TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The head of a New Jersey legislative panel investigating a political payback plot says a review undertaken by Gov. Chris Christie’s lawyers lacks credibility because information from key players in the operation is missing.

Assemblyman John Wisinewski says the lack of cooperation from ex-aides Bridget Kelly and Bill Stepien raises questions about the thoroughness of the report due out soon.

Randy Mastro, the lawyer hired by Christie to lead the review, told The New York Times Monday that the governor handed over his iPhone and permitted his email accounts to be searched.

The paper reported that the review will clear Christie of involvement in the plot to manufacture traffic jams in Fort Lee, apparently to punish the town’s mayor for not endorsing Christie.

Criminal and civil investigations are ongoing.
