Gov. Chris Christie has been subpoenaed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, according to the governor.
Christie confirmed on 101.5 FM that federal officials have subpoenaed his office as part of the ongoing inquiry into the George Washington Bridge lane closure controversy.
“We are complying with that in the same way we are complying with the legislative subpoenas,” Christie said. “We will comply and cooperate with the U.S. Attorney’s inquiry into this.”
Christie indicated his office wasn’t caught off guard by the subpoenas.
“We had already indicated that we were going to comply voluntarily,” he said. “And they sent a subpoena and that’s fine.”
The governor didn’t indicate when the subpoenas are due.
Christie was speaking on the monthly call-in program Ask the Governor.

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
