Chris Christie Re-Election Campaign Subpoenaed by U.S. Attorney
You thought Bridgegate was over? Please. Not close! A U.S. attorney has issued a grand jury subpoena Chris Christie’s re-election campaign, the New York Times reports.
The New Jersey Republican party has also been issued a grand jury subpoena by the U.S. attorney.
A person briefed on the matter said the prosecutors had also issued grand jury subpoenas to a number of the 20 people and entities — including both potential witnesses and people who have come under scrutiny in the inquiry — that received subpoenas last week from a New Jersey legislative committee whose investigation largely parallels the federal inquiry.
“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,” the lawyer, Mark D. Sheridan, said in an email.
The subpoenas all focus on the closing of lanes leading to the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee last year.
