From Lawyer Herald:

Gibson Dunn & Crutcher LLP attorney Randy Mastro yesterday declined a request by lawmakers to turn over notes taken during the interviews of over 70 witnesses that supported an internal report conclusion that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has no knowledge about the lane closures near the George Washington Bridge. Bloomberg said that the internal probe was ordered (by) no less than the New Jersey governor himself, and had allowed the firm to have access to his office and his phone call data to determine his involvement in the lane closings.


In a statement released through Christie's office, Mastro said, "The Governor's Office is fully cooperating with the US Attorney Office's investigation, and in that regard, has not publicly released accounts of interviews conducted in connection with the Gibson Dunn investigation. If the Joint Committee chooses to issue further subpoenas, the governor's office will review and respond to them at that time."

Assemblyman John Wisniewski, who is one of the two outspoken critics of the Gibson Dunn report, said that the Joint Committee will be issuing a subpoena for the release of the documents. Telling Bloomberg, he said Christie has done a full 360 regarding his initial promise on the 'Bridgegate' scandal.

Mr. Mastro, I do not think "fully cooperating" means what you think it means.

The documents were requested by two members of the committee, and here we see Mastro responding, "No - if you want them so badly, subpoena me, and then I'll maybe consider it." Crooks all.

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.
