TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Newly released notes from lawyers who interviewed Gov. Chris Christie say he was "nervous" about finding out if anyone else on his staff was involved in a politically motivated traffic jam scandal.

Christie was one of 75 people interviewed for his own office's investigation into traffic tie-ups approaching the George Washington Bridge. The notes were released Monday after a legislative panel investigating the lane closings had demanded them.

The notes show Christie pulled together key members of his government and political teams after the scandal broke. Christie's top political strategists, chief counsel and brother were among those called to the governor's mansion to find out if anyone else was involved and discuss how to handle the matter.

The scandal has been a major distraction for the possible 2016 presidential candidate.
