U.S. Attorney ends speculation about Norcross

By David Wildstein, October 09 2018 3:57 pm

The U.S. Department of Justice has put a stop to rumors that George Norcross, one of New Jersey’s most powerful political leaders, is involved in any federal investigation of procurement tax credits.

In a letter obtained by the New Jersey Globe, First Assistant U.S. Attorney Rachael A. Honig has notified Norcross’ attorney, Michael Critchley, that the matter has been closed.

“Based on a review of the applicable law and evidence obtained during the investigation, we have concluded that no further action is warranted.  Accordingly, this matter has been closed,” Honig said.

A statement from Critchley said the following:

“Last month, we learned that for a brief period of time over two years ago, some of Mr. Norcross’ phone calls were monitored. The reviews ended quickly after it became clear that neither he nor the people with whom he works or associates did anything wrong or untoward.

Mr. Norcross has received written and verbal confirmation from the United States Attorneys Offices that he was not a target of any investigation and that he is not the focus of any ongoing investigation. A copy of the written confirmation from the United States Attorney’s office in New Jersey is attached. Separately, the Eastern District of Pennsylvania has confirmed the same to me. Because it was neither needed nor requested, Mr. Norcross did not meet with any investigators.

It is an unfortunate fact of life that people can draw scrutiny based on unknown allegations. Mr. Norcross thanks the government for letting him know that neither he nor anyone with whom he works did anything wrong and that its’ work ended quickly and without any finding of impropriety. As he has for years, Mr. Norcross will remain focused on the renaissance of Camden and helping the city build a brighter future.”
