Bridgegate Transcripts Questioning Continues - My9 New Jersey

Bridgegate Transcripts Questioning Continues

Posted: Updated:
Trenton, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Sunday morning talk shows were buzzing about bridgegate this past weekend. Senator Loretta Weinberg appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press saying she’d be willing to “accept the governor as free and clear,” but she would like to see more information.

“We’re missing all the transcripts. Not only with his interview with the governor but his interview with all 70 of the so called witnesses,” she stated.

In addition, Assemblyman John Wisniewski and Attorney Randy Mastro sat down with ABC News to discuss the same bridgegate findings that cleared the governor of any wrongdoing.

“This report really rushes a judgment that is too early to make,” Wisniewski said.

On the other hand, Mastro pointed out that there is a different kind of lack-of-evidence in this case.

“Mr. Wisniewski, just admit it. We haven’t seen a shred of evidence that the governor knew anything about this lane realignment decision beforehand,” he said.

To discuss the back and forth between Wisniewski and Mastro, NJ.com Senior Political Reporter Darryl Isherwood offered his opinion.

“You know what I’d say about the exchange between those two is that they’re both right. Considering that they didn’t get to talk to the only three people that know what’s going on,” Isherwood said.

Although the democrats didn’t talk to Wildstein or to Kelly, they did get all the governor’s texts, iPhone, and personal e-mails.

“You know that what I think the governor is counting on. What I think he is looking for is Paul Fishman comes out and let’s just assume for a second to take this to his conclusion. Either Fishman charges some people or he drops his investigation and calls it and decides there’s nothing here. Fishman doesn’t care about the politics of this thing, he doesn’t care about the optics of this thing, he cares whether a law was broken,” Isherwood indicated.

According to the report they were able to get access to the emails within the government server of those three key players unwilling to sit down for an interview. There may possibly be a chance if it does in fact come down to testimony, that there might not be anything in writing that really implicates the governor.

“There’s a lot out there about this white wash and all that. I had a real hard time believing that Randy Mastro found a smoking gun, stuffed it in his jacket pocket, and walked away,” Isherwood exclaimed.
