Chris Christie helicopter dataThe New Jersey state committee investigating the George Washington Bridge traffic jam wants to see Gov. Chris Christie’s helicopter flight records, trying to determine if one flight took him over the scene of the epic mess created by Christie’s aides.

Continuing an aggressive hunt for records, the joint investigative committee on Monday authorized 18 new subpoenas for information, including one to the New Jersey State Police aviation unit, which operates the helicopters, according to a source familiar with the committee.  A spokesman for Christie confirmed one flight in that vicinity during the four-day traffic jam: a trip from Sept. 11 ceremony at the World Trade Center site back to Trenton, the New Jersey capital.

During that ceremony in Manhattan, Christie was photographed laughing with David Wildstein, who ordered the traffic diversion at the local-access toll lanes, resulting in a four-day tie-up in Fort Lee. Wildstein, one of Christie’s political hires at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, has been seeking immunity to tell his version of events; recently, his lawyer wrote a letter saying that “evidence exists” to show that Christie wasn’t being truthful when he said he never learned about the traffic snarls until they were over. The letter didn’t say what that evidence was.
