Lawyer: Evidence Contradicts Christie on Closures

Posted: Updated:

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A former loyalist of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie who oversaw lane closings near the George Washington Bridge says there is evidence that contradicts at least one public statement the governor made about the closures.
    
In a letter Friday, David Wildstein's lawyer says evidence exists that suggests the governor knew about the closures as they happened in September.
    
The letter focuses on a January news conference where Christie's statements could be open to interpretation. But the month before, the governor had said he didn't know about the traffic problems until "well after the whole thing was over."
    
Wildstein was Christie's No. 2 man at the agency that runs the bridge. He has since resigned.
    
Christie's office denied the claims in a statement, saying they don't contradict what the governor said. Asked specifically about the Dec. 13 remarks, Christie's office reiterated their statement.
