Dunt dunt dunnnn...

From USA Today:

TRENTON, N.J. — The lawyer for a New Jersey Legislature joint committee probing the George Washington Bridge lane closure hinted in court Tuesday that more discussions about the incident took place involving two of the governor's key aides.

Lawyer Reid Schar argued that Gov. Chris Christie's former deputy chief of staff, Bridget Anne Kelly, and former Christie campaign manager William Stepien should be forced to turn over documents that the joint panel has subpoenaed. He said the committee issued "very focused subpoenas" and was not engaged in a fishing expedition.

Superior Court Judge Mary Jacobson pushed the issue with Schar on whether more evidence exists than investigators know already.

"You're making inferences that more exist," Jacobson said.

"We know that more exist," Schar said.


Existing and known e-mails, which Marino (Stepien's lawyer) read in court, "do not permit the fair inference that there are other documents," he said.

In rebuttal, Schar said the existence of additional documents is not an open question.

"I'm not guessing, judge," he said. "I know it because I've seen them."

Well, this is interesting. How, I wonder, has Reid Schar seen these documents if they have not been provided under the subpoena? Any Kosack lawyers in the house? Please comment if you have any ideas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
