Snyder: Flint investigation 'critically important'

Governor Rick Snyder calls criminal charges against two state and one city of Flint employee related to the Flint water crisis "deeply troubling".

At a Wednesday afternoon press conference, Governor Rick Snyder says the investigations are "critically important".

"People deserve the truth, and deserve the answers. They want accountable government and they should get it," he says. "At the same time, I also want to make sure that we’re not casting a cloud over tens of thousands of state employees that are working very hard."

Snyder emphasized the need for due process, saying several times he didn’t want to speculate.

He did, however, say the two state employees are now suspended without pay and one – Stephen Busch – was already under review in a concurrent Michigan State Police investigation.

Snyder says that investigation is still ongoing.
