"We had already communicated to them that we would cooperate voluntarily. They decided to send a subpoena and that's fine," Christie said.
Christie's radio appearance comes on the heels of accusations leveled by an attorney for former Port Authority of New York and New Jersey official David Wildstein. The attorney, Alan L. Zegas, said "evidence exists" that Christie knew about the lane closures while they were happening.
Christie's office dismissed the claims, saying he had no knowledge of the political motivation behind the closures. The governor reiterated that he had nothing to do with the action during the radio appearance.
"The most important issue is did I know anything about the plan to close these lanes, did I authorize it, did I know about it, did I approve it, did I have any knowledge of it beforehand. And the answer is still the same. It's unequivocally no," Christie said.
