Regina Egea, then Gov. Christie’s governor’s liaison to the Port Authority and now perhaps his incoming chief of staff, deleted texts she sent to the governor with her opinions of the testimony Port Authority employees said in their testimony on the Bridgegate scandal in the early days of the investigation.
And she said it all to the legislative panel now investigating top Christie aides and operatives like a top-level public employee deleting communications with a governor was no big thing.
This video of Egea’s testimony today was compiled by American Bridge, from NJTV’s video.
Egea isn’t sure if she deleted these communications before January 8th of this year, when the order to close the lanes was found to come from inside Christie’s inner office, by his deputy chief of staff Bridget Kelly, after Christie had long denied his team’s involvement and mocked anybody suggesting different.
