New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s (R) administration has hired outside legal counsel to help conduct an internal review of lane closures on the George Washington Bridge and assist with the U.S. attorney’s own investigation, according to multiple media reports.

Capital New York reported that Christie’s administration will announce Thursday the retention of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP.
