US attorney subpoenas Baroni bridge scandal testimony
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- The joint legislative committee investigating the George Washington Bridge scandal has been subpoenaed again -- this time for video and audio recordings of testimony from a former top Port Authority of New York and New Jersey official.
The federal subpoena, obtained by The Associated Press, requests all video and audio recordings of testimony delivered by Bill Baroni before the Assembly's transportation committee in November 2013. It also asks for records the select committee has obtained so far.
The committee also was subpoenaed last April.
Baroni testified the lane closures were part of a traffic study. But documents released a year ago suggest they were politically motivated.
Baroni and his attorney didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.
A spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office declined comment.
