien.

The closures near the George Washington Bridge were apparently ordered as political payback and caused massive traffic backups.
