Lawyers for two key figures in a political payback scandal ensnaring Gov. Chris Christie's administration are trying to persuade a judge not to force them to turn over text messages and other private communications to New Jersey legislators investigating the matter.
Fired Christie staffer Bridget Kelly and two-time campaign manager Bill Stepien say complying with the subpoenas carries the risk of self-incrimination.
The subpoenas seek documents involving the intentional blocking of traffic near the George Washington Bridge in September, which created hourslong backups in nearby Fort Lee, apparently to punish the town's Democratic mayor. (AP)
