New Jersey Assemblyman John Wiesnewski (D), who has helped lead the investigation into the bridge scandal, said on Sunday that the letter from David Wildstein’s lawyer claiming that “evidence exists” that ties New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to the lane closures just “raises questions.”
“Well, the question is it’s– the use of the words ‘evidence exists,’ as opposed to saying, ‘I have documents,’ or, ‘I have an e-mail.’ It’s a curious choice of words, which maybe he knows somebody else that has information. Maybe this is a conversation he had. Maybe this is something else that is not within the scope of the subpoena the committee issued,” Wisniewski said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “What does he have and why doesn’t the committee have it?”
The assemblyman said that none of the documents that Wildstein submitted to the committee indicate that Christie knew about the lane closures.
“Nothing yet implicates the governor directly,” Wisniewski said.
