New Jersey’s senate majority leader wants Christie to testify

The majority leader of New Jersey's Senate said Sunday that Gov. Chris Christie (R) should testify before a legislative committee reviewing the "Bridge-gate" scandal involving the closure of lanes on the George Washington Bridge.

“If Governor Christie comes before our committee under oath and brings all these documents with him, I’d be more than satisfied,” Sen. Loretta Weinberg (D) said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

Asked whether Christie could put the matter to rest by testifying before the committee, Weinberg said: “It would depend upon what we hear from the governor and if that leads us anyplace else."
