More subpoenas to be issued in NJ bridge probe

Updated Monday, Feb. 10, 2014 | 2:33 p.m.

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — At least a dozen new subpoenas have been authorized by a New Jersey legislative committee investigating a plot by aides to Gov. Chris Christie to create gridlock by blocking traffic lanes near the George Washington Bridge.

The panel also agreed Monday to take additional steps to enforce subpoenas to two key figures in the bridge scandal that is engulfing the administration of the Republican governor and possible 2016 presidential candidate.

Former Christie campaign manager Bill Stepien and fired deputy chief of staff Bridget Kelly have asserted their right against self-incrimination and refused to comply with the document subpoenas.

The panel on Monday voted along party lines to reject those objections and continue to seek most of the documents.
