U.S. prosecutors interviewed New Jersey Governor Chris Christie as part of a probe into the George Washington Bridge lane closings in 2013, Bloomberg reports.
“Governor Christie made clear from Day One that he and his administration would fully cooperate with all appropriate inquiries,” Maria Comella, a spokeswoman for the governor, said in an e-mailed statement. “That’s exactly what he has done and will continue to do, and he is very much looking forward to this matter’s conclusion.”
The interview took place within the past month, according to the Wall Street Journal, which cited unidentified people with knowledge of the matter. ABC News reported that Christie, 52, met with federal prosecutors and FBI agents at the governor’s mansion in Princeton. Prosecutors also spoke with officials ranging from lower-level employees to cabinet members.
