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.
