The New Jersey Legislative Select Committee on Investigation probing the unannounced lane closures at the George Washington Bridge last September has no future hearings scheduled because they don't want to interfere with a federal criminal probe by the U.S. Attorney's Office. Taking a look back at the SCI's work, the panel's co-chair is positive.
On Monday, Christie's chief of staff, Kevin O'Dowd also told the legislative committee probing Bridgegate that he doesn't know what he could have done differently to prevent the unannounced lane closures.
Assemblyman John Wisniewski said Thursday that new subpoenas could be drafted and issued for two of the key players in the Bridgegate scandal, but he also suggested there is more than one way to skin a cat.
A former aide to Gov. Chris Christie whose job included getting re-election endorsements from mayors said Tuesday that he was "dumbfounded and disappointed" to learn that a northern New Jersey mayor was apparently targeted in a political payback plot orchestrated by Christie loyalists.
The New Jersey legislative committee investigating the Bridgegate scandal will take center stage again next month when it calls four witnesses to testify. Tuesday, Gov. Chris Christie was asked if his office will continue to cooperate with the probe, and he said his administration will play ball -- for the time being.
Gov. Chris Christie and other defendants will get more time to file their responses to two lawsuits related to the September lane closures at the George Washington Bridge that are central to a traffic jam scandal threatening the Republican governor's political ambitions.
On Wednesday, a judge ruled that two key figures in Bridgegate do not have to comply with subpoenas issued by the legislative committee investigating the scandal. The top Republican in the Assembly said it is time for the legislature to step aside and let federal prosecutors take over.
