TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says legislators have questioned two of his aides for more than 11 hours without learning anything new about manufactured traffic jams near the George Washington Bridge.

Christie told a radio audience Tuesday that spokesman Michael Drewniak didn't say anything that isn't contained in a report commissioned by the governor that was released in March.

He said former aide Christina Renna also didn't provide new details when she testified last week.

Democrats have criticized the report as a whitewash of the lane closures, carried out by Christie loyalists.

The legislative panel is trying to find out who ordered traffic diverted for four days last September and why.

The episode has become a major distraction for Christie as the Republican contemplates a 2016 presidential run.
