Matt Katz has covered New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for more than three years, first for The Philadelphia Inquirer, where he created The Christie Chronicles blog, and now for WNYC and New Jersey Public Radio, ...
Responses to just four of the 20 subpoenas issued in the Bridgegate scandal have been provided to the special investigative committee in the New Jersey Legislature, WNYC has learned. The documents were due Monday.
Those complying are all current or former Port Authority officials: Philippe Danielides, aide to the authority Chairman; Cristina Lado, director for government and community affairs; Paul Nunziato, president of the police union; and Bill Baroni, the top Christie appointee who resigned for his involvement in the scandal.
According to someone familiar with the Legislature’s investigation, the 14 other people subpoenaed -- plus the office of the governor and the Christie campaign -- have either requested extensions or objected to the subpoena request.
Two key witnesses in the investigation -- Bill Stepien, Christie's former campaign manager, and Bridget Kelly, the governor's former deputy chief of staff -- have said through their attorneys that they would not comply with the subpoena, citing constitutional objections.
Federal investigators are also subpoenaing documents, including from Christie’s office. Those are due Wednesday.
