New Jersey Assemblyman John Wisniewski (D), who has been leading the Assembly's investigation of the scandal, said in a radio interview Thursday that the Assembly's Transportation, Public Works and Independent Authorities Committee wants to speak to a number of figures associated with the scandal.

"I think next will be Bridget Kelly," Wisniewski told the radio station WCBS. "We need to hear from her."

Wisniewski said that while no subpoenas have yet been issued, the members of the committee "need to understand what [Kelly] meant" when she sent her now infamous "time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee" email to Wildstein on Aug. 13. Lawmakers also want to know "under whose authorization [Kelly] sent that email."

Wildstein appeared before Wisniewski's committee earlier on Thursday, but invoked his Fifth Amendment right and refused to answer any of the committee's questions.
