Assemblyman John Wisniewski, a Democrat, said he doesn’t know what evidence Wildstein may have but said it could be an email or document that fell beyond the date range called for in the original subpoena.
Wildstein is among 20 people and organizations close to Christie who must comply with a new round of subpoenas by Monday, though Wisniewski said almost all the recipients have requested more time.
When Wildstein, a former political blogger who has known Christie since high school, appeared before the legislative panel, he asserted his right against self-incrimination and refused to answer any questions. His lawyer, Alan Zegas, has said Wildstein would testify if granted immunity from prosecution.
Wildstein has been identified as the person who ordered the lane closings. He resigned from a $150,000-per-year job that he got with Christie’s blessing because of the scandal.
"Any time you have disgruntled employees leave an operation you always wonder what’s going to happen," Mackowiak said. "You could see this coming. Their lives have changed forever."
