Christie’s Press Secretary Testifies

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) - The New Jersey Legislative Investigative Committee continued their bridgegate inquiry yesterday and the governor’s press secretary Michael Drewniak spoke about what he knew regarding the Fort Lee lane closures.

Before he had a chance to speak however, Republican legislatures Jon Bramnick and Amy Handlin stepped up to ask why this committee was spending so much money, what was being accomplished by it and why they weren’t taking their scrutiny to the Port Authority.

“Where is the outrage about the three-ring circus that is known as the Port Authority?” Handlin questioned.

“What you will hear is an attempt by John Wisniewski to continue this as long as he can in order to try to stumble on something that’s helpful in a political world,” Bramnick stated.

Once the show got started, Assemblyman Wisniewski began the questioning and Drewniak answered as many questions as he could while often referring to his attorney. He also spoke up regarding why he didn’t go directly to Governor Christie about the lane closures even after hearing that Bridget Kelly and Bill Stepien knew about them.

“There had already been discussions with senior staff and this was a final opportunity for anybody who may not have come forward already or may not have told the truth, this is your last option today,” Drewniak said.

In the end, there didn’t seem to be much new-ground covered during this testimony.
