Wisniewski Responds to Giuliani and the GOP

1-21-14

Today in an interview with NJTV News Managing Editor Mike Schneider, Assemblyman John Wisniewski suggested that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani may be using RNC talking points instead of facts.

The comments come after Giuliani called for Wisniewski to recuse himself from the investigation because he said the assemblyman was no longer being impartial.

Wisniewski questions if Republicans are willing to work in a bipartisan manner to find out the truth since they seem to be challenging those in charge of the investigation.

Wisniewski says he has “a healthy dose of skepticism” when it comes to the accounts of the people involved, which he thinks is important in getting to the bottom of who authorized Bridget Kelly to call for lane closures on the George Washington Bridge. He added that there is no reason to change the investigation.

He added that members of the Republican Party have nothing else to talk about besides his impartiality. “If they can’t challenge the message, then it’s a typical strategy to challenge the messenger,” Wisniewski said.

The assemblyman said no one should be opposed to finding out why Kelly wrote the email she did or who authorized her to do it. “If they are unwilling to agree with that, if they’re unwilling to embrace that, then we have to question their willingness to embrace a bipartisan effort to find what happened here,” Wisniewski said.
