Critics of Gov. Chris Christie are pushing back on a new internal report of the "Bridgegate" scandal commissioned by the New Jersey governor, saying that the review - which exonerated Christie - is "incomplete" and that it "reads more like a novel than a work of fact". State Assemblyman John Wisniewski, a co-chairman of a separate legislative committee investigating the George Washington Bridge lane closures, told reporters on a conference call that the Christie-backed probe failed to interview some of the most important witnesses in the matter. The assemblyman also questioned the objectivity of the firm that did the report, noting the close relationship of its chief to the governor himself.
