AT&T Surrenders Christie Phone Records

AT&T has turned over phone records of a top aide to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to the legislative panel investigating the George Washington Bridge lane closures.

Lawmakers requested a month of data, including text messages, sent or received by Regina Egea. She testified in July that she texted the governor her thoughts about December testimony on the bridge probe but later deleted the messages.

Christie said he does not remember receiving the messages.

Committee co-chairman Assemblyman John Wisniewski tells The Record newspaper AT&T turned over the times and dates of the calls and text messages. But the company said it no longer maintained the content of the text messages.

Wisniewski is trying to determine if the times and phone numbers are significant.
