People connected to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s former campaign manager have been questioned by the FBI, CNN reports.

Bill Stepien said federal agents came to his house and also interviewed people who know him.

“In recent weeks, federal criminal investigators have made their interest in him plain, traveling to his home and importuning his landlord and presumably others to provide information about his conduct and character,” Stepien’s lawyer, Kevin Marino, said.

Christie appointee Bridget Anne Kelly also received a visit from the FBI, CNN reported.

The interactions are the first clear sign that the FBI wants to question people with close ties to the governor, CNN reported.
