The attorney for Bridget Anne Kelly on Friday attacked the internal report that singled her as the lone conspirator in the Christie administration in the George Washington Bridge scandal, saying it contained “venomous, gratuitous and inappropriate sexist remarks” that intended to discredit her.
Attorney Michael Critchley also disparaged the report by a law firm handpicked by Gov. Chris Christie and released Thursday, saying “the only credible investigation into the lane closings is being conducted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.”
“Ms. Kelly’s evidence could be critical to verifying either of the two competing versions of events,” he said. “A pre-emptive strike to isolate Ms. Kelly and impugn her credibility is not surprising.”
“Ms. Kelly is not a liar,” according to Critchley’s statement. If given the “appropriate” legal protections by the U.S. attorney, “she will be fully cooperative” with his investigation.
