FLINT, Mich. (AP) — Michigan’s attorney general plans to announce civil charges related to Flint’s lead-tainted water crisis.

Attorney General Bill Schuette and members of his special investigative team have scheduled a Wednesday morning news conference in Flint to detail the lawsuit.

Two months ago, the state filed criminal charges against two state environmental regulators and a city of Flint water employee.

Flint’s drinking water was switched from a Detroit system to the Flint River in 2014 but not properly treated, resulting in corrosion of lead pipes and elevated lead levels in some children.

Schuette spokesman Andrea Bitely declined further comment on the civil case until the news conference.

    Once again, it will not be anyone high up, and certainly no one connected with the Governor. More dog and pony BS from Schuette, who is now himself guilty of being an accessory after the fact by trying to help cover for the real guilty parties. We need a federal grand jury, but with the Justice Department bought and paid for it will never happen.
