Subpoena Issued to Key ‘Bridgegate’ Figure

Assemblyman John Wisniewski announced Tuesday that he has issued a subpoena to Wildstein, who was forced out of his post over the lane-closing controversy.

The subpoena orders Wildstein to appear Jan. 9 before the Assembly committee investigating the lane closings that led to gridlock on the New Jersey side of the bridge.

Wildstein ordered the lanes closed without notice in September. He was Gov. Chris Christie’s No. 2 man at the Port Authority until being forced out.

Christie’s top deputy at the authority, Bill Baroni, has also resigned.

Three separate investigations seek to determine if the lanes were closed as political retribution against Fort Lee’s mayor, which Christie has denied.
