TRENTON, N.J. — New Jersey lawmakers investigating the traffic jams at the heart of the scandal engulfing Gov. Chris Christie said Friday that federal prosecutors have ordered them to share documents they have gathered.

The committee co-chairs, Sen. Loretta Weinberg and Assemblyman John Wisniewski, said in a statement that they will comply.

“This reaffirms our progress in uncovering important information about the apparent abuse of government power and threat to public safety,” they said.

Lawmakers and federal prosecutors have been probing the September lane closures near the George Washington Bridge.

They were ordered by an ex-aide to Christie and a former official at the transit agency that runs the bridge as political retribution aimed at the mayor of Fort Lee, the town where traffic was tied up.
