Bridget Kelly Pleads The Fifth

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Governor Christie’s former Deputy Chief of Staff Bridget Kelly has pleaded the fifth and is not going to comply with the subpoena from the legislative committee.

Earlier subpoenaed documents show an email from Bridget Kelly to former Port Authority official David Wildstein stating, “Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee”. Soon after Christie learned of this information Kelly was let go from her position in his administration and has been relatively absent from the media except for a staged photo-op a few weeks ago.

Kelly’s lawyer Michael Critchley sent a letter to the investigatory committee looking into the whole bridgegate debacle that said Bridget will not be submitting the information they demanded because it “overlaps with a parallel federal grand jury investigation being conducted by the United States Attorney’s Office”.

Her lawyer went on to explain that another reason she is not complying is because the committee has asked for additional information that has nothing to do with the lane closures including: her personal diaries, calendars and all of her electronic devices. He sees this as an invasion of privacy.

The deadline for the subpoenaed information was Monday night and it seems like only four out of twenty officials have handed over the requested documents. This means that 14 other individuals and two organizations have either pleaded the fifth or asked for an extension.

Assemblyman John Wisniewski who is leading the investigation into this scandal spoke about the failure by many not to comply, including Bridget Kelly.

“Well clearly there’s a divergence of opinion between our counsel and her counsel and obviously she’ll follow the advice her counsel gives her. We’re working with our counsel on what our response will be so we can make sure the work of the committee moves forward,” he said.
