"There is a story to tell," Zegas said. "He would be happy to talk about all he knows."

On Jan. 9. Wildstein plead the fifth when he was subpoenaed to testify before a state Assembly hearing about the closures.

The New Jersey General Assembly committee investigating the lane closures announced on Friday that Wildstein is one of 20 individuals and organizations who were served with subpoenas. Some Democrats have alleged the closures were ordered by allies of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) to retaliate against a local mayor.

Documents subpoenaed by the Assembly's transportation committee as part of its initial investigation into the matter showed Wildstein played a role in the order to close the lanes. Wildstein resigned from his position at the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, which oversees the bridge, last month as questions mounted about his role in the closures, which led to days of gridlock in Fort Lee, N.J.
