Booker: Probe into Christie's Bridgegate Involvement "Appropriately Agressive"


When the allegations that the Christie administration was involved in shutting approach lanes to the George Washington Bridge - leading to hours of gridlock - Sen. Cory Booker said he was "deeply troubled."

Booker told WNYC's Morning Edition that he is paying very close attention to ongoing investigations which he called "appropriately aggressive."

"We did one inquiry from the commerce committee that I'm sitting on to make sure we're getting to the bottom of this," said Booker.

"Whether you believe or not, you've got to get the facts first." Booker said he was happy to hear the Christie administration castigate itself over the scandal and appear willing to work with investigators.
