The former aide to Gov. Christie whose e-mail about "traffic problems in Fort Lee" is at the center of the George Washington Bridge controversy says a federal investigator tried to speak with her family the day after Christie announced her firing, according to a new court filing.
Bridget Anne Kelly, the governor's former deputy chief of staff, disclosed information about the investigator's attempts in a filing Thursday with Superior Court in Trenton that lays out her legal argument for continuing to object to a legislative subpoena regarding the September lane closures at the bridge.
Oral arguments are scheduled for Tuesday on Kelly's objection, as well as a similar case made by former Christie campaign adviser Bill Stepien, who also has declined to comply with a subpoena from lawmakers. Both Kelly and Stepien have invoked their Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination and Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable searches and seizures.
