Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's top staffers are among 20 people and organizations subpoenaed in a widening traffic jam scandal that has shaken his administration.

Christie's chief of staff, chief counsel and top communications aide are among those to receive subpoenas Thursday and Friday. Christie for Governor also was subpoenaed.

The subpoenas seek documents in the investigation of a scheme to close traffic lanes near the George Washington Bridge, causing massive traffic tie-ups. The plot may have been carried out to settle a political score.

Some of those on the list could be called to testify later.

The lawyer representing on person implicated in the plot says his client would testify if granted immunity from prosecution.

Christie has apologized for the traffic jams and said they "blindsided" him. He has called his staff's behavior "stupid."

Here is the complete list of subpoenas related to 'Bridgegate':

Regina Egea

Michael Drewniak

Christina Genovese

Maria Comella

Evan Ridley

Colin Reed

Kevin O'Dowd

David Wildstein

    NYPD probing raising of white flags at Brooklyn Bridge

    Wednesday, July 23 2014 1:55 PM EDT2014-07-23 17:55:02 GMT
    The NYPD is investigating a major security breach at the Brooklyn Bridge, one of the most highly secured landmarks in New York City. Two white flags — international symbols of surrender — fluttered from poles on the stone supports that hold cables above the bridge connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan. The flags had a faint appearance of the stars and stripes. The American flags that are normally up at the bridge appeared to have been removed.
