Michigan plans to charge former Gov. Snyder in Flint water investigation

Source: Crains Detroit Business

Former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, his health director and other ex-officials have been told they're being charged after a new investigation of the Flint water scandal, which devastated the majority Black city with lead-contaminated water and was blamed for a deadly outbreak of Legionnaires' disease in 2014-15, The Associated Press has learned.

Two people with knowledge of the planned prosecution told the AP on Tuesday that the attorney general's office has informed defense lawyers about indictments in Flint and told them to expect initial court appearances soon. They spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

The AP could not determine the nature of the charges against Snyder, former health department director Nick Lyon and others who were in the Snyder administration. The attorney general's office declined to comment on details of the ongoing investigation. Spokeswoman Courtney Covington Watkins said investigators were "working diligently" and "will share more as soon as we're in a position to do so."

Snyder's attorney didn't return calls seeking comment.

7. Oh please, make it so.

With all that has been going on, the Flint story kind of got buried in the heap of other news. But fear not, Dana Nessel is ON THE JOB BABY.

Tricky Ricky, you are going to that jailhouse, just like DT. Maybe the two sociopaths can bunk together.

9. All of the 2010 Teabilly governors should be punished severely.

Rick Scott, Scott Walker, Paul LePage...should do 25 to Life and lose all financial assets. Koch Industries is the root of all evil.
