Get your panties out of a wad, sugar. No one has been "caught". The investigation is still on going. You sure let your Left Wing sites control your imagination.
What is at issue--
"Sutter, meanwhile, had on the day of the announcement been emailing the Greenberg Traurig lobbyist about the termination of a client from the Medicare program, the SEC said. Both then spoke on the phone for three minutes."
Yes, the SEC is wanting a transcript of a 3 minute phone call. Don't know if that is a big smoking gun--may or may not be. Way to early for you or TPM to make any assumptions.
Now before you turn all BLUE about someone refusing a court order we could discuss Holder and the Fast and Furious Document.
When the investigation first started, Mr. Sutter told an F.B.I. agent and an investigator from the Department of Health and Human Services’ inspector general’s office that he did not recall speaking with the lobbyist on his cellphone about the reimbursement policy.

A few days later, a lawyer for the House of Representatives sent a letter stating that “with the benefit of some time for reflection” Mr. Sutter may recall speaking with the lobbyist and that other statements he made “might merit clarification.” That type of admission is a red flag for investigators that they may have caught someone in a lie, making it a potentially fruitful avenue for further investigation.

Typically, the next step in an investigation is to subpoena records about any contacts the person might have had with sources of the information and potential tippees, which usually includes having them testify under oath. Whether the person will actually testify is an open question because a lawyer most likely would advise a client to assert the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination to keep from making any further damaging statements.

The S.E.C. tried to obtain information about Mr. Sutter by asking the Ways and Means Committee to voluntarily turn over records related to his government issued cellphone and records of any contacts he had with Greenberg Traurig lobbyists. The committee, however, refused to provide the requested information.

"Another Bridge Scandal Is Rocking Chris Christie's Administration"

>>>>NEW YORK, June 24 (Reuters)- A second bridge investigation linked to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is underway, this one focusing on possible securities law violations involving the Pulaski Skyway bridge, the New York Times reported on Tuesday.

The new inquiry was prompted by an ongoing investigation into "Bridgegate," the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal that has engulfed Christie, a potential 2016 Republican contender for the White House.

Now investigators from the Manhattan District Attorney's Office and the Securities and Exchange Commission are focusing on the Christie administration and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

According to the Times, officials are probing whether bond holders were intentionally deceived by a $1.8 billion agreement in 2011 to repair the Skyway, which connects the New Jersey cities of Newark and Jersey City.

In bond documents, the Port Authority said the project was part of "Lincoln Tunnel Access Infrastructure Improvements," although the Skyway is more than 9 miles (14 kilometers) south of the Lincoln Tunnel connecting Weehawken, New Jersey and midtown Manhattan in New York City.

The Christie administration had relentlessly lobbied to use Port Authority money to repair the Skyway but was told it was ineligible because the bridge is state-owned and operated, the Times reported. The Port Authority recast the bridge as an access road to the Lincoln Tunnel and the funding was secured, the newspaper said.

Investigators are scrutinizing the accuracy of the access road description as a possible violation of the Martin Act, a New York State law that carries felony charges for intentionally deceiving bond holders, according to the Times. The probe could also result in civil action under the Martin Act or by the SEC under federal securities laws.

Still underway are investigations into the George Washington Bridge scandal, in which a massive traffic disruption in September 2013 was allegedly orchestrated by two Christie aides in retaliation against the Democratic mayor of Fort Lee, who did not endorse Christie's re-election bid.

The four-day closure of access lanes in Fort Lee snarled traffic, delaying school buses, ambulances and commuters. Christie has denied he knew about or was involved in the incident. He fired one top aide and the other resigned under pressure.(Reporting by Barbara Goldberg; Editing by Susan Heavey)<<<<
