TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A New Jersey legislative committee has ordered current and former aides to Republican Gov. Chris Christie and two officials at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to testify in the committee’s probe of politically motivated traffic jams last year near the George Washington Bridge.
Lawmakers announced Tuesday that they had issued subpoenas to former Christie aide Christina Genovese Renna, current press secretary Michael Drewniak, Port Authority Commissioner William Schuber and executive director Patrick Foye. Drewniak was looped in on the email exchange leading to the lane closures.
“These are individuals from whom we’ve received documents or individuals from whom we have references in existing documents,” Assemblyman John Wisniewski told WCBS 880’s Alex Silverman.
