A close friend to Gov. Chris Christie, Debra Wong Yang, was one of three attorneys who interviewed the governor as part of the taxpayer-funded internal review that he ordered in the wake of the September lane closings at the George Washington Bridge. Wong Yang, a partner with Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, was, like Christie, appointed a U.S. attorney by former President George W. Bush. The two have gone on vacation with each other’s families, and Christie steered Yang a lucrative contract while U.S. attorney. She conducted the interview of Christie with Randy Mastro, the firm’s lead attorney on the matter, as well as Alexander Southwell.
This “investigation” looks even worse than it did last week.
