Seven defendants in the Flint water crisis were in court to hear Judge Manley decisions on key issues. The biggest ruling was the release of over 250 thousand City of Flint documents and emails, allowing the lawyers access to this mountain of information. Next, there was the argument against Office of Inspector General (OIG) and the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) to get them to release all the notes from their investigations and interviews in regards to the Flint water crisis. Last year Governor Snyder halted the investigations by both the OIG and OAG before any conclusions were made. The lawyers from the OIG and OAG argued that the documents were not complete recordings or record information. Prosecutor Flood argued that this information would be very helpful and the fact that they are fighting the release it makes it look more like a cover up. Eventually, the court ordered that all those documents be released before the preliminary court cases in March. Lastly, Mr. Flood argued against the Michigan state police wanting them to halt the release of any composed statements to the public. The defense lawyers argued that they have a right to any of the information, composed or not. Judge Manley ruled that the non compelled statements are to be released and Flood will argue his case again in March. On March 13, there will be a continuation of the primary examinations, as well as the sentencing of Corinne Miller.

On Tuesday, former EPA Region 5 Administrator Susan Hedman, former emergency manager Darnell Earley, former Flint mayor Dayne Walling, and VA Tech. Professor Dr. Marc Edwards, all were in Washington D.C. The hearing consisted mostly of back and forth finger-pointing of who did and didn’t do what. Here is where Rep. Tim Walberg (R-MI) rips into Susan Hedman. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) called the continuing deflection “sickening”. Overall, the main story line stayed the same.
Thursday’s hearing continued to see the blame game, and unfortunately, partisan politics. Governor Rick Snyder and EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy both were apart of the panel. Throughout the hearing, Democrats tended to accuse Gov. Snyder and his administration, while on the other side of the aisle, Republicans continued to blame the EPA. Here’s Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-PA) refusing to believe Snyder’s testimony. On the flipside, here’s Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) placing blame onto McCarthy and the EPA. One of the more unique speakings came from Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-VA) as he not only acknowledged the committees partisan roadblocks, but especially pointed blame on the EM and Gov. Snyder’s administration.
The hearings led to few new facts, and fingers continued to be pointed at the MDEQ, the EPA, Snyder’s administration, and everyone involved.
A heated democratic battle on the Atlantic in New Hampshire took a backseat as Hillary Clinton took the trip westward to see the Flint water crisis firsthand.
House of Prayer Missionary Church held services as usual, full of big smiles and soulful tunes. After the services came to a close, the crowd didn’t waiver as the entirety of the men and women stayed put and gave a standing ovation to Hillary and Mayor Karen Weaver taking the stage.
The former Secretary of State began her speech by quoting a Psalms verse, saying in addition how nice it is to be with the pastor as they’ve both lived in Pine Bluff, Arkansas.
From there, Hillary quoted just how poorly the state government has been during the crisis, “What happened in Flint is immoral. The children of Flint are just as precious as the children in any part of America.”
Clinton also called attention to a near $600 million dollar bill going through Congress saying the bill needs to be passed, saying “…this is no time for politics as usual.”
“I will fight for you in Flint, no matter how long it takes”, Clinton said as she wrapped up her speech with her commitment to the city until the problem ceases to exist.
“Let’s make sure we take care of the people of Flint and give every child a chance to grow up to their God-given potential!”
Politics and presidential runs aside, Hillary Clinton shined an even brighter spotlight on Flint and its ongoing emergency.
In all of Genesee County, there is one lab technician testing blood lead samples.
Peggy Abram, a medical technologist, is the sole person checking blood samples for lead at the Genesee County Health Department, according to herself and sources. The slow, 30-day response for whether blood tests are positive for lead is more apparent now than ever.
Ms. Abrams says the County Health Department gets over 30 walk-in blood tests a day, plus all of the samples collected at testing clinics like the one held yesterday at Carriage Town Ministries. Abram and her two co-workers say they have asked for extra resources for the lab, but have not received any help.
Families are losing time on knowing what’s in their blood, as the workload increases.
DTV has tried to get more information, but so far has gotten no response from the Genesee County Health Department.
TV station met TV station on Wednesday morning. And not just the morning, we’re talking 5 AM, the early morning.
Nonetheless ABC12 drove just minutes over to Davison High School to talk all things DTV. Marc Jacobson and the morning crew rolled in at 4:30. From then on we went live for teases, interviews and talking about DTV’s current projects, especially Undrinkable. It nearly has 42,000 views as of Wednesday, and its only growing larger. More and more people are learning about how the Flint water crisis became what it is, notably with help from Michael Moore’s tweets and independent news organizations shouting out the documentary.

ABC12’s coverage from this morning is here.
