Bridgegate panel pushes for Christie aide’s texts
While much of the New Jersey political buzz recently has focused on Gov. Chris Christie’s travel and possible presidential aspirations, a familiar story is back in the news.
Bridgegate Committee co-chair Assemblyman John Wisniewski (D-Middlesex) said the panel has subpoenaed AT&T for the phone records of top Christie aide, Regina Egea.
She testified last month that she had texted Christie about December testimony on the bridge probe, but later deleted the messages.
The governor said he has no recollection of the texts.
After being rebuffed in his search for the texts, Wisniewski said he was advised by the committee’s lawyer to go right to the carrier to try to get the information.
It is not clear whether AT&T will comply with the subpoena. The records would be due September 8.
