TRENTON - The U.S. Attorney's office has announced additional subpoenas for Gov. Chris Christie's re-election campaign in the Bridge-Gate scandal.
The first round of Federal subpoenas are aimed directly at operatives close to Gov. Christie, and come on the heels of almost two dozen legislative subpoenas issued by the state Assembly.
"We can confirm that the Christie for Governor re-election campaign and the New Jersey Republican State Committee received subpoenas for documents from the U.S. Attorney's office, in addition to the subpoena the campaign previously received from the state legislative committee,” said a lawyer representing the targets of the subpoenas. “All three subpoenas focus on the closure of lanes on the George Washington Bridge. The campaign and the state party intend to cooperate with the U.S. Attorney's office and the state legislative committee and will respond to the subpoenas accordingly."
