(CNN) - Following the release of damaging e-mails that showed an epic traffic jam was tied to his office, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said he was shocked and blindsided by the revelations within. He also said that the New Jersey State Assembly has every right to investigate the scandal.
And it won't just be Democrats on the Assembly committee probe. Republican New Jersey Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick says he has reason to believe a "substantial number" of Republicans will also be on the committee investigating the governor.
"I trust the governor's word," Bramnick told CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper." "The last guy who is going to lie to the cameras, in my opinion, is Governor Chris Christie."
"If a governor lies about what he knows, that's troublesome. That didn't happen here," said Bramnick.
