The law firm hired to look into New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's involvement in the George Washington Bridge scandal released new information about its investigation Monday.

The firm has made 75 witness interview summaries public, including one with Christie.

Christie's administration hired the firm to look into allegations that he knew about lane closures on the GWB that caused major traffic jams in Fort Lee in September.

Some suspected that the closures were an act of political retribution against the city's mayor.

The report cleared Christie and blamed the incident on aide Bridget Kelly and former Port Authority official David Wildstein.

New Jersey Democrats blasted the findings, saying the firm didn't investigate uncooperative Christie staffers, leaving major gaps in its results.

Federal prosecutors and state lawmakers are conducting their own investigations.

The firm's report, along with the summaries, can be found online at gdcreport.com.
