Two of Gov. Chris Christie’s former aides are due in court next month for a hearing over whether they must provide information requested by a state legislative committee.
More subpoenas are expected to be issued by a New Jersey legislative committee investigating a plot to create gridlock by blocking lanes near the George Washington Bridge.
The New Jersey Assembly confirms that subpoenas were served to Christie’s chief of staff, chief counsel, communications director and other aides.
A special legislative panel investigating an apparent political payback scheme involving Gov. Chris Christie’s aides issued 20 new subpoenas Thursday, and he made his first trip since the scandal broke to pledge he won’t be distracted from the job of rebuilding from Superstorm Sandy.
