Bridgegate committee gets list of people interviewed for Christie’s internal report

TRENTON – Lawmakers investigating the George Washington Bridge lane closure controversy will find out who was interviewed by the law firm commissioned by the Gov. Chris Christie administration to conduct an internal review.

The legislative committee received a list of 75 names of people the firm, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, interviewed as part of its internal review of the administration. The review, which cleared Christie of any wrongdoing, failed to disclose the names of individuals interviewed by the firm.

“I got a list of 75 names,” said co-chairman of the joint legislative committee, Assemblyman John Wisniewski.

The original report cited interviewing 70 people for the review. Wisniewski said he could not explain the discrepancy.

The committee gave the firm until today to hand over the list and other documents related to its investigation. Committee members threatened to issue a round of subpoenas if the documents are not delivered.

Wisniewski would not identify who was on the list and said the additional documents, but said lawmakers expect to receive the additional documents – namely records of interviews – by Monday.

“We’re supposed to get the interviews on Monday. We’ll analyze those and then we’re looking to hear oral testimony [as soon as May],” he said.
