Gov. Snyder Doesn’t Think He Will Be Charged In Flint Water Probe

LANSING (AP) – Gov. Rick Snyder says he has “no reason to be concerned” about being charged in the Flint water investigation.

Snyder’s comments to the Detroit Free Press occurred as the bill for his legal fees reached $4.9 million — all paid by taxpayers. The governor says much of the money has been spent on producing documents requested by Attorney General Bill Schuette’s investigators.

Snyder says investigators “keep on asking” and his lawyers “keep on responding.”

Schuette filed charges against four more people this week, raising the number to 13. They include two Snyder-appointed emergency managers who were running Flint when the city was using the Flint River for drinking water.

The water wasn’t treated for corrosion, causing lead to leach from pipes and fixtures.

  1. Of course he “thinks” that he won’t be charged with any crimes involving the Flint water catastrophe. Hell, he knows that charges won’t be brought up against him as long as Schuette is leading the witch hunt. That fact, plus almost 3 million in tax-payer dollars going to the best lawyers that he can find!
