Washington — Michigan officials have provided congressional investigators with tens of thousands of documents related to the Flint water crisis since the start of the year.
The office of Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is continuing to work “cooperatively” with the House Oversight and Reform Committee to produce the documents that the panel requested, Nessel spokesman Dan Olsen said this week.
“Our office has already supplied the committee with tens of thousands of pages of documents, and we are diligently working to send the rest,” Olsen said.
Olsen added that, while some of the records provided to the committee have been submitted previously, “most of these pages of documents are new.”
The Attorney General’s Office is sending the documents in response to Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings of Maryland, who in late December wrote to then-Gov. Rick Snyder asking he “fully comply” with the committee’s 2016 bipartisan request for documents related to the water crisis.
Well, there is a lesson to be learned in all this.
Prediction: lowest turnout ever.
Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican critic of President Donald Trump, is set to be the keynote speaker at this year’s Mackinac Policy Conference and talk about the “current national political climate,” the Detroit Regional Chamber said Thursday.
Oh, the guy that loser Brian Calley endorsed in 2016?
Liars gonna lie, yes? Reckon that’s why Kasich works for Very Fake News.
Other scheduled conference speakers include Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen[nomics] Whitmer; former Florida governor and 2016 Republican presidential hopeful Jeb [Please clap] Bush; Democratic strategist and Fox News contributor Donna Brazile [Crooked Hillary’s BFF]; Stacey Abrams [Tank], the 2018 Democratic candidate for Georgia governor; Detroit Mayor Mike [Demo Disaster] Duggan; and Michigan congressional members.
Am sorely disappointed that they were not able to get Maxine ‘Peach foty fi’ Waters to attend. It would complete their agenda.
Hmmm, now where have we seen this exact kind of pathetic display of low T beta manlet before?

Here comes your fuel tax and fee hikes.
Both sides, along with Gov. Rick Snyder, generally agree on the need for $1.2 billion a year in additional road funding, but they’ll need 54 votes to get it done. Cotter’s willingness to at least consider $800 million in new revenue likely increases the odds of a deal.
“For me, it’s not just about the proportion — how much is new revenue and how much is general fund — but all the other details that go into making up a package,” Cotter, R-Mt. Pleasant, said Thursday. “I want to see what are the forms of new revenue, where’s it coming from and to what degree, but then also what other pieces of the package exist.”
The governor and legislative leaders from both sides of the aisle have been meeting regularly – twice in each of the past two weeks, according to Snyder — in hopes of reaching an agreement they all can live with.
“The lieutenant governor and I, I think it’s fair to say we both think there’s been a lot of progress in these meetings,” Snyder said last week. “Issues are coming up [indeed], we’re having a healthy discussion and people are trying to be good problem solvers. People are trying to come to a good solution.”
Cotter said he thinks they’re “very close” to a deal, but he also acknowledged he’s said that before.
“I’ve been saying for some time now that I’d like to get this to the floor in October, and I think we’re on a good pace to do that,” he said.
