Meanwhile, the same committee has told a number of recipients of a previous wave of subpoenas that they’re not buying any “Fifth Amendment” excuses, particularly “BridgeGhazi Bridget” Kelly:
The joint legislative committee probing the September traffic jams on the George Washington Bridge, which is threatening to derail New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political career, met Monday afternoon to review the subpoenaed documents they have acquired so far.
Many of the documents have not been handed over, as several of the 20 people and organizations – with links to the governor–have been given an extension or are invoking their Fifth Amendment rights and refusing to produce the material.
NBC reported that NJ legislature’s “Super Committee” investigating the George Washington Bridge closings in Fort Lee has voted to enforce subpoenas for documents from former Christie deputy chief of staff Bridget Kelly, threatening to hold her in contempt if she does not comply.
